The premise is quite simple. Here in the mountains of BC winter gets COLD. We want to have comfortable chickens.
So what materials are avialable. How can a i build a strong warm coop capable of handling a mountain winter.
It has to be strong Shed snow easily and easy to keep warm.
I want to use locally avialbe materils if at all possible. Simply driving to the hardware store in 150 kms round trip.For those of you who are not Metrically inclined it take a solid 2 hours to drive to the hardware store and return.Same goes for the bank and groceries or doctor or any such thing most would consider convient.
So we live in logging country. So small logs are my first choice. But only ones that i can lift into my truck and wont stick out the back of the 6 foot box too far.
