    How do I get my coop in the "Small Cops" section?
  3. AdamCanFly
    Thanks! I'm going to be adding a PVC feeder, and a nipple water-er with a 15 gallon rain barrel in the near future.

    Very cute coop! I love it! My coop also have a stair/ramp like this, and is no problem for my chickens, I love to see them going upstairs , specially the rooster because he is so big!!!

    They got up it with surprising ease. I was worried about that myself at first, but when they were young they could walk right up it, then jump up on the roosts. I put a box in the coop to help them get on the roost when they were really small. Now I can take the ramp out and they jump right up there.

    The ladder looks awfully steep though, how did the younger birds handle it?

    Thanks Rawr! I think you could fit as many as 5 chickens in this coop. I think the run is the limiting factor. You could fit more if you made the run a little bigger, or if you could be there to open the coop door every morning. The cut grass is great, but I don't put it in there every time I mow. Sometimes the grass grows quicker than the chickens can turn it into compost. When the grass is growing fast, I take the bag off and mulch it. Also, if I could change something about the design of my coop, I would make the roof overhang at the ends to block rain, because I'm not home to close that flap every time it rains.

    Thank you very much! I put a lot of thought into the design. I used pressure treated lumber, then primed and painted everything. As for the hinges, I believe I used stainless hinges. I even used corrosion resistant screws. I think this chicken coop will be around for a long time.
