    Pictures of my 20x20 Araucana coop. Only have Pure Breed Araucana's living in it. Coop was mainly built out of recycled wood and fence from Craigslist. The tin and 4x4's were purchased new and a few hinges and hangers. Laying boxes where purchase off Craigslist also. Wish I had purchased more of them the guy had over 50 of them for sale at the time when I purchased them. He sold all of them very quickly. Each side is 10 x 20 with have 1/2 covered and 1/2 opened with wire on top. Both sides are almost just alike. Added an auto water system and a buried a 1 foot section of wire all the away around the pen and covered it with pea gravel to deter predators. Each side has lights that are on a timer so as to come on early at 4 am and go off at 11 pm.

    Check out the pictures and let me know what you think. Picture heavy!!

    The tray under the feed is a thick plastic potted plant bottom. I think it is a 22" bottom. It is held on to the bottom of the feeder by 4 bolts.
