Since we had no intention of raising yard decorations, we didn't have a place for them to live. We didn't want to put them in with the big girls because they are kinda grouchy with strangers. We kept the new birds separate to ensure they were healthy. Meanwhile, I started construction of the Banty Coop.
The coop is 4' x 4' x 4'. It is in a 5' x 10' run. I used the same fence that I used in the big chicken run .
I built this coop with ease of maintenance in mind.
I installed a light for heat and an electrical outlet because
I have two 2"x2" roosts along the back wall that can be removed, again for cleaning.
I still need to put vents, windows and nest boxes in. I'll update as I go along.
