Before And Ater

  1. Barred Rocker
    The first coop I built originally had a run with chicken netting with no top. After losing several hens and roosters one winter I decided it was time for reinforcment.

    This is the original run

    And now with heavier gauge wire and totally enclosed, predators can only stand outside looking in. I haven't lost a single bird yet.
