Circular Coop

    I designed and built this circular coop for my six chicks. It is five feet in diameter with two windows, one "people door", and three nesting boxes (accessible from a door on the back). It has a pop door in the floor with a ramp leading to the underside of the coop, where they will be very safe from predators if I happen to be away for the day. The hardware cloth on the walls is buried about a foot out and away from the coop. I also poured concrete in the trench. Take that foxes and raccoons! I'm currently working on a 5'x10' moveable run to give them more space to play.

    Was really interested in reading how a circular coop was built but this article only shows the final coop. It would be nice to see actual build pictures, some photos of the interior and a cost estimate for the project.

    "Interior pics?"

    The coop looks lovely, but the article needs pictures of the build, the plans, materials used, interior pics while in use, etc. This coop is unique and needs to be showcased more in the article.

    Another GREAT idea .Why NOT concrete in the trench rather than wire?Way cheaper and less work and certainly impermiable.

    Impressive and visually appealing design. Did you use cedar? What was the cost of the materials? do you have interior pics? Congrats!
