Coop de Crib...makeshift and perfectly functional =)
Construction is from baby crib $0, scrap pieces of OSB & plywood from past jobs, scrap pieces of dimensional lumber from past jobs (DH's job comes in super handy for my projects) Chicken Wire $3 worth & awning fabric $0 (from my broken RV awning). Total cost ~ $3.
This is the Coop de Crib. I don't know how well you can see but the back half of the crib was turned into the "house". The underneath is where the waterer & feeder is.
Maybe you can see it better this way...? That is the ramp covering most of the "door".
With the ramp down. Since this is for Seramas & they are pretty little...Hubby scored grooves (width of skilsaw blade) into the ramp, instead of attaching pieces of wood for leverage.
I had my doubts about this part, but it works like a charm.
This is looking through the "house" from the other end. On the right is the nesting box...of course they lay the eggs right in front of it. HA!
Since this was built at the shop, we covered it with chickenwire & hardware cloth when we got it home. For the arched ceiling, we covered it in a heavy piece of outdoor awning fabric.
I can add pictures of the completed coop later on...this is all I have for now.
