Coop on a stick

  1. vtschritter
    I have wanted chickens for several years and now we finally did it.
    My husband and I made this chicken coop based off of the one from Reinventing The Chicken Coop. We made a few changes and are really enjoying it. The coop is very aesthetically pleasing. It also did not break the bank! We roughly have $150 into it.
    The foot print is 4'x5' and currently houses 3 ladies with lots of room!

    Most of the siding is done. A local hardware shop had cedar boards for 79 cents each.

    Front is held on with bolts and wing nuts . It easily comes off for cleaning.

    The fence is currently temporary. While the dog is adjusting. As of today we have had the girls for 1 week. They get to roam the backyard while I am home. There is a run in the fure tho.

    Very unique and very cool. I like the wrap around stairs. Do they stay in that fenced part below the coop?
