    Here are some pictures of a small coop I made for a friend of mine,
    currently in use as my temporary grow out pen.
    It's made from an old saw horse I found on a garbage pile of a construction site:
    and pieces of left over wood, tar paper and chicken wire.
    I finished it with some old woodshingles from a demolished house.
    I raised it a few feet for predators and its closable with a pull string pop door.
    I ran out of chicken wire, but ideally I'd make the area underneath the coop
    part of the run.
    It can open on the side for easy cleaning
    I have been using sand for the last year, it keeps everything pretty clean in this climate.
    I just scoop the poop out in the morning.

    Nest box made from an old speaker box. Its for future use.

    Outside access to nestbox

    Thats a golf ball


    When it rains or when its too sunny I put some tatch on the run.

    Comfy Millies in hot bahamian sun.

    Thanks for watching.
