First up is the run, pretty straightforward...nothing to see here Dirt floor, and I've bee using a semi deep litter method. Adding straw, pine needles, pine shavings, mulch, whatever I have access to at the moment when it seems to need a new layer. I have a stacked and buried rock apron around most of it, but still trying to figure out something for the front with the gate. Also, I will likely be adding hardware cloth to the bottom half of the run as temperatures get cooler and predators get hungrier. So far, the worst we've had to deal with were a few baby skunks. They were after the feed, and since then I've taken the feed out of the coop seeing as my birds are only in it to sleep anyways. No more signs of intruders since then.
So, our coop is a repurposed play fort, made of 3 walls of privacy fence, against our fence (making up the 4th wall). Here is where the run and coop are attached. I would really love to add a pop door or even an automatic door here in the future.
This is the girls nesting area, through the door and to the right. They are only using the three boxes that are straight ahead so far, so really I could take the rest out. I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, my duck will decide the galvanized tub looks like a good place to lay. That's the reason that it is partially buried in the ground.
Another picture of the outside, you can see there's a window that I can close at night, or colder temperatures. For now, I have one chicken that seems to enjoy sleeping on the roost level with this window and enjoying our summer nights here in southwest Virginia. The bird house at the top was occupied this spring by a family of swallows when we started the playhouse to coop conversion, but now that it's empty I am planning on taking that down and relocating it.
