Coop is actually 4×8.
I built this coop with very little experience and with zero chicken Knowledge prior to my research here at BYC. I think i read almost every blog on here and sorted through tons of info but I believe I have collected some of the best ideas as well as adding a few of my own
First the run was made out of 8 5x5 welded wire metal dog kennel panels and a woden top a friend had made with the intentions of turning the kennel into a green house.
The coop was built on 4x4 posts with a 4x8 base and 8 ft tall frame
I used laminated tiles for the floor
on the back wall under the nest boxes i made the bottom wall removable for easy clean out of the entire coopfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-210400/I%25i4eTtQRGe6cvq8ii64MA/IMG_5826.jpg
couple of used windows from the local restore. I put these in backwards so they could be opened from the out side.file:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-210400/I2ZztS7wRB2hNY6NkjzdBg/IMG_5831.jpg
A small door in the back next to the nest boxes is nice for giving them fresh food n water without having to go thru the run or coopfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-210400/yWlu9kRASNemWYLMR2UMOw/IMG_5833.jpg
I used soffit vents to cover the vent holes but have since replaced with expanded metalfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-210400/RtDL0TxSQIqfET8tw4pJVw/IMG_5799.jpg
I originally wanted to put in 4 individual nest boxes but opted to cover the 2 ends as to give a darker more private and spacious nesting area the original four are now split into 2 larger boxesfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Masters/2014/07/27/20140727-210400/IMG_5841.JPG
roof vent wired for possible fan?
The pop door is rigged to a pulley system that is operated from the back door. ill try to post better pics of thatfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-212212/VJM5s7HqTk+tpNM%25D49vmA/20140724_172208.jpg
I designed the ramp to fold up and lock over the pop door so it cannot be pushed open from the outside.file:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-212212/lBT3PCijRKuWTUWXwv6pzw/20140724_172524.jpgfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Masters/2014/07/27/20140727-212212/20140727_143056.jpgfile:///Users/punx57/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Previews/2014/07/27/20140727-212212/pAmI7nlUQUWhSq%258yDxS2A/20140724_172607.jpg
