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.
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 coop.
A couple of used windows from the local restore. I put these in backwards so they could be opened from the out side.
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 coop.
I used soffit vents to cover the vent holes but have since replaced with expanded metal.
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 boxes.
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 that.
I designed the ramp to fold up and lock over the pop door so it cannot be pushed open from the outside.
Ive got some chix in a brooder inside the coop as well as some older chix in the coop. you can also see the inside of the pop door here
