Ft. Knoxville (city dwellers)

  1. 2karen22
    Well, after losing two chickens to ugly possums, we decided to build our Ft. Knoxville. Since we are permitted to have three chickens we decided to build for at least 4 or 5 chickens (snicker).
    It doesn't have a formal nesting box yet because in the previous coop Gretta Van Sustern (not Susteren) decided her little chicken a** should sleep in the nesting box not the roost.
    I like this design. It has two large doors. One door for cleaning the coop or gather the future eggs and one below to replenish the food and water. It also has a door big enough to be full size adult functional.

    Hardware cloth 1/2" is predator proof ...chicken wire isn't.
