    Chicken Coop Designs
    I built a new chicken coop because the old one was in a horrible place and looks terrible .
    it's in a triangle shape that's useful for snowy areas snow will easily fall off
    when we started building it we took a lot of wood for the bottom, 3
    horizontal 3 vertical then a square frame. The skeleton consists of
    triangles made out of 2 cut pieces then everything is covered with
    planks. One of it's features is the mesh floor floor. Sometimes the
    chunks of chicken poop gets stuck but the poop that doesn't get stuck
    gets diced and is good for composting. Meshed floor costs less than
    wood and is easy to clean just use water. Soon to be installed an
    automatic door.


    That's my chicken coop summary.

    Looks like there is a human door next to the chicken door...so humans walk on that wire mesh floor also? I would think that would weaken the mesh.

    I like this coop but I would either take the wire out or put another type flooring down. It would be nice to have dimensions or 'how to' of this because it is a fine looking coop.

    Wire really is not good for their feet. Wire with bedding on it is often used to aerate a deep litter, but not typically just straight wire. I especially would not advise no bedding in cold climates. You have to add carbon to compost at some point, might as well be at the stage the chickens see it. It can also cause damage to their feet.

    I like it. Simple, functional, easy on the eyes. =)
