Kennel Coop

    We initially had a 10 x 10 chain link dog kennel and bought one of those pipe roofs with tarp cover that the hens could go in but the first winter the tarp tore and now each winter we put on a new industrial tarp to keep it covered as well as a support beam in the middle of the kennel. We have also put tarps all around so it's protected in winter. In summer we roll up the tarps to let fresh air blow through. Inside is a hen house, a rack of hen nest boxes, storage for chicken stuff and a huge parrot cage. In winter I put hay on the floor and bed it deep. It works well and isn't too messy to clean come spring.

    With just one picture and a very brief description, it's difficult to tell much about this set up.

    This coop is interesting because it's simple and (with the exception of having to replace tarps) not costly. I would like to know more about roost, dimensions and feeder locations. Maybe someone else may find that this is what they want to do. So it'd be nice to have some more pictures and details about what you would change and what you don't like about your set up. The coop itself may deserve a higher rating but the details here are missing. Do you have predators where you are?

    Needs pictures and more of an explanation of how someone else can make it work for them.
