    F6A876B3-9CE7-4EC7-979B-EC2E0091446F.jpeg Last summer (2017) we expanded and built a 8’x 12’ coop. It took three days to complete and a few more to assessorize. We love it. The first year was great, we didn’t lose any chickens to predators. We have now expanded to 25 chickens and a rooster. We now use the original coop to raise chicks and relocate broody chickens.

    Looks like a good coop for those Connecticut winters. Do you have photos of the inside you could share?

    We need those measurements and more pictures.

    It looks good but without more details its really hard for folks to pull info for their build together.

    Open and airy, but still looks tight for those northeastern winters. VERY nice work!
