The coop was built faciing south on 4x4's sunk into the ground and concreted in place. It measures 4x8x4 and is 2 foot off the ground. This coop is going nowhere.
The front has 2 windows that open made from a recycled truck camper shell.
The chicken run will be 12 foot long, made with angle iron, and attached to the front of the coop with the bottom screened off for easy shade/rain protection.
There is a 6 inch tall access door across the bottom for easy egg retrieval from the 5 nesting boxes.
The interior is accessed from a large door on the east side.
A "trap door" that removes for easy cleaning.
5 nesting boxes
Poop board for PDZ
Roosting perch above poop board
Still to be done:
- Battens need to be attached
- Coop needs to be painted - red to match the other outbuildings
- Bottom needs to be wired off
- Run needs to be built & attached.
Still trying to decide if I want sand on the inside or wood chips; the floor can handle either. We have access to free riversand so will use that for the run.
