Mini Chicken Barn

    This was my first chicken coop design and build for my wife's new 12 Golden Comet chickens back in the summer of 2013. I call it the Mini Chicken Barn. The coop is 4 by 8 feet, the run is 8 by 10 feet, plus the 4 by 8 feet under the coop. It is about a total of 7 feet tall. Most of the wood I purchased at Home Depot from their 70% off cull rack. I originally used chicken wire for the run, but later purchased from Tractor Supply a 4 foot tall roll of 14 gauge 2 by 4 wire fencing that I added over the chicken wire for more secure protection for the chickens. For the other coops that I have built since then, I don't use any chicken wire only the 14 gauge 2 by 4 wire fencing. We use a tarp system for the run that we can roll up or down, depending on the weather conditions and shade needs. In the winter we use clear tarps. We fell in love with these chickens and since added 2 more coops. One for our Barred Rocks and one for our turkeys. Plus we now have Nigerian Dwarf Goats.
