Missis Chicken Coop

  1. Barred Babies
    Hi, I'm Missi from Pride, La. I've been involved with chickens since 09' and have enjoyed every minute of it. Since I've started I've enlarged my coop, added 2 grow out sections on it and have gone from having a few to having a whole lot!! It's just so addicting!! [​IMG]
    This is the coop/run when we started.
    The coop is 16ft x 5ft and the run is 16ft x 16ft.

    This is after one of the additions.
    We added a 8ft x 8ft "nursery" section. The coop is 4ft x 4ft.
    This is after we added to the run.
    We added 16ft x 16ft to it.
    Then I added another grown out section to it!
    I added another 8ft x 8ft section to it.
    I think we're done for now! [​IMG]
    Ahhhh.... Never say never!! [​IMG]
    So after I almost had my run structure completly colapsed from trying to cover it with a tarp and forgetting to cut slits in it we had to fix it. And in doing so I was able to seperate one section into 2 so I now have 3 complete seperate sections to house my different breeds!!

    This is how nice it was when we covered it. Made such a difference in there to help with the 100+ temps we were having.


    It was a total mess.

    We went in an braced it and bought shade cloths from Ace Hardware to help with the heat!

    Had to make a new coop for them.
    And here it is completed!! NOW I think we're finished until we build out new coop!! [​IMG]
