This is my coop. Built for aussie summers the whole front is completely open. The roosts are quite high so the girls will get a breeze in summer and the hot air rizing in winter. Not that our winters are very cold (I have never seen the snow) . My main materials are cement fibre sheeting, treated timber and aviary mesh. Dad and me built the coop and I designed and built the nest boxes myself. The roosts are made from old curtain rods. The roof is poly carb plastic roof sheeting. We bought most of the materials except the roosts and the paved floor. The owner of the house before us left a mass of bricks piled up against the shed and we ocasionally use them.
they prefer to lay under the old BBQ. And they range all day. They all live together and the coop is 1.2 metres by 3 meters, it is around 6 feet tall. we managed to build most of it one weekend and finished it the next Saturday. They all are living very happily in their coop. View attachment 1474624 View attachment 1474625 View attachment 1474672 View attachment 1474674 View attachment 1474621
