My chicken coop!

This is great! I wish I could say I only spent 10$ on mine, oh my lol. I will agree that you should put some bigger roosts in, You can sand down the edges of a 2x4 and put that in, have them perch on the wider part. I know how much work building a coop is, we have built 2! One 8'x16' and the other 4'x7'. Its a loooot of work!!! Great build and pictures!

if you look close there is 2 (2x4s painted white) and 3 broom handles that are for perching on. i'm just not good at taking pictures
Thanks for sharing your coop and showing others coops don't have to cost the equivalent of a 2nd home mortgage.
Great pics & a great reuse of found and leftover materials. You may want to put in some wider roosts (at least sideways 2X4s) but otherwise it's a great little set-up. Your budget-friendly coop is liable to get some people thinking about doing the same, so adding some how-to pointers would be a big help to someone wanting to attempt scrapping together something similar on their own. Very cool!

what do you mean by adding more roosts? the coop is 4 feet wide and i put old broom handles(4 of them) through the fence
i guess you cant see them from my pictures. I had to barrow a camera from a friend to take pics. I'm no photagrapher lol
