My Coop 12

    I started with a dog kennel 6X6 and added a top. It works great!


    The dog kennel is 4 feet high, I added the 2.5' roof.

    Our Chickens love to perch.

    I put my food and water on a cinder block to keep the grass and dirt out of it. The babies use the stick that is on an angle to eat and drink.

    Our baby chicks drink from our "DRIP LINE FED" feeder that sits on a cinder block.

    "Basic fair weather shelter"

    A basic shelter which is most suitable for locations that do not experience cold winters. It is more of a shelter than a coop, which is okay depending on one's needs. Not recommended for regions that experience predators as many species could breach this coop or reach in to cause harm/death to the birds inside.

    Easy to see how you did this. Maybe seems a bit small for the amount of birds you have, but maybe they get to free range now and again.
