My coop

    This is my elevated 12' x 16' coop with a 6' x 12' deck (with 3.5' x 4' landing). I built the coop 3.5' off the ground so as to not waste run space, provide shade in the brutal MS summers, and shelter from rain. The deck serves a dual purpose... an observation deck as well as providing shade. The interior is divided into 3 sections. The foyer is 4' x 12', which gives access to the front and rear interior pen doors as well as the nesting boxes. The front section is an 8' x 12' for young birds coming out of the growout pens. The rear section, 4' x 12') currently houses my breeding trio of HRIR. Due to the extremely rainy conditions at the time of build, I didn't use convention building methods... I built the roof first, then the floor and walls.

    I'll be adding pictures of the finished product as soon as I can locate them and get them uploaded.
    In the meantime, here's a walk-through video of the nearly completed coop.
