My First Coop 1

    [​IMG] My coop started from a vacant horse stall.

    [​IMG] We start adding walls onto the existing poles.

    [​IMG] The laying boxes will be accessed from the outside with a flip up door.

    [​IMG] This is the cleanout door. You can see part of the roost on the inside.

    [​IMG] This is the same side with both doors closed and one window open.

    [​IMG] A front view.

    [​IMG] The other side view shows the laying boxes.

    [​IMG] The inside floor is covered with recycled conveyor belts. They are stapled about 6" up the walls to help keep pedators out. The string hanging is for the light.
    [​IMG] Now for the residents.

    Good job converting/modifying this stall into a nice coop.
