I got the brilliant idea of building a coop this summer! Having no carpentry or chicken experience, my husband chuckled. I figured I could do it in a weekend but I spent every weekend and evening for 3 months. The husband was impressed and so am I actually!
I went into it knowing I wanted a hutch style coop for silkie chickens. It is fully insulated 4 x 8 hutch with a hardware cloth 12 x 12 hardware cloth enclosed run. There is full electrical with 2 outlets inside, a bathroom ceiling fan for ventillation & an outside light. In our harsh Canadian prairie winter, the run is enclosed in poly to break the wind & snow.
I hope you like it!
