My Kozy Koop!

    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!

    Simply gorgeous. I cannot you believe you had no carpentry experience, because this coop looks like it has better finishes than our house! Major kudos.

    Totally love your coop. Great job. I have a rabbit hutch I made into a chicken hutch. Around that I have chain link fence, 10 ft by 16 ft. Also have another hutch in there for the egg nesting area. Then it was windy & chilly, so I hung clear plastic shower curtain liners over the chain link fence. Zip tied at the top in the shower hook loops. Keeps the wind out. I also can see in there to see if any other critters get in. Also have hardware cloth part way up the chain link fence, and tarp over the whole top. I am a red neck wife my husband says. Zip ties and duck tape are my favorite tools. Next year hope to build a bigger coop inside. Love yours........
