    This is my main coop I’ve had for about 7 years now: 7A9FEE5F-F587-4CB4-B1BE-3AF8C141F298.jpeg

    Last year I added a pen on the back of it for birds that needed to be separated or I was fixing to add to my flock


    This is my second coop I’m using for my ameraucanas I made out of our old shed.

    Nice coops. Can you include more details on the builds?

    This looks great! The conversion for the second coop is amazing! Can you add some details on how you went from woodshed to that great little coop and run? Some notes on how the roof turbo works for you on a small building would be helpful, too. I've been leery of adding one to my playhouse coop, for fear that there wasn't enough air movement to make it work.

      Thanks, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out although most of the inside is temporary. Both of the coops are essentially laid out the same with a ramp leading up to a platform with the roosts and boxes. My old coop the platform is enclosed and is vented under the roof overhang. On the shed coop since there was no roof overhang and no good place to vent it I didn’t enclose the platform. I’m planning on adding external nest boxes also to add floor space for a bigger roost but it works for now. If there’s anything in particular you want pictures of for ideas I’d be happy to help.
