Old west store

    My neighbor had some left over wood from a project so I got it at a discount price and had a dream. I left the main floor of the coop 5" lower than the porch for a deep litter coop.

    The wall is 12' high. The old coop is in the background. Its 4'X8' and about 8' tall.

    I started in the spring but due to work and life in general, it got put on hold for a couple of months.

    The outside is finished in rough cut pine. I have a friend with a saw mill.

    The tin was donated from a neighbor. They all feed the chickens table scraps and help eat the eggs.

    It is still in progress but basically done. I'm not sure if I will finish out the inside or not. I do still need to add electric. It is hard to see but I made the chicken door in the shape of an egg.

    There are 6 laying boxes, 3 per side. Two runs for roost with poop board. And a ladder.
