Our Chicken Coop Goes Through Changes
Our 1st coop .4 foot x 4 foot
Next we added a permanent run with a partial roof on top over the raised coop
Snow came in the part that wasnt covered with roof ...it did have a tarp over it ..which had to be cleaned off ..
so it didnt collapse.it wasnt totally inclosed so it didnt keep heat in and melt the snow off like a hoop coop does
Nesting boxes were in the run
the next year we decided to put a roof on the whole run
we added boards on the sides and the run became our coop
the old coop became our hen house / nesting boxes
We split the coop /run into 2 sections
Baby coop on the left ,,Adult Section on the right
For the winter the coop gets plastic on the outside and all the chickens will go in the adult coop .
The Baby coop is lined with plastic too and becomes bed storage for the winter
This is our coop now - baby coop on the left , then adult coop then hen house inside the adult coop
I hope this gives people ideas as how they can work with what they have & Grow the coop too
