Revell Coop

    The coop is 10x12 and well insulated. The pen is 8x12, we wish we would have made it larger.
    When my husband asked if I wanted a red metal roof, there was only one answer. Hell yes.

    Then he asked if I wanted a porch. Yes, yes, yes!
    The pen wire is hardware cloth with galvanized metal lath wire dug down two feet. Nothing is digging under that.

    We're (we means hubby) swapping the screen in the door with hardware cloth.

    The coop has 4 screened windows to let fresh air in. Our mutt Pete on guard for opportunities to sneak into the pen to eat chicken treats and poop. He's been banished from the pen.

    The coop is not heated nor is there light. My husband asked if I wanted it but my mother, grandmothers and all the other farm ladies had unheated coops and their chickens did just fine. So are mine. They grow a nice thick set of feathers. The lack of light causes them to stop laying but it's a nice break for them.

    The chickens free range and love to go to the pond for a drink and to nibble on new greens in the spring.

    Poop boards with straw on them to make for easier cleaning. I eventually abandoned that.

    Four nesting boxes for 3 hens but they prefer to use just one.

    A little outdoor roost for Clemetine, Hetty, Veronica and Elvis.
