I think you did a wonderful job on the coop. Like you, I'm all for recycle & reuse stuff if at all possible. We have ours in an unused horse stall. I like the way that you have the clean-out under the roosts and the nest box setup. If I were to build a new coop, I would consider both. The picket fence gives it a nice look, too.

Amazing! What is the breed in there that looks like almost a buff ameraucana or Easter egger with the feathered feet? Is it a Faverolles?

yep.... Faverolles... they’re ”wheaten” in color, as far as the hobby name for that colorization ...there are other breeds that come in ‘wheaten’ too

Thanks for the kind comments!
Great pictures, and descriptions. A great coop, and a really great article.

I love the story behind your coop! You did a terrific job with the additions and it is heart warming to know how many generations and pets have been cared for there. Very nice!
While I enjoyed reading about the provenance of the building and it’s updates, I think the best part was the continuing story - I really loved that you kept updating the article to include both the good and bad things about it through the seasons.
This is the type of practical information that people really need to build or develop a coop. Well done!
Oh and ps that rusty roof is to die for!

Thanks! ... btw, I saw you were from Thunder Bay... I fished eagle lake and it’s surrounding portage lakes for several years in the past, it’s very pretty up there... I’d like to back up that way.

What a great built! That looks like the »Happy Chicken Inn« hotel. I love the exterior look, it looks like a saloon from an old western city. I wish something like that would work for my ducks. Maybe i should steal your ideas and then tell my wife "Now that we have this beautiful coop, we just need some chickens"? As a chicken, i would want to live in such a stylish and safe home!
I'm about to start my lean to project. Thanks for sharing I'm going to steal your roost design. Great job overall.
Lots of great pictures and schematics, and plenty of how and whys.
I loved reading and seeing the making of your coop and run. So many well thought out ideas and plans, the pictures were helpful. It is clear to me that your chickens are happy and well cared for. Thank you for sharing this.
Fantastic coop! Well done!
I love rustic! You have done a great job putting It all together for your chickens
Article very well done, I especially love seeing updates after practical use! Your pics and drawings will be very useful for others.
Chicks are beautiful and look happy, so great job!
