Serenity Garden Coop (Witchita Cabin knockoff)

  1. candyNflowers
    My husband built this medium coop with run with recycled plywood to save money but it still cost more to make than we intended but we are very happy with it. He found a sign when he bought the recycled plywood that said Serenity Garden in a pretty script so we put that on the coop. the run, including coop is about 6x8 ft. My kids like it so much that they have been treating it like a playhouse but the chickens will move into the coop soon, they are already testing out the run but its been cold at night and not all of our four chickens are fully feathered yet. I got the ideas from all the great coops on here and showed pictures to my husband and told him what I wanted and he made it for me. thanks for looking, lisa
