Describe 'Shannon's Homemade coop!' here
My mom and I built this coop from materials we picked up from our local recycling center (including the paint!) The entire thing cost less then $50 for us to build. Since the only purchases we made were the chicken wire, Old camper windows (which came from a junk yard), and of course the waterer and feeder. We are lucky to have a recycling center in our town where people drop of things they don't need/want like wood pieces, siding, used paint cans, roofing and so on, and then you can go and take what you want for free! Anyway its big enough to house 6 girls comfortably with an upper and lower portion.
The windows are the old style crank windows, and the back upper portion opens up with two doors for easy cleaning and egg collecting, and the outside portion opens up in two doors as well for easy cleaning and so you can get the chickens their food/water/treats without them all escaping into the yard threw your legs!
