    SUNSET CHICKEN COOP
    [​IMG]O


    Scott and I built our first chicken coop stared May 2010 finished mid July 2010 in Northern California. The coop is 4x8' with a 3x4' hen house and a 4x8' covered run. It was built to house three chickens. It was put in the corner of the property to blend in with the landscaping. A big thanks goes to my friend Scott A a plumber by trade to help me build my first coop. (There is no running water in the coop.) Also Al P for the Hens. Many thanks go to BYC for great ideas on how to build a chicken coop.

    Lots of pictures, just not enough info.

    We really need those details. An experienced builder could do it from the pictures but a new person really needs dimensions.

    Your coop looks very nice and well constructed.

    However, we have no idea how exactly it was made. I do like that you included your cost, but again, we don't know what that $ was spent on, or how to put it all together.
