The Barred Rock Inn

    I borrowed the idea of the coop from the Five Hens Coop. I modified it to fit our needs. It has about 45 sq ft of living space inside with two interior branch roosts. Three feeders (one for oyster shell & two for feed) were selected from Stromberg's. The three small metal feeders mount on the clean-out door and makes it easy to feed them. A hanging, gal. size waterer provides fresh H2O. There are four nest boxes on the side. They seem very happy once they adjusted to the move a couple of weeks ago.
    The run provides them with 11' x 10' ft of space. I added three sheets of PVC roofing to provide shade and keep them dry. My plan is to put sand under the covered portion of the run.
