"The EGG Pad"

  1. firstimecluckin
    First off I would like to thank the entire community for all of the information and suggestions that are out there!
    I would also like to say “thanks” to all of the previous coop designers I stole ideas from – I think every coop on backyard chickens is great – they take a lot of work, planning, and sometimes $$$.

    Here are some assembly photos – total cost was about $300, down to the last screw – has low pressure watering system with cups (my meat birds loved them in their tractor so I used them here as well), drop-down entrance with chain to raise and secure, peek-in window, hanging feeder (that can be removed evenings), dual egg boxes (we only have 4 hens, but should be enough for up to 8), completely screened in, adjustable wheels for moving, skylight, and roosts!

    Girls took a little while to acclimate, but by 2nd day came running down the ramp to get the grass!

    Special Thank You to “On Golden Coop” – your plan sparked my design!!!

    Hope you enjoy!
