    Easy and cheap to build. The coop is great for after the birds are feathered out ,but are still small enough to fall prey to hawks. Out of the brooder and in to the hoop coop. The coop can be moved all over the grass so they get fresh greens.[​IMG]
    The view can be adjusted by rolling back the tarp.
    You need the following;
    2 treated 2x6x16
    6 2x2x8 pine or treated
    3 treated 8' landscape timbers
    4 4x16 foot livestock panels
    1 roll chicken wire
    door hardware
    It is 8Wx16Lx7Tall
    You can lag bolt your frame together after assembled for extra strength. This will allow you to add 2 eye bolts to the front so you can drag around with a cable hooked over your trailer hitch. We also use the dog kennels as coops and load them up with laying boxes.

    Nice list of what you need but no details of how to do it.

    It doesn't show how to make one but it is a nice example of one.
