Very complete and thorough article! Will definitely get DH to read it before building our new coop in March.

I love your appreciation for the rooster. I have two young cockerels who I want to have for a long time. Your patience with Fabio is inspiring!

Thanks for reading the article. I hope it helps.
My patience with Fabio runs thin some days... but he is just an amazing rooster for the flock so he stays. We have a guarded peace between us.
I have been looking at coops for many months and have not found any that I could look at without thinking of the changes I would make. I want windows....lots of natural light, "poop boards" to make cleaning quick and easy....and an area to isolate a chicken if needed. This coop is larger than I will be able to have....but looking at it is like looking at my "dream coop". I especially like the brooder room/run.... Beautiful....perfect for healthy, happy birds. Thank you for sharing.

Yes, but I at least get points for the warning at the beginning of the article...
So many good things to think about in your article and coop. I'll have to give my coop plans a little redesign now to incorporate some of your features.

Thank you so much for the review! You'd like my house then. I matched the coop color to my siding color.

Thank you!
and with an engineering degree, which explains my affinity for your style. I think that ceiling light is dubious and recommend a very utilitarian style, like Lithonia makes, which I once used.

Thank you, Tina!
I can't believe the transformation! I'm so excited to get started on mine. I really hope I can keep the cost quite a bit lower, but I just know things will come up that I didn't calculate in :oops: You really have given me some serious inspiration!!!!

My coop, run and flock are a lot bigger than yours. I'm sure you can keep the cost down!
Tip: If you decide to use shingles, I purchase the minimum amount to get the 20% bulk discount, then pay with my Lowe's card for another 5% off and then just pick up what I need, tell them I changed the plan and don't need the rest and get a refund for what I don't pick up!
WOW ! What a transformation.

Yes, it certainly was. I could not post samples of the before and after smell or I would have. That shed really was stinky when I began work!
While I love and think my coop and run is da bomb... and pretty perfect in every way.. yours makes me a bit envious :oops:... I really love it! And you didn’t miss a detail!

....are you a golfer?
Title of one of my favorite novels too.

Great article and build!

No, not a golfer. The ex was though and boy did he take a lot of mulligans! I thought it was appropriate.
Thanks for your review.
This was a lovely article to read and you're clear passionate about your hooks and your projects!
