    DAEMON RUNNING

    My coups:


    1. Chknshk #1

    I have previously posted schematics of the design, but since cleaned those up. It's 8x12 insulated with a 12x16 enclosed run. This coup has electricity with built in light to prolong laying season and regular outlets for water heaters/fans.
    Here is a video: VIDEO

    2. Chknshk #2
    It's a converted 8x10 shed, with hollow walls and lowered ceiling. It houses my quail & pheasants within cages. This coup has electricity with built in light to prolong laying season and regular outlets for water heaters/fans.
    No photos/videos yet

    3. Chknshk #3 aka. 'the summer home'
    Not yet built, but below is an image of the design. After having a learning experiance raising meat chickens in Chknshk #2 and having to constantly muck it out with a shovel, this design came into existance. It will be fully accesible to a tractor (Deere 2305) with a bucket, so that the smell & amonia concentration can be easily contained. Both sides will have a 'convertible roof' and a swinging gate for ease of cleaning and access.

    "An excellent concept that needs fleshing out"

    This would make a really good meat-bird pen, but it's hard for most people to get the big picture from schematics. Some pictures during and after the final build would go a long way!

    Plans are always a plus but would love more details and pictures of the build!
