Tree House Chicken Coop

    Hi All,
    We looked for coop designs and couldn't find anything that wouldn't take up a lot of space, so we used our existing tree house. My husband , bless him, is good at honey do projects and this was no exception. We screened in the bottom of the tree house with hardware cloth, he made the door, and built the coop under the ramp to get to the tree house. We have a door to get into the coop to clean and also 5 eggs boxes, which I keep two blocked off as it is a bit too many. We have installed perches inside and a window to allow ventilation, especially in the summer. The egg boxes have a separate entry as well. We have wired so that they have an infrared light for the winter and a warmer for their water bowl, which I still need to install. They have a small doggie door to get into the coop and that I can close when it is very cold out to help keep them warm. Melissa
