Uglywon's Coop

By uglywon · May 9, 2013 · ·

    I am a newbie. I've been wanting chickens for some time. My wife had one condition if I built a coop...that it be 'cute.' I like to build stuff and just finished up a two story garage and needed another project. I cannot say it is an original design since I borrowed ideas from many different coops built by other folks. This weekend I'm installing an automatic door. And, hopefully a functional cupola soon. The gang seems very pleased.







    Fabio keeping watch.

    You did exactly what she specified. It's cute as can be. More info needed for more stars.

    We need details on size though. I have seen this design a few times and no one puts measurements.
    I would also like to see inside the cabinet.

    I think you went beyond 'cute' I need to build one for my goslings but I'm not a good of a carpenter.
