    Gorgeous! Would love to see the inside. Since you have two enclosures, can you isolate the run if needed?

    Temporary quarantine enclosure - easy to disassemble for storage

    My last attempt at integrating new birds into my flock did not go well. This time I have a temporary enclosure for the new birds within sight vision of the main enclosure. The design goals were: Use up as much scrap material in the junk pile. Easy to disassemble for storage when not in use. I...

    For years, mine left the agapanthus leaves alone, but ate the flowers. This year they decided to start mowing down the leaves too :-(. Irises (and bulbs) were gone the first year. The plants they haven't touched are rosemary and rock roses (cistus).

    Thanks. They look like your basic barred rock :-). I'm almost at 25 weeks and still waiting for eggs. I'll post a new photo when they finally start earning their keep.

    Umm, we really do wear the glasses. I wasn't joking when I said I got pecked in the eye. I was really lucky that it was only a nasty scratch on the cornea. It was two weeks before I had my vision back to normal.

    Thanks. It took about 3 months, though there were a few breaks in there. I wasn't in a rush because I knew that we couldn't get the chicks until Labor day and all summer travel would be done. I guess if I had ignored my family I could have built it one month.

    Thanks applefalls & Stumpy. I'm really afraid of power saws, so I've been using a hand backsaw. At least I'm ok with the power drill for driving the screws.

    Now that there are actually chickens living in the coop, I thought it was time to add some new photos. This was mostly completed early July 2012. The photo below was taken Jan 2013. Footprint is 6' x 10', and the enclosed section is 3' x 6'. 7ft tall at the front, 6ft at the back. I had some...

    The link was broken, but I searched by name and figured out which design you mentioned. That was the other one I had bookmarked!

    Wow, that's a really nice looking coop. Did you make your own plans, or is this based on one in a book or online. What's the overall size?
