    How to install hardware cloth?

    I also used a air gun and 1 inch crown staples to put mine on. I then covered the wire with 4 inch wide boards to hide the seams.

    Barred Rock Hen

    She is my top hen in the pecking order and needs a new home. She lays an average of every other day and sometimes more. She is about 10 months old and a great hen but does not get along with the newbies to the flock. I would love to see her go to a new home. I can also deliver to the Portland...

    Coop Walls

    I agree with this post. But I used OSB for the intrerior of my walls with plywood on the exterior only. I just put a few good coats of paint on it and it has held up really well. If you build a good coop the walls should not get wet on the inside. I did use 3/4 ply on the floor and caulked all...

    Urban Coop

    Quote: Dimensions of the enclosed run and coop are 5'x12' and the coop itself is 5'x4'. Outside run is about 25'x15' overall. Total number of birds is 6. Thanks for all the replys I do love the coop but if I had it to do over would probably go another rout with a bigger coop.

    Urban Coop

    Quote: Thanks! I built it myself. I have done metal work all my life but have been around construction also. It took me about 3 hours to build at my shop and then a few at home to get it to rust. I really like it and can not wait for the little ones to get bigger so I can take the wire down.

    Quote: Not trying to be rude but have you dealt with a peanut allergy? Like I posted earlier in this thread I have a son who is allergic to peanuts.

    hard to install automatic chicken door opener?

    If you follow the directio9n it is simple. I did not have enough room in coop to put it directly above the door so I just screwed a eyebolt right above the door and ran the opener to one side of the eyebolt. Adjusted everything and it was done. Great product for the money.
