    Floating island ideas

    I built a floating island for the waterfowl to be protected from predators. And it has worked like a charm. It is made out of corrugated plastic drain pipe filled with plastic bottles from the recycling center and held together with heavy duty plastic hardware fencing material and zip ties. I’ve...

    Hello, I currently have backyard chickens but will be moving to a bigger piece of land. I am wanting a coop for about 20 chickens, and a greenhouse. My question is can/do you combine the two? Or is better to have two different structures? Pros? Cons? Anyone with experience or insight I would...

    Our chicken coop project...

    The Coop It started with an idea to have a chicken coop. I just needed to figure out where. One night while looking over my options in our yard, I realized I had never gone on the other side of the fence on one corner of my property. Yes, it seems hard to believe after living at our new place...

    The Chicken Coop D'État!

    How Chickens Conquered This Backyard The method of the chicken infiltration was simple, patient, and very effective. They had a powerful ally in my wife who argued convincingly, "I want chickens." And thus began the year long attrition of this backyard to the commandeering force of backyard...

    I bought 6 chickens on April Fools Day...then built a coop.

    I had been interested in raising layers for a while and found the info on this site very useful. I'm sharing what I did to build a run and coop in case it might be useful to anyone else trying this for the first time like myself. And of course, being a newbie, I welcome any suggestions and...

    Apologies for the blurry photo...it will be replaced when I find my camera downloading thingie! This coop design started with the idea that we needed rain shelter for our goats, and if we were building a roof anyway, we might as well raise it by a couple of feet and make it a...

    Missouri Napoleon (Revolution)

    Missouri Napoleon (Revolution) Here's a design for about 10 birds with easy access to the laying boxes for me and to the run as well as outside for the chickens. Tried to take the best of others' designs - originality is dead/why reinvent the wheel? - and suit them to my needs, wants and...

    KI4GOT's Small "Hoop Coop" 04.23.2011 Getting back into chickens again, I decided to plan it out a bit more than the first time around... Tractor Supply had a neat idea on their website of using a dog house, a few other people have/had 'hoop coops' I liked. My large coop I plan to do "My Way"...

    Cloggingchickens Chicken Coop

    Orpington Palace We designed our chicken coop with future in mind. We wanted it to be able to work as a shed if we should ever move or give up chickens, as a result I get to hear about how expensive and overdone the floor and supports are. I searched through probably hundreds of coops online and...

    The Reedy Chicken Coop I have always wanted chickens. I am not sure why. I have never had chickens, and am not sure if I have ever touched a chicken that still had its feathers. I just know I always wanted chickens. My lovely wife was not so thrilled about the idea, but I figured she would...
