My 12x12 coop we built last year. What do you think?
I think it looks great. Do you access the nest from the outside for egg collection or do you get them from inside the coop? How many chickens do you keep in there?
Very nice. I love the color.
Gets eggs from inside. I keep 26 chickens right now. I have room for another 20. 10 nest boxes. Isolation breeding cage with 2 additional nesting boxes. 150 lb feed box on door. 55 gallon water nipple system on outside. Poop deck under roosts. Painted inside with 10 gallons of semigloss. Deep liter method on concrete floors.
Thanks my house backs into forest land, did not want it to stick out.
Foundation was hard since it was on a hillside.
Any further thoughts?
Nice building, love the wide overhangs!
Good for 26....I would not add 20 more.
What are we seeing thru the window to the right of the door?
What so you have for ventilation?
What is your location?
Size of run....or free range?
Ventilation under eaves, both sides.
Isolation cage, 150lb feeder box.
Run and free range when grass is high.
10 nesting boxes.
Looks great I love the color and the scenery, but I would only keep 36 not 46 (a 12 X12 has 144 of indoor area divided by 4 is 25 for the hundred and 11 for the 44 so 36) the maximum capacity of a coop should be stopped at 4 sq. ft. per bird any more(any more birds/any less room) and you end up with feather picking issues
