Ok. I've been lurking for months and finally decided to join on this first day of owning chickens! Me and 2 of 3 kids went out and opened the coop for the first time. this morning and one of the chickens came down for a bit. As you can see, this is the cheapo ebay brand pawhut coop. I've made several modifications, I went through with a staple gun on the inside and reinforced the wire. Staples that were used on originally were pretty weak. Second, I mounted my PVC feeder in the coop. Then I modified the access door to provide more light. Thanks BYC for that idea! It also has a plexiglass insert to use for winter. I also added a pulley for a retractable ramp for added protection. I also reinforced the bottom with 1x4 treated lumber around the outside to stiffen up the frame a bit and allow me to mount some wheels. All in all, I've got about $300 in the coop. I'm pretty satisfied with that until I can get my 8x8 garden shed on the property and modified to accommodate the chickens. This is a temporary home for probably the next year or so. Then it might get turned into a brooder coop if I get brave enough to have a rooster and raise chicks!! Just before I shot the pic, the chicken was about halfway down the ramp when it stopped for about a 15 second stare down with the kids then she came on down to eat some grass! Buff Orpingons!
