    CURRENTLY ON HOLD FOR TASTESLIKECHICKEN - WILL UPDATE

    We have moved our babies into the new barn/workshop I've been building.
    This leaves our first coop available for sale, trade, etc...

    Details:
    Coop started as a tractor but grew during construction.
    I spent a lot on materials and several days to build it.
    It's 4 months old.
    Needs shingles + paint. I have tar paper for roof but it's
    not on yet.
    I stole the egg box off it for my new chickuarium.

    It has two levels but can be three if you put it on blocks like the pics.

    The roof is removable for easy moving.

    It has wheels

    Size is 4 x 7.
    It can be carried on the back of a pickup truck. I have a little pickup
    so we can arrange something.

    Pricing: Who cares. I'd love to help out a fellow chicken person.
    If your loaded you can make a donation to a good charity. If your
    not loaded you can just send me a picture of your happy chickens
    inside it. I would also accept an extra incubator, eggs, hen, good story,
    bag of scratch. You get my point.

    The only pic I have.(from yesterday)

    The chickuarium is a 3x12' section along the back wall. Everything is still
    "in progress". I'll post more pics later. Gonna work on it this weekend.
    Thanks for asking. [​IMG]

    Just saw this today and LOVE it. Where abouts in CT are you? I am in South Eastern CT near the shore. Would love to take a look if it would work out.

    My new standards-who I ordered with another member on here and are now about 12 weeks old- would enjoy the extra space. Plus, am hoping for a few more fancies to arrive soon.

    I'm in Beacon Falls, off of Route 42 and 8.

    We are 1.5 hours from New London. I travel to Killingworth,
    Clinton, and Old Saybrook often.

    The coop held a LOT (36) of young birds and then my 16 current
    20 week olds were living comfortably in it. 8 standards or 16
    silkie/bantams would fit comfortably.
