Coop 2006-2009 WARNING: LOTS OF PICS!

Discussion in 'Coop & Run - Design, Construction, & Maintenance' started by Rare Feathers Farm, Oct 6, 2009.

  1. Okay...so here are some of the progression photos of my coop. It's still not done--so I'll have to keep adding to this page as I go...

    November 2005, the future spot of the coop:

    The coop was previously 8'x8' and split down the middle inside & out. One side housed my Brahmas, the other my Muscovies.

    One of the two vents on the East & West wall. Larger than they look and they can be closed, if needed:

  9. I have since finished caulking the cracks, we have four large fowl pens done, all of the runs 75% done (still need to add covers before birds go out), one of the bantam pens is completed. Oh and I painted a lot of the inside.
