DH has been working on the coop for weeks and now has it almost completed There are still some finishing touches needed - like the outside stairs and some paint! The coop is 8' x 8' and houses 6 hens for now. We live in the woods in a very rocky and hilly area. The back of the coop actually is resting on a rock about the size of a small car - it is much larger than the one the board (step) is resting on! We intalled electric & insulation for our cold PA winters. We put up 1/4" walls inside to cover the insulation and painted them to make cleaning easier. We also found 18" rubber floor tiles at our local "Restore Warehouse" for 5 cents each to cover/protect the wood floor. The old double pane insulated windows were $1. each from Restore too! The metal roof was left over from the installation of our pole building. We may have overdone the nest boxes - since we put in 8 boxes and only have 6 hens right now - at least they will have a choice! Here are the girls enjoying their freedom.
