Finally! Mr. Cookies is so happy to get to use his power tools. I'm going to have to find more projects for him to do. This is based loosely on the minimal plan from the Building Chicken Coops for Dummies book. Very very loosely. Mr. Cookies already had a structure in the backyard that was set in concrete. So instead of trying to dig holes of the exact right depth to make the corner posts level, he just hacked off the top of his parallel bar assembly so that the corners were level. Base is 4'x8'. Tallest wall is 4 ft high. Lower side is 3 ft. Vents will be installed - in the triangle made by the roof and end walls. - under the eave on the tall wall - at the floor level on the short wall Roof will include 1 ft eave all the way around. Floor is vinyl from Home Depot. I wanted a cheap remnant, but the 48 cents per square foot stuff was just fine. The pop door will be on the tall side (right hand in the picture), which will be enclosed in the run. (Run design is TBA. I was going to incorporate the coop with the swing set, and make the A-frame part of the swing set form the frame of the run. But his decision to use the parallel bars as his base changes that. We'll see what happens.) The end facing the camera will have one large door for cleaning. The far end (the end near the house) will have the nesting boxes. I hope my chickens will like it! ETA: We'll also be using hurricane clips on the roof. Gotta be prepared, right?
