Let me know what u think on my idea
It looks very nice. I assume your using the rain water back to nipples or less lugging of water which is a cool idea. One thing is your run may want to be taller. From my experience it's just a pain when you have to grab a chicken or do any kind of maintenance in the run bent over or on your knees.
For construction of coop, your overall design is just like Purina's coop. Here is a link to the materials and construction to aid you.
Thanks for the info. I wonder what would it cost to make a coop like this or the purina
Very nice sketch...is it to scale? I see no dimensions.
Agrees on taller run, but I'm old and don't like to crawl thru chicken poop....or crawl anywhere for that matter....lol.
Let's say 4' x 8' x 8' coop and 8' x 8' x 8' run and all new materials with 1/2" hardware cloth (maximum predator protection)....$500-$1000.
Rain barrel to nipple waterers will need some fine screening/filtration or the nipple will clog.
I might build the coop first because im worried about what the neighbor will say idk. I was thinking 4x6x6 for the coop.
