Hi all! I love BYC and am learning a ton here. Thanks so much for the great community. When I bought my property, there was an old playhouse on it which hadn't been used for 10 years. I don't have kids, and I wanted chickens, so I converted it to a coop. I put two layers of R 3.3 foam insulation on the walls and then covered that with white shower board to prevent pecking and make it easy to clean. I put weatherstripping around the doors and windows. The coop is not heated and it stays about 8-10 degrees warmer than outside when closed up. I currently have 10 pullets. The inside dimensions of the coop at 7 x 10 and the porch adds a little to the outside. For a roost, I laid a pallet against the wall on a piece of framing wood to hold it without slipping. For nest boxes, I am using the ol' 5 gallon bucket trick fastened to an old cabinet turned on its side. I am using a heated dog water dish for water, cleaned and refilled daily. So far so good, the pullets do well in our NH cold and snow and enjoy going out on the patio for outside time, without having to wade in the frosty white stuff. The coops is a little "rough" but it is working so far and it's my first time with chickens so I am learning a lot. I hope the girls will start laying soon. All comments and criticisms are welcome. I would love to improve on my current coop!
