    Here are some pictures of our Bantam coop were making in progress. It will be one coop but with a wall of hardware cloth in-between to separate the coop in two for two separate breeds. The size is 8 foot by 4 1/2 feet by 4 feet (smaller end)

    Here is the finished product: We do have to paint the outside or put siding on it but that won't take much at all. Most likely we will be putting siding on it. The roof is done and the inside is done. Chickens are living in it already and they love it. It's very well insulated and VERY warm too [​IMG]

    The blue things look like electrical outlets. I want to know why you are building it in the garage?

    Ok to answer the question on why we are building in the garage. It's COLD outside! LOL It's been below zero for days so we are working in our heated garage [​IMG] We will pull it out with our tractor and move it into place. I'm going to take a video of THAT one! Should be very interesting...the thin weighs a TON! [​IMG]
