This is the future site of my new coop (The Hollandaise Inn). My uncle came today to look at the trees we wanted to cut down so he could give us a price, I wanted them to be cut down so a storm couldnt blow them onto the coop, he is suppose to come some time next week and cut them . The trees in the pic with the orange on them are the ones that will be cut. My coop will be 8' X 8' and will be divided down the center to make two separate coops that measure 8' X 4'. I will have my EE's on one side and my BCM's on the other. Each coop will also have an attached run that is about 15' X 8'. The siding is going to be pine slabs (the long pieces of wood that lumber yards cut off of trees with the bark on it before they are cut into 2X4, 4x4, etc) I found that it will be cheaper to do it that way because a small lumber yard near me sales their slabs for $20 for as many as you can fit in the back of your truck. I will probably put some deck sealer stuff on it to help protect it and make it last longer. I will try to update again once the trees are cut and once the area is cleared of all the debris and a few other times during construction. The trees have been cut and I have begun the dreaded process of cutting them up and clearing them out of the way. Here is an updated pic: On a side note I now have alot of work to do to my duck lot. Several large tree limbs were knocked out of the other trees that were not cut down and they landed on the duck lot basically destroying it, no ducks were harmed, they were moved to a different pen prior to the cutting because I knew that you never know what is going to happen when trees are being cut. I have to try and bend the wire back in place and put the door back up.
