Well, it has begun!! My friend Corrine, is helping me with the building of my coop. We are having a blast, we worked three days and had nothing to really show for it, but yesterday the walls went up!! Here are some photos, It is a shed type style coop, it will have lots of open space near the roof, since in AZ we need to worry more about air flow and being too hot, than we do staying warm. Here is my logo/sign Here I am holding my sign looking through the top of the coop. Here is the front of the coop. It will have a door the opens sideways. Here is the interior... not painted or wallpapered yet!! it is 30" by 4 feet. ( I will only have few chickens, four at the most) This is looking down the west side, it has a small door for adding more litter, or to remove the litter as needed. This entire side will be on hinges to make it easy to open for a complete cleaning. The sides will be screwed on so it will not be hard to take it all apart and give it a good cleaning once a year or so. "Just so happens" we had 14 roofing shingles left from re-roofing our house a couple of years ago. And it will be just the right amount to cover the roof of the coop!! My friend Corinne found a new piece of fencing someone was throwing away, and it is just the right size to make a gate for the run next to the coop!! How wonderful is that!! By the end of the month... I may just have some chicks!! I am getting excited!! Today I am putting primer on the wood and going to pick out paint!!
