PLANS FOR A HANDICAP COOP FOR MY BROTHER
Would love to see the plan.
How nice of you to help him.
Are you looking for plans or you alreay have some?
I was wondering the same thing...
I would think something long, short but little depth would be best. Where the whole front can open up for easy access.
Handicaped in what way...able to use arms? Legs? Neither? Does he have a favorite breed, size or useage? (eggs, shows, meat, pets?) A coop meeting his specific needs can easily be designed but specifics are needed to get it all right.
If he is in a wheel chair a raised coop with a accsess door at chair height would be great. Maybe with a conrete path around so he can always have easy acsess to the coop without getting mud allover the wheels. Reach is inportant too. So you dont want a huge coop. Or as an alternative you might want a coop that is so big that he can roll in with a chair. With would prob mean a 8x10 plus in size.
X2 and maybe put the nest box in the front of the coop to one side low enough to access it from a wheelchair. Make sure the nesbox is accessible from the outside of the coop with a lifting lid or maybe the back of the nestbox could drop down.
