First off, what a great site to find out about all things chicken. My wife got things started by finding a free chicken tractor (if we took the chickens-4h, 1r). Sounded good because I really don't have time for chickens. Well, after hauling it home, it was too small and had other problems. The chickens are past their "prime" but who would have considered that? Anyway, we are getting some eggs and they are a really nice chickens. We have an awesome landfill with a small covered area (we call the mall) where people leave good usable items, and wood pile where you can get free wood so went and scored some 2x's, and plywood. So far no purchased items. Did have a 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plywood left over from building a shop so used it for most of the floor which is 7"2" x 6'. The coop will have a storage area to the left, and chickens on the right. In the future, a small covered run off the back, and incorporate the existing fencing for a large free range area around our garden. My plan is to frame the roof so it uses 1-1/2 sheets of plywood on each side. Suggestions and comments welcome!
