    Here is my roughed in 8.5x10 coop. Large window wall is west, small window East, no window south wall where roost and poop trays go. North wall has door and unfinished poop door which if I can figure it out will be slotted. Ideas and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Nice job!. Where did you put the laying boxes. Do you have any updated pictures?

    I converted an old camper that someone gave me. I put laying boxes in the cupboards and where the old appliances were. Two eight foot 2x2's fit perfectly between the windows for roosts. Cost me all of 10 dollars to finish. However the chain link fencing was about 300 dollars.

    Wow, That is a great idea, and I only wish mine was that inexpensive. I think I have 500 or so in the coop and run the hardware cloth alone was 130. I did use a lot of repurposed wood and tin, but since I did it all with screws that is expensive. I will try to get updated photos. I hope to be done Saturday:)!!! The nest boxes are entirely made from reclaimed wood so all it cost me were some hinges, screws, and some of my $9 exterior oops paint.
