I just had to share. A friend at work actually built it for me and put the rock on the front and back of our "chicken chateau." I built the ramp to the covered roost - and we're covering it with 1/2" hardware mesh since we have 2 curious dogs (pit/lab mixes) and we'll have to put some down on the edges so the dogs don't dig under. I'm still working on the "man door" - hinges in place, door frame mostly done. Can't wait for my 1 week old chickies to grow up and use it! It was supposed to be a small chicken tractor, but when someone else is building it, they have their own ideas. The structure footprint is about 5ft by 8ft. I've installed a roosting pole and will put in a few more here and there. I'm thinking the food will be under the covered section in case of rain, etc. And the other view... Any suggestions? I'm a little concerned about the actual size of the covered area where they'll lay. It's about 4ft wide by 3ft wide with the a-frame roof. Is that big enough? Or should I expand that out a bit? Thanks.
