I would like to know how to make a breed coop
What is a Breed Coop as oposed to a coop?
I guess you mean a small coop to seperate a breed into.
I would use a tractor to separate them into check on line for the planes.
sorry I mean just a small coop
I mean a coop bigger than a tractor and it doesn't move around
I guess it depends how many birds you are wanting in there, or is this just for the broody hen and her chicks?
I have a small coop 5x4 feet although an a frame, set up on a run 5x8 feet so they have a covered area underneath to hang out. I built it planning to house 4 bantams for my son to care for, but now I'm planning on using it as a broody coop, although without the forethought when I built it, now i'm going to put a small doghouse in the covered area for the hen to nest, because the chicks will fall out of the raised coop here is a photo, its built with 2x4 construction and 1/4 inch plywood and it too heavy to actually move like a tractor, although if I added wheels or handles I could probably move it with a couple adults
I mean a little coop for breeding in the spring
I'm going to be building one myself here soon, and it will be just a regular coop. But smaller. They will still have 4 sq feet per bird, but I'm only planning on putting 5 girls and 1 roo in it.
I just divided my coop in half to keep the breeds seperate. We put a sheet of plywood at the bottom and then chicken wire at the top. hope that helps.
I am doing to my one coop
