So Dad finally got a day to do some construction. Here is phase 1 of the Chicken Palace. The front area is 6x3x2.5 (tall), in back are 8 14"x14" nest boxes on two levels, with access doors on the back side. The run is temporary, but will be 12x6x6' tall. Much improved from the converted dog house (soon to be chicken tractor). I know I need a feeder and watering system set up, that will be phase 2 - any suggestions for maintenance on this coop, or issues that I over looked? At the moment construction has turned the run into a sloppy clay mess - so i have straw hay laid over it.
