We just finished building a long and narrow coop .. can I post pictures?
Please post pictures. I would love to see your coop.
I am just figuring out how to get the pictures posted ... here's a shot from our back porch with the hens up on their outdoor perch.
Here's the girls under their outdoor perch looking down the length of our back fence, the nesting boxes are at the end.
Here's their 4 laying boxes built between our greenhouse (8x12) and the fence. The panel behind the laying boxes opens from the outside for easy access to the eggs.
This area has a roof over it and they sleep up on the roost in here.
Very clever use of space!!
I agree, great use of space. What is that green plant in the center of the run? Where do they sleep at night? Oh, BTW,
lol, say goodbye to all the pretty foliage inside the coop, though!
The green plant is a Hydrangea that lived there before they moved in. So far they don't like to eat it and it doesn't seem to mind the manure. There is also an evergreen clematis weaving around the coop which they don't eat. Do you have a horse by Gallo del Cielo?
Great job! It looks very nice!
Thank you for posting pictures of your coop. It looks like we have very similar backyards, only my house faces another neighbor behind the fence. We tucked our coop into the corner of the yard and stretched the run just a little ways along the fence.
