Hello, folks! I met a fellow BYC-er this past spring (Opa). Knowing he is a builder, I hired him to build me a small (4' x 6') coop for an upcoming breeding project. It came out WAY better than I even envisioned it, and I wanted to share it with you. It's got two nest boxes, a nice window above them, drip edge all around (even on the nest boxes), vents in each end, and even has ridge vent..my HOUSE doesn't even have that! Sam built it on 4x4 posts and angled the ends to make it easier to move. The posts are lag bolted onto the 2x4 braces (I may be getting the wording wrong on this!). Here's the interior, which is covered in...oh, shoot - don't remember what the stuff is called, but it's smooth and brigh inside, and this stuff will make it SO easy to clean - just spray on cleaner, let set a few mins., and wipe off! My original coop is just bare wood inside, and takes HOURS to thoroughly clean, with a wire brush. The roost is removable, and the poop will fall into the bin underneath: Here's the ceiling - you can see that the liner stuff is even on the ceiling, and in this pic, you can see the ridge vent: I'd mentioned to Sam that I lost a few eggs to freezing last winter, so he lined the nest boxes and lid with 1 1/2" insulation! The lid for these two nest boxes is much heavier than the lid to my SIX nest boxes of my original coop! We pulled the coop into the garage for painting, since it's heated in there and it was too cold outside. The runners Sam built the coop on made it easy to move. Here's DH pulling the coop out of the garage after painting to move it back to the barn: And another of it about halfway there...with Macey, my baby girl, watching over the progress: Here, it's close to it's final resting spot. The area it's in will be fenced in next spring; we will cut a large section out of the existing chicken run, and the nest boxes for this coop will actually jut out into the other chicken run. This way, when I go into run #1 to collect eggs from coop #1, I just walk to the other side of the run to collect eggs from coop #2. I won't even need to go back out, through the barn, and into run #2. What a time saver! Sorry there are so many pictures, but I'm just THRILLED with this coop and wanted to share with you all! I would HIGHLY recommend Sam as your builder if you are within driving distance and are in need of a small coop like mine!!
