    I built The All in one Coop from Building Chicken coops for dummys.
    I built it all by myself.
    I ended up leaving the Skid out of the plans since I didnt plan on moving it around.
    My total cost for the coop $300
    I used a lot of Wood found in dumpsters.
    The roof alone cost $80
    The other expense are for a few 2X4s,Hidges,Latches,Hardware Cloth, and Paint
    It fits my birds great.
    I took Picture as I built it but lost some of them when my other computher crashed

    Frame work




    Roof added


    All Finshed







    as you can see They like laying under the nest box
    I usually have hay in the nest box
