Hello BYC'ers! Please bear with me, I'm still relatively new here and still trying to figure out how everything works. In may I picked put six chicks from my local grain store (four barred rocks and two buff orpingtons) and thought I would build my own coop. After searching around on here I thought how hard could it be? So I cleaned out a spot in my yard leveled it out and put pavers down. Then I put a pallet on top. I put down plywood for the floor. And that's as far as I got. I'm not very good with wood working and I just couldn't figure out on my own, haha. So I found a guy on Craigslist that said he would build me one for $200. I thought that was a great deal, turns out it was better then I thought. The coop is almost 5' by 5' on the inside and about 6' tall. The front I also made the ramp. Side with the nesting boxes Other side/back (I was staining, you can see the bucket of stain in the corner of the picture.) Inside Nesting boxes Then after looking at coops here on BYC I decided it would be a good idea to put the linoleum flooring in my coop. I went to lowes and told them what I'm doing and they brought me to the 'left overs bin'. I got a almost 13' by 6' piece for $8. Great deal! And I cut it up and put it in. The nesting boxes And added pine shavings I also attached the lock I will take a picture tomorrow of the whole thing all settled in. My next project is to make the run, which should be fun. I don't know if this will help anyone but its fun sharing. Also, if anyone has and tips for building a run please let me know! Thanks!
