Hello everyone. I've been on here looking at photos of chicken coops for months and now that mine is almost completed, I thought I'd share. I've been spending all my free time working on it as we are soon headed out for vacation and our six chicks will be 6 weeks old when we leave. So I need to get them out of the brooder (cardboard box) before then. The coop is 6'x4' and the run is 10'x6'. This is my first attempt at building anything structural and it was a lot of fun. I still have plenty to do: seal the lumber, roll out blackjack #57 on the floor and tray, hardware cloth, run door, latches. and more, I'm sure. I'm planning on using sweet pdz on the poop tray, and a combination of sweet pdz and pine shavings on the floor. I'd be interested in anyone's thoughts on that plan. Thanks!
