Just completed our hen coop! After studying many MANY coop designs, I attempted to get the best of all worlds...mobility, durability, weatherability, and predator-proof(ability).
We plan to let them range in a rotating poultry netting fence, then move the coop to a new area as needed...yet they hopefully have enough room in case we need ever need to keep them cooped. Enclosed area is insulated, hopefully helping not only with chilly winter nights, but sweltering summer days. My girls are now 5 weeks old, and I am eager to get them out if the weather will cooperate!

Thanks for the nice feedback! We're in northern Arkansas...I have 14 girls - 5 Buff Orpingtons, 5 Barred Rocks, 2 RR Reds, and 2 Easter Eggers.


This forum is a GOLD MINE for good info, with lots of cool chicken people!
