    This is my new coop I built it with scraps I had laying around along with about $200 in new lumber and supplies.

    I plan on using it as a brooding house and isolation house after I build my main coop next spring.

    It is 8*8 with 8 nest boxes over a 8*16 run I built it like this so that I can move it when needed

    Yep it moves pretty easy with my tractor or pickup. I can move it with my UTV to

    OK, I think my comment ended up just being a comment attached to your photo, verses this thread.

    You aren't in Alaska are you?

    Truly, that is a DROOL [​IMG] worthy coop!

    I SO VERY MUCH want!

    If you are in Alaska, you I would love to hire you to build me that exact coop. My junk pile is big enough to get you started (no windows in my junk piles though....hummmmm)

    I just looked over and studied some of the Amish built coops and sheds and duplicated it the best I could.
