It was actually built back in May as my Mother's Day gift. I'm a little embarrassed to post it after seeing such wonderful coops on here, but I'm going to anyway This coop is very crude and simple, made out of what we had leftover from last year's remodel phase, but it seems to be working quite well. We have a leak in the roof but I put it on hubby's honey-do list for the weekend along with insulating it My dream coop is in the works, hopefully a cute playhouse with a larger run with an opening to my new garden. It is part of the plan for our new backyard which should start taking shape next summer. I have since made it into Fort Knox as I learned more about the predators in my area. It now is completely encased in hardware cloth and a security light is going to be installed within the next couple weeks. I have hung all their feeders and installed an automatic waterer. The run is dirt and floor of the coop is sand, which both the chickens and I love. I used shades this summer to keep the west sun off of them (it is on the north side of our house) and this winter, I'm covering the top with tarps to keep the run as dry as possible. My next coop will have everything including running water, air conditioning and heating! Now just to convince hubby... He built the nest boxes from a design the woman at the feedstore gave him. The chickens never used the roost pole in the front (I told him they wouldn't, lol), but they are a great handle for me to open and clean the boxes. It's simple, but it works! We turned the unused bottom deck off our bedroom into the coop and run. It is 9'x12'. We lifted the floor to make a back wall then power washed everything The skylights were hubby's idea and I found the windows at a restoration place in our town. The roof is a bit cumbersome but it works for now Hubby built these The window to the side is my daughter's room. I keep the coop extra clean because of this. Her cats just love to sit in the window for hours and watch the chickens. Almost done. We used plastic floor runners to cover the screens in the windows. We are looking for something different to use this winter. "I can fly!" I love this picture. This is the moment the girls were released into their new run. Nina took off in flight and seemed almost shocked that she could!
