This coop business has turned from a weekend whim to an obsession. And finally, the fab 4 are out of the water can and into the chick resort. Here are some pictures of the exterior with the new added man door, chicken door, and a nest door for egg retrieval: And here are a couple of the interior. I am going for the deep liter method. I have one nest box (12 x 14) and two perch boards - each about 30 inches long. I was pleased with how the roost worked out because I was able to support it from the sides and eliminate any need for legs for easy cleaning and more free space for the sisters. There is a hanging 12 lb feeder and the water will eventually be outside. The run construction is this weekend. The interior is about 5x7 for my four girls. The run will be about 6x10. I have read lots about wire and plan on using 1" welded wire along the lower 2 feet of the run and the rest chicken wire. I live in the city so I think that will suffice. Their first night, they were a wee bit stressed as they had not been in the dark or the cold before. They seemed to be getting more comfortable with the new space later today. I just need to fashion a run and paint the coop and I will be all done. Any suggestions?
