Our new coop is 95% done! My boyfriend Andy deserves all the credit as he built it from the ground up. I did the little stuff like putting up the hardware cloth, staining, etc. . Chickens are in their new coop and survived their first night. We still have to make a feeder, waterer, some more doors, aesthetic touches, etc. We'll be making a pvc/nipple waterer. Let me know what you think! Update 10/22/09: The front of the run is now complete...well...we still need to put a return spring on the door so that it will close automatically...but otherwise it's pretty much done. To the run's right (where the plant is now) is where we will put the addition - it will be a run that will be attached to this run and extend 6 feet out. This side of the coop if pretty much done. Here is where the additional run will be. I have to clean up, fill in, and then level the ground to prepare for the addition.Add a captionThis side of the coop if pretty much done. Here is where the additional run will be. I have to clean up, fill in, and then level the ground to prepare for the addition. We won't be working on the addition for a few weeks out - still have to finish this coop up and make the waterer. Update: 10/27/09 - It's DONE!! Well...there are a few little tweaks here and there, but it's pretty much done. Now we will work on the second run. To the right of the coop (where the plant is) is where the addition will be. It will extend out 8+ feet (as far as possible). Here is the completed coop with the nest door open - that's where I can collect the eggs that they lay in the nests (well, that's the plan anyways!) UPDATE: 12/9/09 Still have some finishing touches to complete on the extension to make it look nice, but the chickens are all moved in and loving it. This is the doorway into the extension run and the chickens happily checking out their new play area.
