Since the weather broke (no longer a gazillion degrees outside) Ive been able to work on the new coop. Im hoping to have it done before I head back to work/school on Monday. The Girls will be 17 weeks old then and hopefully lying soon. Since the weather change Ive gotten all the roof supports in. Gotten the wire up over the windows on the sides and front. I put up 2x4 welded-wire but will be putting up chicken wire or hardware cloth on the inside so nothing can get its hand in. Also got on a coat of paint. Its pumpkin orange, lol Hey it was only $5 at Lowes!! Here it is from the side. From the front. Thats the door lying there on its side that I will be putting on. Big and heavy. If you notice Ive raised the pop-door for them to go out and free range from down low to higher up. 2 reasons 1Im hoping it will stop Tessie my headless chicken from getting out and free ranging. She just cant get away from anything that may try to eat her. 2---Im hoping it will deter dogs that may be after the chicken from getting into the coop. The pop-doors are only 9x12, just big enough for my fat arse sexies to get in and out. Out the back. Rear pop-door. They will have access to the run 24/7. Im hoping to put a solid roof over the coop sometime this winter. (After I am back to work and actually have some money to spend!!) The whole backside of the coop will be attached to the run so that no critters can get in. I still need to put on the tin roof, finish painting, and frame out the door and windows. I have some lightweight Polycarb that Im going to use to cover the windows when it gets colder. Im also looking into Plexiglas but Im sure that is way too expensive. So whatcha think?! PS. I have 1 1/2 ft of 2X4 welded-wire around the entire base, actually under the walls to help stop critter from digging under.
