When we decided to get chickens, I had the perfect solution with a dog kennel to house them while I build a new coop. Of course, my idea of a coop consisted of a simple lean to with chicken wire and a tarred roof. Nothing major nothing minor! And then my wife gets involved: "It must be pretty and cute..." BAH!!!!! Keep in mind I am not a contractor nor am I a carpenter. But I got 'er dunn! LOL Started out with lumber and a shed framing kit I bought from Northern Tools. Wall studs! Studs and rafters. Nesting box framed. Nesting box installed. I decided to buy one from our local feed store rather than try building one. Chicken wire and metal rook installed. Wood panels on each side and the back. My wife wanted it painted in the same fashion as our yard barn, Nesting boxes. Outside access Chickens enjoying their new home! Roost Roxy wanted some camera time It's finished! Looking from the house The gals already found their nesting boxes.
