So we moved to a new property about a month ago and out in the back there was an old coop that had not been used in about twenty years. I asked the landlord if I could get chickens and she said I could do what ever I wanted with it so my chicken adventure began. Here is a a few pics of it when we moved in before the renos I saw a bunch of others coops had nesting boxes that you could access from outside so I ripped the old ones off the wall and cut a hole on the front wall and moved them, I reused as much of the old boxes a possible. it also needed a new door, also constructed from old reclaimed cedar fencing lying around the yard. I decided to build my chickens a run also it is 18'x14' and 5' high with the wire buried 14" below grade and 6" out. I now know that this might not be high enough and it is not covered but I will see how my birds do and have plans to extend and cover in the future. this is my gate (not finished) I have some metal roofing paneling that I will attach to it well thats it for now this is a work in progress but Im having fun so far!
