Hi, all! I was all set to purchase a pre fab coop, but was just finding junk online, when my husband had an idea I'm getting more and more excited about... converting an old truck on our farm to be our coop! We'll use the box in the back of this truck to be the coop, and I just need to plan the layout and details before we haul it into the yard and start working. I'm not sure of the exact measurements (I'll go out and measure this afternoon when the kiddo is up from his nap), but here is a pic of the side view of the part we'll be converting to coop: And then a peek inside (as taken while standing by the body of the truck): Obviously needs some work, but I'm pretty excited about the project. I'll need to clean it out and seal the wood really well... here are my current questions/considerations I could use some ideas and help with: 1. What type of roof? Peaked, sloped, rounded? And should I extend the sides up higher or leave them at this height for now? 2. How should I plan the layout? Once I know where I want my roots and such, we can build some pull-out poop boards and then start cutting into the sides of the truck to make them accessible from outside the coop for cleaning. We have some old wooden nesting boxes we'll use in here, but I'm not sure what area to put them in. 3. How to approach ventilation. Should I just incorporate ventilation at the roof/sides attachment? Or also make some smaller holes somewhere up high on the sides? I'm also considering cutting in a couple windows (with sliding wood to cover in winters and hardware cloth to protect when they are open) - do you recommend or not recommend doing so? 4. What else?! Any other considerations I should be thinking about?!?!
