We just built this coop last week and is now home to my 4 new Silkies. From start to finish....
Looks great. I may use this as a basis for my new coop I'm going to build.
No prob! Go for it. I'm flattered you'd consider it. If you have any questions or need any help please let me know.
Really beautiful coop! Thanks for sharing the progressive epics. Do you have a way to keep their door open on a windy day? Couldn't see from the photos.
The door is pretty stiff to open and close but we have talked about adding a latch to keep it open just in case. So far no problems though. Thanks for the tip!
Absolutely. I know early on I twice had a big gust blow our door shut. The girls were locked out and it messed up their laying for the day. Somehow, theyre able to refrain from laying when they are not comfortable with their situation. Causes me to be concerned about them laying internally or becoming egg bound. All of which is a big digression from the point of this thread, which is - great looking coop!!
Thank you for the compliments on our coop! We will most likely be adding a latch for it to stay open just in case because I'd hate for that to happen to mine, especially if they need to get away from a predator like a hawk or something. Also, I wouldn't want them to become egg bound like you mentioned.
Great-looking coop and much on the order of what we are building soon. The pictures help me visualize the process. Can you please tell me the dimensions and how many chickens you plan on housing there?
