    Hi, I am new here and kind of new to owning chickens (about 4 months). This is a video of me explaining the whole coop concept and implementation, I was wondering if there is anything you more experienced people might see that could be a problem in future as this is all new to me.



    All the wood, paint, and iron used in this project was free so it owes me about $300 NZ.

    Glad to hear any feedback.

    Cheers.

    I made it up as I went along, the only thing I had in my head was a general idea of coop size and configuration plus the idea that I wanted it to be modular. I wanted to be able to make it bigger or smaller as needed plus have the capacity to extend beyond what the original plan was so that we could increase the number of chickens later by just adding more coops and squares as needed. There was also the whole problem of renting so we needed to be able to move it without too much trouble.

    Cheers.
