Man you guys just killed my minimalist chicken coop idea. It's rough keeping up with the jones. Lol
HAHA... I am a true minimalist. I'm finally getting my family on-board with this concept. Just keep in mind that minimalist doesn't have to equate to lackluster, shoddy, or cheap..
8'x11' tractor style coop (skids). Unfinished. Have done a few more mods since this photo. Will post when complete.
That's pretty sweet.
Here is a pic of our coop. It took a couple days to build but it was well worth it! We only have $68 in this coop. All wood was reclaimed.
Question: What steps have you taken to secure the bottom of the run from wildlife. With wooded areas around the property you'll have wildlife you never knew existed until you get chickens! 1-inch chicken poultry wire will keep chickens inside but will not keep predators outside!
This picture is only the completed coop. My wife and I have since made a pasture area approx 25x25 using 12 gauge fabric fencing. Thus far we have escaped any tragedy, however we are always on our guard! I appreciate the question.
