here's the coop me and my boyfriend built today. we used an old dog kennel (5x15x7), then zip-tied 1" chicken wire all around the bottom with 2" overhang, deer netting zip-tied over the top and finally blue tarp over the nest boxes. inside, i have an x-large dog kennel, an x-small dog kennel (both with fresh grass lining), feeder, waterer, grit and small perch. it's pretty redneck looking, but the chickies love it!! (i also spread a snake repellent around the coop) it's so much fun to see them running around, scratching, eating bugs and grass and just having a good time, hopefully they go to bed ok.
