My DH and I built this coop for our 10 chickens. The coop itself is 12x4x4 with a 8x12 run. Still need to add some wire to the top of the coop!

First the framing


Next - painted with three coats of exterior paint and primer. The base for the enclosed coop is now in place.


Bought linoleum squares from Lowe's for $12 and love it for easy cleaning


Door now in place



Now I'm jumping ahead. We used plywood for the coop with three small vents, nesting doors and two large doors with vents in the back.


Now we have our corrugated metal roof up - probably will out last the coop!!
There is dirt on the end because my DH is growing hops. The chickens will be great for getting some bugs off when the plans get big enough.


Finally we added vinyl lattice to around the bottom of the coop for extra protection from our dogs.
The coop has sand on the bottom and I use pine flake shavings inside the coop.


This was their first day out.



And here are some pictures of my chickens!

My two fluff buts - white cochin (cool whip) and silkie (jojo)


ISA brown Sriracha



My two EEs - Mulan (Darker color) and Lil' Debbie (lighter one)
