i've been working on the coop for my 5 rescue girls. the coop itself is 4x4x4 with a slanted roof. i still need to build nest boxes into it and add a perch for them to roost on. the bottom half of the back wall will open up for easy access for collecting eggs when they start laying. for now it is just screwed on though. i will finish the door when i finish the nest boxes. hopefully i can work on it this weekend. i'll pain it when i'm done with it. i cut a large open front door for them so they can get good airflow in the summer since it gets so hot here. the run is 4x8x4. i used left over non climb cattle fencing from when we put up the dog run. the wire goes about 4 inches into the ground then fans out about a foot to make it difficult for anything to dig its way in. i plan on putting chicken wire along the bottom 2 feet of the run for added protection but i just haven't had the chance yet. the roof of the run is wire except for the first foot and a half or so after the coop. i made that out of plywood so they have a solid awning. the front of the run is plywood and has a 2' wide door on it. here are some pics of it. let me know what you think. how many chickens do you think could comfortably live in it? here is a side view of the coop nad run here is a view of the coop from inside the run a quick pic of most of the girls and a pick of my helper keeping watch over them for me lol...he loves them and is friends with them..you would think he was raised with chickens his whole life.
