**SCROLL down for the two newest pics of the finished coop!** Our vet gave us his old 8'6"x6'6" open air coop a few weeks ago and have plans to frame the walls, add a floor, replace the roof, add windows, etc. This coop will replace our old 4'x8' A-frame coop where are 4 chickens currently sleep/lay. We have been wanting to upgrade for quite some time so we can get more chickens! If all goes as planned, we will be able to get a bunch of new chicks in the spring. Yay! My DH is a biology professor with carpentry tendencies. So far, I think it looks pretty good! I will be adding pictures to this post as DH makes progress on the coop. So far the roof has been replaced, walls have been framed, and a floor has been added. Next: enclose walls, add three 24"x24" windows, make nest boxes, add siding. Stay tuned! Our current A-frame coop (with naughty dogs inside) Don't worry, they only eat the chicken food, not the chickens. The "new" coop. Chicken wire had been removed and the floor started by this point. This is where we are at now. Walls are up and the floor and roof are installed. The walk-in door will be on the left, a 24"x24" window on the right. Bowser the barred rock helps out where she can. Site supervisors. The roof is done! Nest boxes are done and Bowser does an inspection. The nest boxes work! One of our EEs who hasn't layed for months figured them out! (look closely in the nearest box) The back wall and the door are on. The rest of the walls will be installed after the windows come in. It has been a while since I have been on BYC, but we finished the coop last fall. It has been sitting empty all winter and is ready for our new little flock. We will be moving them in in a few weeks! Here are the nest boxes. In a couple of weeks we will install flooring and roosts. Yay!
