o I had just moved to the country, and decided I wanted some chickens, problem, I didn't have a place for them. Well, I wanted to enhance my carpentry skills anyways, so I decided to build a very classic looking chicken coop. Basically, I created a foundation of cinder blocks, created a 2x6, 16 inch on center sub floor, covered it with plywood and then vinyl, and famed up walls and nesting boxes.Next I covered the outside with plywood and put a roof on, it is roofed with metal.
Finally, I sided the coop with recycled wood from another shed that needs to come down.
After that, I painted it barn yard red with white trim. I built a door for it and put doors over the egg access holes to the nesting boxes. I also created a frame for an old window I found to swing out in the summer. I also added a run to the right in 2013 so they can have some protection when I'm not around, but not be cooped up.
