New Coop

We finally got our new coop today!  Now we just have to paint it, and put up the yard.

Re: New Coop

We just moved into our house at the end of December, and because of that have have had lots of projects, including fencing, etc.  My husband also works out of town, and is home only about one day a week, so getting a coop built was not looking good.  In addition, since they just legalized chickens in Nashville this year many people have been selling coops, but at premium prices.  We also have detailed requirements for our coops under the law here.  That equaled a challenging situation for getting a coop built or purchased. 

Finally I found someone on Craig's List that was selling a chicken tractor similar to this, so I asked what a non-movable version would be.  Long story short - he built this for us and delivered it for cheaper than we could have bought the materials for!  It is incredibly sturdy, and well built.  One side has the nest boxes, the other side has a plexiglass door for cleaning, and a third side has double doors covering a large wire mess opening for ventilation (important in our heat).  The underside has a ramp, and places to roost inside.  We have a few modifications to make, but overall it is perfect for what we needed.

Re: New Coop

I saw some real fancy chicken feeder and/or waterer in TSC store yesterday.  A clear plastic with a picture of a chicken on it and you can reverse the screw-on bottom to either accomodate feed or water.  I was expensive though very cute.  The only problem I saw was that there weren't many screw-on rings (I'm sure there is a word for that) so I can imagine filling it with water, turning it upside down to carry and it falling apart.  Anybody else use these?

Re: New Coop

The coop still in progress... we bought it pre-made, but it had a lot of adjustments needed, so we have those done now and just need to get the outside yard done.

When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Re: New Coop

I like the classic paint job. The flowers are a nice touch. Sure looks safe too. I should have bought stock in hardware cloth when I started with chickens.
