Chicken Coop–Days 3, 4, and 5

Well, the henhouse still isn’t finished.  I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am a bit disappointed.  Oh well.  On Friday night  we put the roosts in and put a floor on it.  Saturday we figured out the doors, how to hinge them, and how they should work.  On Sunday we finished the doors and I cut the roof out of Palruf and I screwed it up, so then I had to go buy PVC glue and try and fix it, then let it dry.  So, this is how far we got.  It looks a lot like the last picture I posted.  The roof is ready to instal as soon as we can find the time, though!

    Hi, you’ll put more photos up on it, won’t you? I like the A frame type too. Hey, check out my new mobile coop.

      I will add more photos, Elizabeth. You’ve got a ton on chickens… we’re only allowed three in our town.

    Nice job, we are currently building a walk in run but finding the time is harder than we thought

    What a great coop! We built a chicken run not too long ago, and got some ‘chooks’ as they’re called here in New Zealand.

    I wanted blue eggs so the breed I got are Lavendar Araucana. You can read about my quest for blue eggs at ‘Moon Over Martinborough’.
