I built this chicken coop for some friends for their backyard farm and garden. The roof is hinged and gives access to the inside for cleaning, also the hen box roof is hinged for access to collecting eggs. I installed a rod across the inside for a roost about 24” off the floor. And the coop itself is raised off the ground so the hens can hide out in the shade. The pen is fully enclosed with chicken wire and has an access door on the front. This was a fun build, next I want to build a colonial chicken coop….
