Great looking Coop Darren. I built ours last year just a little larger…we have 6 hens and one roo and would like a few more layers. Love the fresh eggs daily.

Nice looking coop. I also built one just a bit larger last year – for my son and daughter-in-law. Sadly, no chickens allowed in our neighborhood.

That is a nice looking coop! I like the elevated house area. It gives them more yard space!! Then you can call them free range chickens!! How many chickens will it hold?

That’s a really nice project. The fox may not like it because it seems like a very good design. Congratulations.

Nice coop, my GF raises chickens and thus I save all of my sawdust for her, she lays the sawdust on the floor and ground, easier to clean plus I heard it keep rats away. shurgs

Thanks all for the comments! It will comfortably hold our six hens. We got rid of the roosters…. wayyyy tooo much noise! We have a load of foxes here too so I have since put a hot fence wire around the base of the whole thing and the top of the run….. It’s worked pretty good so far… I have been using sawdust too…. it works great.

Guess I’m a city boy cause I thought you need at least one rooster to get eggs? LOL!

It looks like it’s been moved since it was made. Is it made to be portable or did you just muscle it into place?
I didn’t know this either until my son-in-law started looking into raising chickens. No roosters needed for eggs – only for fertilized eggs. By the way, did you ever notice that the rooster isn’t even brought into the “Which came first . . . ” equation? :)

We did move it Whit. It was a bit too close to the bbq pavilion. It’s not really meant to move easily but can be with some effort.
