Hey Everyone,

I finally got around to building myself a new coop for my birds.

Thought I would share some pics of my recent creation, it's a 8x4x6 (LxWxH) Barn style tractor, It will be put on wheels if I can, or at least skids.
The idea is for it to be a Spring/Summer time open floored, breeding pen/isolation coop etc.

The Coop area is 4x4x6, the run is the same. I will be putting in an additional pop door on the run so they can get out to free range.

I have other coop projects that I am working on but thought I would share some pics of this one!

Not done yet, but almost!

You have NO idea how tempting that is. You could come and hunt and fish for a few days too! Very Happy

Maybe you could just sell the plans Jonny? I can build but have a hard time without a hard copy in front of me to copy the angels from.

That has been something that has long since been on my mind.
I am yet to go forth with it but it's a great idea.

Would like to sit down with my friend who is a designer and have her help me make a set of instructions that would be easy to follow.

Terrific!

If you hear noises around your place at 3:00 AM, just ignore.

No excuse for not having another divine abode for the chooks. All you have to do is pay for materials and cook for two men! LOL

No exploding eggs on the menu though. tongue

Tara

You kidding,

I would be more than happy to help with the cooking. Very Happy

What ever happened to the days where people got together and helped one another out and the payment was a good hearty home cooked meal??

Hey, that's still how we roll around here. Or if all hands are needed to build, the meal is our fantastic local pizza and cold beer.
