Building Franny’s Coop June 10, 2012

Filed under: Animals,Environmental Education,Gardening,Gratitude — explorergarden @ 6:20 am

I built a coop out of our old wooden play structure. Here’s how I did it:

First, I lined the bottom with hardware cloth and replaced the bottom boards with Trex.

Next, I built a platform 3 feet off the ground as a nesting box.

Then I enclosed the bottom in hardware cloth and built a ramp up to the nesting box.

Then I made a door in one end with a lock.

Here are the results! Happy chickens!
