Well, I had lots of materials salvaged from a couple of old structures and these materials were taking too much space inside my woodcarving shop and wood storage shed, so instead of crying about it, I set off to build me a chicken coop and garden shed combo. The footprint is exactly 5' wide x 16' long x 10' to ridge. The windows were also salvaged from a sunroom someone upgraded, they are crafted from white cedar, nice! I set them up on pivots, so no frames required, just swing out and fresh air blows throughout the room, nice.
The Rooster that Won't Crow
So yeah, every chicken coop should be ruled by a loud beaked rooster, but in this case the Rooster will be a silent sentinel mounted atop a prominently display beam. The one I set here in the photo is not the final one, just a test. I still have a lot of interior work to do and some exterior detailing and painting before Winter's arrival. Hopefully I will be able to get it all done and have it ready to house the "ladies"
