Easter time rolled around and my wife and I bought some chickens for the girls and a little gift. Well they were inside in a rabbit cage, but got bigger so their new home was a dog lot. their chicken coop started out as a small dog house, but as they grew they got a bigger home. Their new coop is 5’ 6” wide and 2’9”. It sits up 2’ off the ground so they can roam around under neith it. They are definetly comfortable. They also have 2 nesting boxes.

The inside is nothing special. It has a “T” part in it for the nesting boxes. The floor is chicken wire with hay laid down for them to walk on and lay their eggs. They are just a cross bred chicken from the local feed and seed store.

Now this is a wonderfully functional project!! We would love to have chickens but I have too many dogs and then there’s the part about me having to build the chicken coop. Ho hum.
