Then, my sister and brother-in-law came to help assemble it. It's modular so there is no cutting, just tying to to follow the non-existent directions and screwing things together. ~
This roofed section over the nesting box lifts so you can gather the eggs.
There are perches and and the floor slides out to remove the droppings. ~
It has a built in run so my ladies don't escape and I don't have any "fox in a hen house" scenarios. ~
It's adorable! The only problem is.....it's really, really small. I was told it should hold about twelve chickens. It will hold two! Four chickens would make me the official owner of a battery farm!
Sooo.....now I am planning an addition to the coop.
Oh, and remember how I planned on obscuring an ugly shed with it? I'm thinking the neighbour has the last laugh. ~
Go ahead and laugh at my miniature chicken coop!!!
