Hey Chicken People! This week’s Chicken Wire features Jenn’s urban flock and coop from the Pacific Northwest. I thought it would be cool to see some before and after photos as well as a different style of coop.
This is a “future home of the coop” shot.
This is the completed coop. It’s a two story, with the roost and nesting boxes on the top and the chicken run on the bottom. This coop was built to help shelter the hens from the rain and weather in the Pacific Northwest. The two story construction is super space efficient and allows the hens somewhere to run and hang out where they aren’t going to get wet.
Here’s a peek into the top of the hen house. It’s got a nice high roost, a folding door that allows the chicken owners to open it up in the limited side yard space and some very cool clear pannels to protect from the weather and to let in the sun when it’s shining. The drawer on the bottom of the hen house facilitates easy cleaning.
This is the bottom of the coop. It has a roost bar, on the right, and more food and water.
Here is some of the lovely flock that enjoys this neat coop~ from left to right they are Nugget, Dumpling, Gwen, and Tribble. Nugget is a Rhode Island Red, Dumpling a Barred Rock, Gwen a Black Sex Link, and Tribble a Black Australorp.
