Constructing Your Own Coop

So you want to build your own coop? When starting a new project I always need to sketch it out. Usually, it’s done freehand on the back of an old envelope. Today though, because I knew you would be looking at it, I pulled out all the stops and used a ruler. You’re welcome.

The Plan

This is going to be a 6 ft x 4 ft coop that can house up to 6 layers. The legs will be 2 ft long, so the birds can go under the coop for shelter or dust bathing. The window is plexiglass and can be opened. Some of the side doors will use slide off hinges so they can be removed in hot conditions. Stay tuned!
