Tour De Coop

Welcome. This is the pen where our chickens and chicken coop are housed. It has taken some time to get to where we are today, but we’re happy with the progress.

This is how our coop started in July 2014. The roof lifted on hinges and the door opens for easy clean out. The waterer is a 5 gallon bucket attached to a nipple system. The feeder is a U-Shaped PVC pipe with feeder holes.

A few months later we added the back half. It now serves as the coop entrance. The earth floor is reinforced with concrete around the perimeter to protect them from raccoon and possum digging under it. The coop has a solar powered chicken door that opens at sunrise and closes at sunset, courtesy of ChickenDoors.Com.

Later, we changed the slant of the first roof and added a small, separate pen on the side for introducing new chicks. 07212015 Coop Post Construction

We put in a deer feeder to feed the girls when we go out of town.
