The Coop and Pens 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some pictures of some of our first Turkeys, and a few Ameraucana chicks, as well as the original 7 chickens.

 

Here is the coop I made

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was in the midst of revamping the pig pens, and had to change gears to bang out a fast coop for the coming chickens. This was my over complicated version of a quick and dirty coop. It is 89x43 not counting the layer boxes, and 36 inches tall. 3 large layer boxes, (13x15x8” deep). and a full length roost. There is a swing up door for an entrance and a swing up door for egg collecting and cleaning the layer boxes.
