Chicken Coop

  • November 5, 2017


Four free chickens started the need for a coop build. We have a barn on the back of my property so I decided to add the coop with a chicken run on the left side of it. The barn was 150 feet from the house so almost the entire job was installed with my Ryobie cordless tools. I put a door on the right side for feeding and coop cleaning with vents up high on both sides. On the front i added the nesting box with drop down door for easy access. The left side has a window for light and fresh air and the slide up door to enter the chicken run. I put a tarp on the top of the run for the heavy rains last week. I will most likely add a shingled roof to the run next year. The entire exterior of the run has 2feet of the chicken wire buried around its exterior horizontally to stop predators from digging there way in. Next I need to paint the barn so it matces the coop with new shingles and trim.

  • I have been always adding extensions to my chicken coop, but this is by far the best & very simple. If you don't mind I am going to use your ideas. One favor can you send me a picture of the inside to my email, thank you. Gerard B.

  • Unbelievable job!! I hope these chickens are paying rent. Its beautiful!! I belive Ryobi should present some type of reward considering you use only their tools, and it came out absolutely perfect. A well thought out job!!
