Chicken coop

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

I'm considering building a new coop fir my chickens and getting rid of my eglu. The design I have in kind is a wooden panel on the the bottom and chicken wire above a wooden roof inside a straw floor a nesting box at the corner and a roosting perch I the middle I will try and find a picture. But if anyone van picture it let me know what you think.

They don't like walking on chicken wire and risk injury to their toes if they do. My advice is to look at other chicken coops. Secure door, good ventilation, a pent roof (naturally ventilated back to front), external weatherproof nest boxes and removable perch(es) are all good features. Helps your back a lot and keeps rats out if the whole coop is on stilts about 18" high. I'll try and find a picture of ours; we built three to bring to France with us.
