Taynor's that is a very good looking coop. How wide is it? It looks like six - eight ft. I sure think you guy's did a great job.

I'm in the proccess of building five 4x8 coops right now. Each coop will house seven hen's and one rooster all of different breeds. Their run will be six x sixty feet. We will collect eggs just for hatching, and selling fertile eggs. Lots of work but lots of ful also. Hay.

Truth should be everpresent.
I need to build a new coop in the spring. They are living in temp housing right now and it barely does the job. Long story but the saga looks to have a happy ending soon. The cattle panel house looks like an option for me. The snow wouldn't collect on top.

Hay, your new project sounds great. Please keep us updated.

Hi Cajun!! As always, good to see you, I also like the cattle panel idea, simple and yet attractive I think. Hay.

they run about $16 to $19 dollars a piece.
to make a coop
i wrap around chicken wire and use plastic in winter
during summer half is plastic so they can get shade and dry coverage.
this is the dry nesting area that has plastic over it full year.
