|Inside view of the coop (with young chickens!). A feeder and|
waterer are located on the side farthest from the nesting boxes.
You can also see one of the 2x2s we used as roosts.
|Here you can see some external features of the coop (and|
my handy helper!).
|Here is a view of the open nesting boxes.|
|This entire wall is a hinged door to make cleaning easier. Also,|
the nesting boxes have a hinged door for easy egg access.
|The coop door folds down onto the ladder, forming a landing |
for the chickens to walk out onto.
|The chickens enjoy the chicken-height window in the coop.|
|They learned to use their ladder quickly!|
One thing I may do differently is put one more window on the run side of the coop so the chickens have more opportunities to look outside in the evening.
