My in-the-garage chicken coop is done and my carpenter has left the area. I bet I have the strongest coop out there!!!! There's locks on everything that opens and it's double walled and insulated.
I now have to clean up the garage and pen area and pick a color to paint it. What color do you think??? I'm thinking a soft sage green with white trim. My sister thinks I should paint it a barn red with white trim. No one will really see it except me most of the time. The inside I'll paint white.
Total cost under $500.
Here's the nesting boxes outside the coop for easy egg collecting.
I wanted these natural limbs for roosts.
Nesting boxes have a removable board in front for easy cleaning.
The ramp must have been made from some boards he had because wow, that would support some hefty chickens!!! : ))
The pen has three foot high hardware wire around it and the top is all closed in and secured now.
If it ever warms up again I can start painting!
My chicks will arrive the middle of May.
I have to get my brooder set up.
I may not get eggs from these chickens till late fall or maybe not till next Spring!!
(Note to self: Order chicks much earlier!)
