Inside Our Chicken Coop...

Our main chicken coop is 8' x 14' with an 8' x 26'  run attached. We designed the coop to include a lot of storage, ease of egg collection, monitoring, ease of cleaning and the comfort of the chickens in all seasons.  

Inside the front door is the 8' x 4' "people" and storage area. 

 

In this area of the chicken coop we collect eggs, there is feed and supplement storage, a window looking into the chicken roosting and nest box area, over head storage for crates and extra feed and water dishes,  and an interior door to enter the coop area.  

This area has made a huge difference in ease of care and feeding of the chickens.  

Below you can see the nest box egg collection area.  

To the photo on the right, is a peek inside the chicken roosting area of the coop.

The chicken run area has prevented any further chicken deaths from predators in the area.  Here you can see the run has been winterized by covering the run with plastic to prevent snow, rain and high winds from the area and to keep the chicken comfortable in the cold  winter months.

Our chicken coop has greatly improved the comfort and safety for our chickens.  

We still let the chickens free range but only when we are working in the yard.  Since we built the new coop, added the enclosed run, and allow limited free-range foraging, we no longer have a predator issue.
