The coop is coming along, I have been painting the frames, vintage recycled windows and other trim pieces, while Brad has been doing a great job with the designing and getting the recycled redwood fence pieces fitting together nicely around the coop. The floor is cement pavers which will get several inches of construction sand, based on some reviews, many have been recommending that for easy cleanup.
The windows will have a chain to open them all the way upwards on warm days for cross ventilation. Where the new wood piece is showing in the center is where the nest box will be added, jutting outwards from the walls.
We found the corrugated plastic panels for the roof in the parking lot where I work, a business had closed and left them. They filter the sunlight but allow plenty of light through.
The two large side doors allow easy coop access for cleaning.
The coop side in the run has another access door, another window and on the far right is the hen access door that closes with a pulley located on the outside. The hen ramp still has to finished.
Gonna be some mighty spoiled chickens!
Lots of lizards in the yard lately, more than I have ever seen, blue bellies and alligator ones. They are constantly darting in front of me as I walk the pathways. Saw this one the other day on a metal chicken I have in the veggie bed.
Took a few shots this evening, 7:30, almost not enough light.
