My wife wanted chickens..the kind for laying eggs..blue eggs at that. So for over a year they have been living in a small coop that she designed using an igloo dog house and some fencing..they seemed happy. She wanted them to be happier..so we designed a new coop and built it over the summer. The chickens (and my wife) have never been happier.
The front has double door access to the coop for cleaning and the rear has a storage area for all the food and assorted items we need for the cluckers.
