Progress on the Make-Do Chicken Coop

The cooler mornings have given me a chance to transform the old isolation coop into something suitable for the new chicks. The bottom perimeter is still unfinished and it’s not winterized, but I’ve still got 3 weeks.  I tore down my rotten years old chicken coop a few months ago, and I still don’t have the chicken coop I want, so… until I do, this will work.

Maybe I’m being a brat, but I’m not settling for anything less than the super spendy chicken house I still can’t afford. I’ll wait… and save my pennies, because it’s sooooo worth it! The coop is built by a local guy here in Phoenix. It’s 2×4 construction and comes with 8-16 nest boxes, roost, shingled roof, and paint.  I’m having it painted red and white to match the brooder outbuilding. Price tag, $1,300… ouch.
