It make take the whole weekend and then some, but construction has begun on the chicken mansion. The Floor is nearly complete.
In the end, this will be an 8 x 6 small shed with nesting boxes and a hatch that opens at floor level to assist in sweeping out the dirty bedding. I am planning on adding vents and a solar panel to run the fan in the summer and heat bulb in the winter. As this is my first structure, I don't expect perfection but I am excited to learn some new skills. The coop will be home to twelve chickens in the end and will hopefully provide eggs for years to come.
