Coop Deluxe

This 8′ x 16′ framework serves as a rather fancy yet stout coop for a mixed flock of 80 or so very fortunate chickens. Framed in both eastern hemlock and black locust, the coop is centrally located between two fenced paddocks that will serve as alternate pasture in a high-intensity rotational foraging system for the laying hens.

We designed, framed, and finished this building just before the on-set of winter.
