So, today I put the finishing touches on this chicken coop, made from a broken cabinet and a shelf. I've never build anything like this before.
The aim is to tempt this beautiful free-roaming Golden hen to live inside. Does anyone know anything about chickens to help me get her moved in? I have put in a few bits of bread. Will add some hay/dry leaves once the rain lets up.
There is a perch inside facing sideways within the taller section, Note that the enlarged slanted roof gives her more room while perching, drips off rain rather than letting it soak through, and makes a sheltered and shady area outside to the right. I also offset the door and shaped the top to minimise exposure to wind. I'm planning on filling in some small gaps between boards with window putty. Can anyone suggest some easy improvements?
I will post any future DIY/Repair/Gardening stuff here. You are all welcome to as well! Love, Snarl!
