This chicken coop with 3m run includes a cafe blind, verandah and screening for extra weather protection.
I’m a D.I.Y. beginner and my first major project is this chicken coop. This project has been 12 months in the making with extensions along the way.
I started with the main structure and added a run (although they free range throughout the day). The tree protecting it had to be removed due to borers so I added a verandah for shelter.
2m x 1m chicken coop.
Second stage with a 3m x 1 m run.
The run wire was dug underneath the soil to prevent predators being able to enter.

Workshop member Tim built an enclosure around this coop so his chickens can roam free while keeping safe from predators and out of the garden.
Workshop member Wayne built this chicken nesting box using recycled pallet timber, MDF pieces and a plywood crate.
Thank you for the feature! I'm not looking at Chicken Coop MkII when it gets a little cooler as I need to reconfigure my backyard. Will post updates when this occurs.
