Temporary Coop

The chicks are growing so quickly.  They’re going to out-grow their current demesne faster than I had anticipated.

I want to build a coop that can handle a couple dozen chickens, but now isn’t the time.  I need to focus on temporary living space for my family, not the chickens.  I need a temporary solution.

coopI was able to salvage this lean-to.  It was destined to become part of a bonfire.  I rescued it and added a floor and back wall.

I have some more work to do.  I need to install a door and cover up the rest of the front.

My goal is to get by until July or August.  I plan on building a nice walk-in coop with a linoleum floor, perches and boxes.
