This weekend, Mark and I assembled a little 4×4 chicken coop, sold as “Le Coop.” Though small, it is remarkably well-built. We’re not quite done; I didn’t want to use their perch or nest dividers, so I will be adding my own later. I’ll also paint and attach the little chicken ramp.
This little coop will be used for the chicks while they are small. If I only hatch out a few hens, then they will live here until I get more, maybe next spring. If there are too many chickens to live here full grown, we’ll put in a larger coop and run this summer and use the little coop as a breeding and brooding pen.
