After the tornado on May 9, 2016, we had no place to put our chickens and ducks. I was determined to utilize as much extra material from our new construction. They had plenty of leftover tin so I bought a nibbler and went to work.
I found on Anna Whites website a chicken coop. However I didn’t like exterior boxes. So I made some modifications.
I used extra boards from y boarded up window that the contractor fixed. I coated it with Thompsons Water Seal.
The framing was from Anna Whites Chicken Coop.
I lifted it into place…which was extremely heavy! Try to get help!
I created nesting boxes inside.

I created shutters on the sides so they could be opened and closed. I also ade a small back opening for them to crawl in and out.
