New Breeder Pens

Have a cool plan for a coop? Or new roost designs? Or you simply want to show off your new building.

Well I scrapped my plans on building a bunch of the 4 ft x 4 ft coops with the sunroofs, just too time consuming, so have decided to go back to something simpler, an updated hoop house. The first ones I am building a just 4 feet by 8 feet, but will be just over 6 feet tall so I can stand up in them. The sides are made with the galvanized metal shelves I have and 2x4 frame, I will also cover with 1\2" hardware cloth to keep small pests out as well.

Yep I have 3 of these types of "hoop house" coops with birds in them now, they live in them year round. I cover them with clear vapour barrier to keep out rain and snow. I am working on a slightly better 4 ft x 12 ft design to build this spring, I will have 4 or 5 of them to use with my chicken breeding groups.
