re: Chicken coop build with lots of pics - xrockfordf150x
Here are the feed / water devices. We used the little ones in the brooder when they were chicks and for the first few weeks in the coop. Once they grew to size we switched over. Very low maintenance now. [img]https://i.imgur.com/2yrJw7Q.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/ZnCxhT4.jpg[/img]...

The nesting boxes are covered. The roofing over them is hinged for easy access. I can support it with the chain on the tall side for convenience. ...

re: Chicken coop build with lots of pics - xrockfordf150x
I agree with the waterer and feeder. I used watering cups and a 5 gallon water jug. It's the big blue thing in the pictures. The automatic cups seemed like a nicer design than the nipples. So far it's worked perfectly. Their feeder is a 25 lb pet food container with locking lid. I purchased some inl...

[quote]Do y’all have kids or grandkids? If yes, I look forward to your post the day they ask for a tree house.[/quote] We weren't half way through with the coop before the wife said that. We have 5 total, but my two young daughters were playing house in the coop everyday before the chickens moved...

[quote]It looks like the roost is near the height of the egg boxes. You might find that chickens will sleep in the boxes and of course poop in them.[/quote] They've been in the coop about a month now and no one has rooted in the boxes. I was a little worried they would. However, our one confirmed...

[quote]Nevermind, looks like you added lag bolts later[/quote] Good eye. Lag bolts were missing at the start of the build. I used deck screws to hold the floor joist in place until I made another trip to the hardware store. 4 5/16" lags per post now. [quote] I would've used some concrete to ...

[quote]If you don’t mind, what’s the total cost on the structure? Came out looking great. [/quote] Of course I used the build as an excuse to buy a few tools on my wish list, so the total price was inflated. If I only consider the lumber, paint, and hardware we're around $1800-$2000...

Chicken coop build with lots of pics - xrockfordf150x
Hello fellow outdoorsmen. For the last 4 years the misses an I have been wanting to start raising chickens. Me being the over engineerer that I am, kept putting it off until I could build a proper structure. I'm not a fan of big box store coops, nor did I want to just throw something flimsy and unas...

re: Done with State Farm - xrockfordf150x
I can vouch for Guffey insurance. They wrote all of my parents policies for decades and have been doing my homeowners/auto for nearly 10 years. Evertime I call I get straight through to Mr. Guffey. I've bought several vehicles and had the insurance policy updated and emailed to me before the dealers...
