A Summer Chicken Coop

Purchased this make shift bar from the thrift store. Stood it on a pallett
The shelves came out pretty easily
Had an old door in the barn. Used it to cut a bottom for the coop
put some left over metal roofing on top
Mounted a bucked on the back wall for a nesting box (wound up removing that later as it was not working out. I included it because you can see it in the photos)
out of boards sandwiched in metal hardwire and made a door
added a perch made out of EMT pipe
Painted the roof blue
and added the chickens
They seem to like it. I am going to put some bantams in there this year

    Doesn't look like anymore chickens can fit in there. Bantam will need another coop. Average is 2 sq ft per chicken tho' less can be used if they only sleep there
