Back in hack #4, I built a chicken tractor for some chickens I had purchased. Well what started out as six chickens has since been reduced to three. One got eaten by a Fox and two fell victim to one of my dogs. The dogs have since learned to co-habitate with the chickens and they’re getting along fine now. The chickens are laying fresh eggs on a daily basis which I really enjoy eating and sharing with friends.
They’re full grown chickens now and they really needed a new shelter for the coming winter month so for this week’s project I built them a new bigger chicken coop!
In this video I go through all the steps it took to build a 4′ x 4′ chicken coop with three nesting chambers. It has a door on the back which makes it very easy to gather the eggs daily.
All the animals make an appearance in this video so enjoy, and keep on hackin!
