Le Grand Poulailler
Yesterday, E.Shrew and I worked hard all day building a chicken pen and a roost for the chickens. We initially wanted to construct the grandest chicken coop ever made, but five minutes in that hot Louisiana summer sun, and we were like "fuck it!"
After a few redesigns and trips back and forth to Home Depot, we finally built something that we are proud of. It is simple and neat. It works. Notice that we are using two plastic "Saw Horses" to build the legs for the coop. The chickens nest on top of their incubator pens. I can even go ahead and get some more baby chicks and house them right in the incubator pens. Their coop is protected from the sun and rain on top by two sheets of tin. Today, we have to secure that tin roof and do something with chicken wire over the rest of the pen.
