Well, you have seen the first pictures of the coop I am building. Thanks for your comments. I’m waiting for thunder storms to clear so that I can open it for pictures of the inside and better pictures of the rear. Again it is still under construction. I appreciate your interest.
While I wait, I want to share the “cage” [tunnel] I built to move the girls from the sand box of the coop to their home run. It is a dual function box, also serving as a container to lift them from the coop to the chicken tractor where they can feast on grass, bugs, and so forth in a controlled and protected area.
Nothing fancy here, just pine sealed with the clear waterproofing sealant used on my raised vegetable bins and the coop. I have sliding door of Lexan [from the Fargo Gage—recycling]. Simply lift the door on the end you want to open to allow the chickens to pass through. I’m thinking this cage can function for any animal that can be constrained by chicken wire [made of plastic these days].
