Blake and Lynn were very kind to let us measure and take photos of their coop. Here are some of the photos of great coop features and a “blueprint” of the coop.
Lynn and Blake made their coop from plans they bought online. Below is a gallery of some interior and exterior features of their coop that give you a better idea of what kind of coop they have made.
Smart and Unique Features
The best feature of Blake and Lynn’s coop is the water collection system. Their coop is far from plumbing and instead of installing permanent plumbing which is expensive they have a water collection system. Rain water falls on the roof and is directed into a large water barrel. This has a spigot and hose attached to fill waterers in the coop. (I unfortunately didn’t take enough pictures of this great feature)
Lynn’s trick chickens
There are 7 chickens that share this coop, 2 Light Brahmas, 2 Buff Orpingtons, 1 Barred Plymouth Rock, 1 Gold Laced Wyandotte, 1 Ameraucana. They are big friendly hens. Lynn brought them some egg snack leftovers and they were very excited about it.
