Hi All, I'm a new member here and thought I would share pics and progress of my 1st coop build. My family and I are located in Kodiak, AK small remote island just South West of the Kenai Penisula. We have a mild climate comparable to Seattle lots of rain as we are a coastal community, but it does get pretty cold here as well. This is our first adventure with chickens mainly for fun and a hobby for the family. I'm looking for oportunities for after I retire from the military and maybe chicken farming will be the ticket, mainly want to work for myself and this will give me a chance to see how I like chickens. On to the run. It is in the works and the pics attached are the first 2 days of work about 6 to 8 hours worth. The coop will be 6'X6' and the attached run will be 6'X6' so a total of 6'X12'. The front wall is 8' tall and the back wall is 7'6" tall so the roof will be a lean to type with a covering for coop and run out of metal. Planning on a door for the run and coop each, our nesting boxes will be enclosed inside to keep everything warmer than the possible outside temp. We are planning on the 6 Fowl Stuff nesting boxes made from the 5 gallon buckets (if anyone has experiance with these in put would be great), there will be plenty of roosting space of course. We are planning on 10 to 15 birds at this time, trying to plan for losses due to the heavy population of Bald Eagles here. Let me know what you think any suggestions would be great and I'll try to post new pics daily as work continues. Doug This is the First wall panel, built on a modular type design. This is the first wall panel standing in place. this is the second wall panel standing in place. This is quiting time at 5:24 pm.
