Alla, Kathleen, and Claudia

We consolidated our separate ideas into one project and this is the last sketch model. The conclusion that we reached was that the shape of the coop be orthogonal for easy construction, nesting box be separate from roosting area in that it can be removed for cleaning, the nesting box be lifted off the ground for easier access, the entire coop have the ability to be transported in pieces or panels that fit in a cargo van, the structure be made of steel angles with opaque plastic on the roof and two side walls and translucent plastic panels on the other sides.

The framework.

The separate panels.

The nesting box.

Viola, a chicken coop makes a great addition to any back yard.
