for many years we used this former children's play house that we found for free on the side of the road nearby where we lived in Massachusetts (that was 7 years ago)
Having to stoop over to clean it, put in the food and water and gather the eggs made it rather difficult and uncomfortable.
Mike built an attachment on to the small rustic barn that was here when we bought our property. He used hemlock from our homestead and rough sawed lumber from a small mill down the road
They have a much larger fenced in area to romp.
But what I love most is that I can stand upright and walk around the inside coop!
Who would have thought it would be exciting to be able to scrape the poop into a bucket with a hoe - - - gather the eggs with out banging my head - - - and the chickens have lots more space.
