Deep litter is great, but it is not necessarily just 1 or 2 liter changes a year! You need to change it when it needs to be changed, and that is when it starts to smell of ammonia!!!!! That will happen more or less frequent depending on the climate you live in! So don't assume that you will only have to be concerned with the litter 1 or 2 times a year until you know that is going to be the case! If you let the ammonia get to high it can make your chickens sick or even kill them!

Great design! We hope to get out of the the suburbs eventually so we can take advantage of projects like this. Did you have to bury and set the legs in concrete? How hard was it to move?

Great job!! It gets cold in Texas? 🙂

Old linoleum is good for the bottom of the coop to make it easier to scrap out the chicken manure…

Matt Tolman says:

Don't you have to replace the wood floor at some point?

Peter Curtis says:

To keep the snakes out! I am never coming to America. I will not sleep tonight thinking about snakes in the chicken shed. Thanks for the vid, great as usual.

Lone Star says:

Wow! Skilled and beautiful all in one package!!

RuggedHomestead says:

Love the coop! Built my own a year ago and I would recommend adding a few more "steps" to the ramp to give the chickens more places to grip as they're climbing up and down. The angle may also be a little steep too. Looks great otherwise.
