My favorite outbuilding on our farm is a chicken coop with clerestory windows that I intend to use as a combined henhouse and potting shed. The chickens will be in the lower section, with a ramp leading out to a fenced yard.
Today we decided to work on the chicken coop. We won't be ordering chicks for a couple of months yet, but we discovered a local farmer with young laying hens for sale and we are thinking of getting six of them so we can have eggs this spring.
We needed a partition inside to separate the chickens from the potting shed. Conveniently, we had a wall section already constructed that Cadence had knocked down in her Granary Guesthouse project and wanted out of there.
Cadence sledged-hammered the top brace off so we could fit the wall through the chicken coop doorway.
It still required some tricky maneuvering and a bit of brute force to get it inside.
Rog and Cadence set the wall on top of a foundation row of cement blocks and secured it to the wall. Now all we need is a door into the chicken room and some chicken wire across the top! Oh, and some bedding...and roosts..and nesting boxes...and the Chickens!
