I won this adorable chicken love sign from Purina and it looks great on the pen! Today we're sharing our newest little hobby coop with you. Screwdriver in hand and doing it alone, wish me luck. All I can say is if there is a will there will be a way! A little maneuvering and my little garden wagon and it was done! Join me today as I share the putting together of this simple little kit from Sam's Club.
Tip* have trash bags ready for all of the soft Styrofoam packing materials. I found that my pullets thought it was a treat and started eating it! Hope they survive to enjoy their new home!
Their old home in the background of this photo, replacing none too soon! My trusty screwdriver from my brother, Stevie & other tools ready to go to work!
The instructions are in pictures only with simple part numbers. Now, I am pretty bad about reading instructions with anything. That suited me perfectly, however, a time or two, I did have to look very hard at the pictures to see exactly what to do.
The other side is attached in same manner. It's easy, I was just enjoying the pretty warm weather and being outside. There are pre-drilled holes as to where the screws will go. I didn't even pull out my drill to do this project, I have a habit of stripping screws anyway! A Phillips screwdriver is all that is needed.
Cute, cute, cute
It is almost done!
Almost dark but they are already scratching in their new pen. It was pretty hectic rounding up the girls! I know, I should have waited until they were roosting, but I was too blame excited to see how they'd react to new pen & coop!
This little project was fun! Easy to build! I don't know how long this little thing will last, hopefully long enough for these pullets to enjoy!
I'll try to remember to update as time goes on as to the life of this coop.
One Important Note*
This coop has no floor
You can also email the company firstname.lastname@example.org and they will send you a PDF of assembly instructions as well.
I did this before opening the huge boxes, because I knew it had rained here for months and I wanted to be prepared to assemble when the weather and time was right.
Should you decide to purchase one for yourself link HERE I will share the run with rooftop gardening soon.
