This entire thing is taking longer than I thought it would. This is because the CIT’s now are working hard on their shadowing (following various staff), so I had to finish a lot of details by myself. But, since I only have one staple gun, this was ok. They were part of the critical segments of holding up the wood and screwing.
From this view, you can see the area under the coop with a shady area during hot sun, and the open hardware cloth side for the chicks. Inside of the coop (only for the night), I hung two perches off the floor. This way, the chicks can hang out above the floor of the coop. Chicks love to roost.
Finally, I put in a test chick (now around 8 weeks), just to see if they know how to behave. Since they were raised indoors in the brooder box, and forced to live in battery cages for a few weeks, I wanted to see how they would react. Even though this wasn’t ideal, they needed to wait for chicken paradise!
