A few months ago, we bought a chicken coop from some neighbors that are moving. We had priced out building our own chicken coop, but realized for the size we wanted, it was out of our budget. So we were super excited when we found out our neighbors were selling theirs for such a great price. It isn't the cutest, but the price was right.
I knew that I wanted a red chicken coop, so off to Home Depot I went. I was in search of THE perfect barn red. If you have ever painted anything red, you know what a nightmare it can be. Getting a red that isn't too orange, too pink, too light, or too dark is hard. As I walked into the paint section, I spotted it from across the counter, and when I pulled the paint chip and it said "barn" I knew it was fate telling me, that was THE perfect barn red. Martha Steward really know her colors!
I have a few other things that I want to do to it, like add some trim around the door. Eventually the goats will be fenced in with the girls, so I want to add a little doggie door so the girls can go in and out as the please, but the goats will stay out.
The run is back behind the coop.
Don't you just love tail feathers blowing in the wind?
My favorite, Basil.
Do you have any coop design ideas for me?
