Michelles new year’s resolution to have chickens in her humble 1 acre backyard already continuing well into October with this tin roof going on the chicken coop. Her husband, Shannon wants to build a large coop so their (initially three) chicken flock can roost high off the ground. A lighting system inside will hopefully enable the chickens to lay eggs year-round. The coop footprint is 7 1/2 feet by eleven feet. Thought six would be enough but in fact it took 7x two and a half feet wide roofing tin sheets (despite the maths!).
