Chicken House and Run 'Chalet de Poulet'

These chicken coop photos have been
sent in by Bret Edwards.

He has used the traditional chicken house and run plans but has added a couple of dormers and hidden lift hatches over nesting boxes. Very ingenious!

Here are the new chicks settling in to their new home (view is from the keeper door). A mixture of Black Australorps, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Buff Orpingtons, New Hampshire reds and Dominiques.

Bret you did a beautiful job. We just finished our chalet using the same design, but not quite as creative as yours.Carl & Mary

How many nesting boxes are in your Chalet? How many chickens live there?
I just got my chicks in the mail on Friday and will be building my house soon. I really like yours..very creative!
Is is moveable?

There were originally 20 chicks going into Brets 'chalet'. I don't know how many nesting boxes there were, but 1 nesting box for every 3-5 hens is about right.
