Courtesy of Carving a Path Channel - A couple of awesome crafters who started homesteading recently.

Nice thorough tour of a stationary chicken house that is raccoon proof, helps maintain egalitarian pecking order, and even a trick to clean out the coop relatively easily!

They constructed it rather cheaply ($45), since they harvested and milled the wood themselves and they also have the ability to make the hardware through their own blacksmithing skills.

This is really interesting, thank you for sharing. I wonder if its possible to adapt this to a mobile coop.

Yes, I saw this wonderful detailed hen house tour.
Either somewhere else here or elsewhere recently.
I toyed with the idea of their night poop management.
And positioning of all systems.

I like this design.  I assume you might be able to make a better use of the space if you used the area under the roosts as the nest box location.
