A Bird’s-eye View of Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ

To understand the layout of the chicken coop, let’s start with a bird’s-eye view of the entire Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ setup. The coop, bunny hutch, chicken run, and tool shed all have their designated spaces in what is known as the “Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ Farm.” The farm is designed to complement the overall style of the home and landscape while creating a cozy atmosphere for both the humans and the feathered residents.

The Coop “Floorplan”

Now, let’s dive into the details of the chicken coop itself. The coop measures 7′ x 11′ and is primarily supported by sturdy 6″ x 6″ posts at each corner, securely anchored in the ground. The structure is built using 2x4s, with 2x8s at the base and 2x6s at the top. Its foundation consists of a dirt floor with hardware cloth sunk 12-18 inches into the ground on all sides to deter critters from digging in.

Inside the coop, you’ll find a cozy bunny hutch occupying one-third of the space. The hutch is separated from the chicken area by a partition wall made of chicken wire. The bunny hutch features a lounge area, watering platform, and a play/dig space, all connected by ramps.

The remaining two-thirds of the coop are dedicated to the chickens. Here, you’ll find a nesting box enclosure raised off the ground, allowing the chickens access to the “chicken chute” for easy egg collection. The coop also includes a perch, a hanging feeder, and a hanging waterer.

To keep the coop secure, the roof is made of durable tin. Additionally, a board is added to the eave to discourage critters from climbing in. The coop is connected to the chicken run via a 2′ x 3′ “chicken chute” that provides easy access between the two spaces.

The Stylish Chicken Run

The chicken run, measuring approximately 6′ x 6′, is constructed with 2x4s, with 4′ x 4′ posts firmly set in the ground at each corner. The bottom half of the run is protected by hardware cloth sunk into the ground, while the top half is covered in chicken wire. This design ensures that the chickens stay safe and contained while enjoying their outdoor space.
