Chicken Door Construction and More Panels Too

Chicken doors

I needed to make a couple chicken doors in the side of the coop today.

It takes me a while to get the body moving in the morning so I started by cutting some rebar for another panel. I set up the panel to weld and then moved to the chicken door project.

I’m building two doors so I can let the chickens into two different pens if I want to. I moved the fence out of the way as it goes between the two doors and would make it harder to work. The panels are easy to move, just cut a couple wires and move it a bit.

Here’s the two doors cut out.doors


Only chicken doors

I didn’t make very neat cuts but it’s only chicken doors. I just cut out the two by fours.doorjob


I cut and screwed in the inside supports for the doors.inside


Good to go

Here’s the finished doors with the pen divider put back in place.finished


Wiring panels

After a good break I cut some more wire for panels and put some of the wire on, but was getting tired out later in the day, so was slowing down.wired


Last project today

I did weld up this last side panel before I ran out of gas and chair hopped for the rest of the day.panel


I did visit my cherry trees several times during the day. They are going fast as the birds are helping me out.

These panels will complete all my side panels but I still have several ceiling panels to make yet.

Tomorrow I hope to get all these panels wired up and installed.

That was my day.
