Amy in Newtown, Connecticut, sent in this photo of her backyard chicken tractor built using The Garden Ark coop plans. She modified her coop to be a little longer than the original design. Here’s what she wrote:
I had to share my Garden Ark! I had so much fun making it, and the plans were superb. I am certainly a novice, and I had no trouble.
I had a hard time finding the polycarb roofing, so I got fiberglass, and I extended the run ten inches for a bit more room for my four girls. I also added a ramp, which was super easy, a rope in the front for moving it around, and a bittersweet roost to give them an outdoor perching spot.
Thanks, Amy! If you’d like to build your own Garden Ark to house a small flock or grow your existing flock, check out our chicken coop plans here.
