Thanks to Carol Akins for these photos of her ‘gypsy wagon’ coop.
“I built my ‘Coop’ last year. It’s requirements was that it could be moved from the place I was building it to my yard, then 6 months later moved as I built a new house for myself. I thought and thought about it and looked at a lot of coop plans. Then the Idea hit me. I would build a 1/2 scale gipsy wagon! Everthing is exactly half the size of the average wagon. I only started to paint the fancy stuff when the weather turned bad.
I am awaiting this spring to finish the designs on it. I would be glad to tell anyone else how I designed it. I used a lot of 2 x 2’s and 1/2 inch plywood except for the roof which is 1/4 inch plywood.
My two turkins and my cochin bantam love their home, especially the struts as outdoor perches. You see the 3 nests at one end and the feed and water at the other end inside. The base is 3ft by 6ft and the wheels are 14″ wheel barrow wheels.”
