Large backyard solar equipped Chicken run and hen box - $800 (Eugene)

I have over $1500 in materials, the auto doors were $400 alone.
Great off grid system that has 2 photo sensing doors that allow hens to free range in the morning and come back into a closed door protected run and hen box. Each door is timed a half hour apart. It's never left a hen outside and the 1/2 stainless wire has never allowed an intruder in. Auto feeder and water lasts for weeks! Great to fill before vacation and come back to tons of eggs or have the neighbors pull eggs when they want them. Hen box supports 6 chickens, has 3 laying boxes that are easy access from outside and 2 large clean out doors with vinyl flooring. Hen run is 14 feet with under box shade and had a sun tuff roof for rain. Several swings and toy hangers to keep them busy if you choose to leave them in. Could be converted to a chicken tractor by adding 2 wheels at the hen box end and move around your property for meat birds.

It's been a very efficient set-and-forget system , just load with food every week or so and water every 2. Super simple, solar powered with a truck battery backup and works great.

Can haul on my car trailer but will need a few guys to lift it.
