A Water Tower Chicken Coop

A Water Tower Chicken Coop
Story and Photos by Michael Gay For six weekends, Michael Gay worked away in his backyard in Sylvania, Georgia, to build their backyard coop, one their friends have named, “The Taj Majal.” While it might not have a solid gold roof, it does have a water tower that collects rain, complete with a painting made for the 12 chickens, and a separation fence to allow for easier integration of new and old flock mates. The painting, finished by Michael’s fiance Joanna Bastarache, helped cover the rudimentary, but completely functional, water tower, which started as a 30-gallon plastic trash barrel and some PVC pipe. “Boy was it ugly,” reported Mr. Gay. With some friend’s donated scrap metal and some metal bolts — and Joanna’s paints — they dressed it up a bit. Coop Questions?
