Learn how to build your own chicken coop at the Bend
Public Libraries during the month of March. Local retired contractor, Fred Olson, will be demonstrating the techniques required to construct a simple coop. Following the demonstration, the coop will be raffled off to a program participant. The programs are free and open to the public.
Olson has led do it yourself programs at the library for the past two years. “The coop is a simple, cost efficient, practical, movable shelter for chickens,” says Olson. Using easy to find materials and a single sheet of plywood, Olson says his design has virtually no waste. “You don’t even need power tools,” says Olson. “But an electric screw driver and circular saw make the project much easier.” Besides doing library presentations, Olson works with his dog, Sir Jeffrey, who is a registered therapy dog.
