Solar Powered Coop Article
Great info here on DIY building of a solar powered system for a small coop- Backwoodshome.com
The only thing I beg to differ with the article- with a city lot and urban coop, as we have, if you can't walk out that far to check on your birds, you must have broken legs, IMO. For their health and safety, everyone should check their coop daily. That's how you can keep an eye out for ill or injured birds, and predators. I found a loosened area of our hardware cloth, and realized a cat was out there at night, head butting it to get in. I tightened it up, all fixed.
I read the free, online version of the magazine every month for all kinds of tips, and new ideas. Great site!
