Building a $25 HOMEMADE CHICKEN COOP for My FARM!!! (DIY)



oh good morning lease gentlemen it is pouring rain here in Nebraska sucks I mean it is absolutely just getting it but you don't voice what are you waiting on jr. we got bad things to do boy we got things to do what do you are you going brick lumberyard this is a video that you guys have requested quite a bit something I'm pretty excited to make it is a homemade chicken coop that's the plan today we're gonna make homemade chicken and actually some raised garden beds and we're gonna plant some garden things some food Boswell's always hungry he's always he's always stealing my food so we got to plant some food look at all the dad cars dude there's so many of them just snag one of them we may have to grab two you ever just walk into Lowe's ago doing dad things today smells like that things but yes first I say let's do let's do the garden first at least get the lumber off to get the dirt and everything later we're gonna have so much stuff to bring in farm it's me a lot of stuff so let's do the raised garden bed first and then we'll drink to second we cut in yeah let's just get four to be safe so that would be the side the sides are done two sides then the ends now why do we want them so we should get four two feet is 2 feet high tall enough or do you want to tell them to feet so let's just get one of these mystery so we need to get some garden bedding thingy and actual dirt and plants hey they're on sale though say five bucks those are nice so that they pulled up that's all right all right all right all right it's not part of the challenge but I need one I need sawhorses these are really expensive but they fold up so I feel like I should get them nice and compact okay let's just do five five by three so I name three wide is good yeah and 50s plenty well we don't need price 50 actually this this is weed barrier we don't really need it I mean we kind of needed we don't really need it well there's no weeds it was just to hold the dirt in if you don't have enough you think we buy enough wood that's the only thing we didn't buy enough wood then we need this we did buy enough but we don't need this okay so let's just get this and let's just get a little extra chicken wire and we'll be good to buy 2:36 now we're on to the chicken coop we have four two by two by 36 spindles are like like these are they're really nice what that hang Spears I think so we need forty four inch and a half all this extra well just buy a hundred sixty-four because I might run out 200 inch 1/2 inch long staples and a staple don't need that and that's 1,200 I only need 200 electric staple nail gun okay well it's a nail gun too sheesh staples done here we go so this is kind of like an optional part you could just make this out of plastic by the way I got this idea from alumna Akers youtuber big fan Lemna and basically copying your entire video so shoutout to you he used plastic like literally a plastic water bottle for this to cut the cost but I'm gonna actually use like real hinges just so I don't end up breaking them so this is kind of like an optional part you guys are following along and whatnots it's not necessary if you really trying to save money you don't need to get this but today we're getting there and I see I made them out of plastic these are expensive yeah again we're not queer not putting this into the factor of the cost because this is totally optional it's just what we're gonna do make it the correct way but it's not the cheapest way we should just get 24 by 24 is wait why is 24 50 feet why is that Scheffer poultry netting got everything that exact same it's cheaper your chickens gonna get through that let's get that what is he just taking a break up there what is over here just like hmm I'm gonna try sit down for this okay so we need 12 let's just get like a couple extra get like 14 all right well you guys are trying to do stuff cheap get dog-eared fence thanks it's a lot cheaper than this but I'm too lazy to go return it so we're just gonna buy it anyway stop that no it's actually a lot more these were 12 yeah these were 10 in those row doc damn I don't know what's going on I feel like I just spent way too much money well 13 should be 12 no this should be 12 with one you want a bag yeah well back on the stock like this oh yeah hey mates at the farm folks finally look our ward made it doesn't make you feel good feel good about it look at that sure yours you ever heard of a heme iron well you gotta get this on and going it's lunchtime already folks we literally just got started with our day and it's already lunchtime let's get this on and going well got the weiners what are they brought got brats on the grill you haven't asked Ito's out here so about this little squirt gun actually Austin bought it you know the thing is battery-powered what do you think the odds this works we're going sniper-style long-range I just cover this area do you think all the mosquitoes will stay away what are the odds Oh I'll let you eat it first okay all right we're done I think it's done yeah ha very good dude this is what do you what do you ever see them tweets I'm always referencing something this struggle meal yeah that's a trouble me all right there side straight up someone one slice of Wonder Bread with a little mustard on bratwurst ketchup will be good good here we go folks we starting to build we're do the garden first they were new the chicken coop we did not buy soil and plants today Lowe's didn't have the plants we wanted in we figured hey let's just get it all once nobody separate vlog if you guys enjoy the garden videos oh let me know in the comment section below and if you enjoy the homemade chicken coop style videos we don't have chickens clearly but you have to have a chicken coop before you get chicken so we're thinking about getting chickens just for meat bird sees obviously the chicken coop watch and say obviously the joob you're gonna see later is not for egg-laying chickens it's for meat birds so we're gonna get started here like I said if you guys enjoy these types of us I mean the comment section down below and we'll keep doing it so let's get to work Bob Bob the Builder all right so we're gonna measure this I think this is probably 10 10 10 ish so we need to break that down in fourths what's 10 divided by 4 2 and 1/2 freaking scholars out here so 2 and 1/2 would be right there that's one and you go half and then you go for and you go full and then you go 1/2 1 2 3 I think you did 2 and 1/2 is 10 yeah but but this right here what you do right here half oh I did a foot and a half yeah I'm an idiot I was like I don't think that's where it should be okay we're good yes I thought I was smart yeah he goes freakin scholars on the grammar square carpenter square I wouldn't exactly call it even you think it's gonna matter primate OHS won't care my tomatoes won't care listen I'm not a craftsman yeah that's pretty much all I got to say I am a wannabe everything and I'm really bad at most of it all right step two well we got the post done step two these boards are 10 feet long so we got to cut them in half cuz we're gonna do a 5 by 3 section or that's gonna be our race garden I guess so we're gonna cut these cut two of them in half that'll be our sides and then we got to do the other sides and we start piecing it all together so far not doing too bad you got anarchy whenever no that's all you you put it up there son well we got the sides done you can see right here these are the long sides now we gotta do the short sides we're gonna do now you broke it now we're gonna do three feet so it's gonna be six by three I messed up I said it's five by two and a half these boards are 12 feet we're just stupid so we're doing six by three so we need to cut that thing into four four equal pieces put them all together and then just start start drilling on stuff but so far I mess it up well this guy if he has a visual idea of what we're doing we've got four posts and then we're gonna have to add more site so we add depth to it but essentially we're gonna do this build it all screw it all together then flip it up and then we'll have to fill in the bottom but so far I think it's looking decent it's definitely not straight I don't tell you how much we'll fix that looks good see this side looks way better then you get over here it's like well it's like Angie did this side or something that guy you know that's whatever I knew I messed up and oscillators see Lisa unscrewed I could've just unscrewed it but it'll hold everything dirts that heavy so we're good so we got to another another layer so we can get some deeper so we don't we don't want six inches of dirt we want 12 dang-son kill him it we killed the game well the one thing we realized is we didn't think through the bottom throw Lee we thought about it like for half a second so we don't have enough wood essentially if you wanted to finish this what you would do is you would take that wood that we bought just like this and you would cut the insides 36 outsides 38 so you got an end to end each side so you do 38 and you just do like planks all the way across like this and screaming from the bottom and that would give you your bottom but we didn't buy enough wood for that we were thinking we're gonna do like just a few supports and then some chicken wire and stuff we didn't buy the right chicken wire for that so we don't know what we're thinking essentially this is how you build a raised garden bed we'll finish the bottom of it in a different video probably after we go get more wood but comment down below what should we plant what do you guys want to see you as we see some tomato I like tomatoes cucumbers chilapa nose bell peppers let me know in the comment section down below what should we plant but this review ain't over folks we got to go build chicken coop alright time for the chicken coop step 1 take two of these whips thing called dog ear fence pickets or something cheap wood two of these and then two of your spindles and that's it for right now 30 and 3/8 right there there you go folks step one step is a surprise step three got some wood glue so we've got them spaced out all the way 72 interested he's gonna be one one side so we gotta do this twice so I'm gonna lift this thing up smear a little bit of wood glue on there just for extra safety put that right down yonder you don't want the chickens to escape there yeah yeah we got two of the walls now the guy do is put the crossbeams on everything looks somewhat symmetrical so now we scrab a couple of these and take over here put across like this right there and then one at the bottom and one on the other side about halfway done this is actually really fast and we've actually parallel Emma did this for about 15 minutes we're about halfway done well it didn't break where'd that wind come from all right well we got all the sides up four sides now we got to get the chicken wire on the sides and then we're gonna do the roof and the latch and the hatch and the thing er but now we got to get what do we have this is um this is 24-inch 50 foot long large hex galvanized for durability poultry netting so we're gonna basically just wrap around the whole thing and just staple gun around the whole thing so the chickens of escape we got chicken wire on boys that was step 17 and a half we got chicken wire now time for the roof this is where some some of it kind of gets a little complicated yes grab you don't grab a measuring tape on some so remember these little things that you chopped off you gotta save them so these this is what we're gonna have to use them for supports here we're gonna go from this we're gonna go up to 36 inches make a mark now I gotta be there excited the same thing what you're gonna wanna do is you're gonna take these guys you're gonna line up this edge here flush like this and actually this or we can use some glue and some clamps all right so we're gonna do is take some glue spread it on there like that and then just line it up about flush get the clamp on it this clamp will help hold it in place glue me brother next up put some glue on top like that next step cut one of these suckers your full-size piece of wood here cut it in half to 36 inches oh dang son frickin measured it perfectly alright next step we're working on the door so it's important to make to leave a gap right here otherwise your doors gonna get caught so probably do like a like 3/8 of an inch okay so once you leave the gap take your gun alright good old fashioned door hinges we're gonna install these guys while Austin's getting chicken wire situated I think that'll work so you need three extra support close enough hey it works alright we got two more steps I actually I've made an adjustment didn't show you guys put another support here I get the original video that I got this idea from didn't do that he put them in the front I definitely miss measured but it ended up working out to where you know this is supportive so now honestly all that's left we got to put chicken wire here on the door and chicken wire on this back half that's not the door so this is not the door this will stay covered and then this is where you can access it and all the other stuff so all right final test boom this is a trick get in there bombs what you act like a chicken you look like the most like a chicken between us off you look he already got white shirt on he's like a white meat chicken that's what meat chickens are they're white I mean I'm sure they're multiple colors so when he's naughty do this just fast in a little walking mechanism here see if he's just I could not get out may be fine and then it's like here Bonsall here's your food chica chica here's your water cheek and then when it rains you just put a tarp over it or you put you put a tarp over the back half so when it rains they can kind of get back and then this is what you do so so bombs look grazes he's gonna be grazing and eventually you know maybe after a few days it's gonna look browner here so then it's simple you just do this you just move it you move it ten feet and then they grace and then you move it another 10 feet and then they graze it's called a chicken tractor but hey if you guys want to build this we actually totaled up 25 bucks if you're really trying we spent maybe 40 maybe 50 but that's cuz I mean I spending $8 on hinges and I got chicken more chicken wire than necessary and everything else but essentially if you're really ballin on a budget 25 bucks you can do it and you could honestly if you really know what you're doing you could probably build it in probably 30 minutes took us about maybe three or four hours not really it took us like right – this is how you build a chicken coop for under 25 bucks 25 bucks get my give or give or take five bucks hope you guys learned something I will link the video though that I got this idea for him cuz he's way better at filming and way better at teaching and he's loaded I mean I literally copied it won't like line for line except mine does not look nearly as good it says so clear I messed up somewhere but I will link that down the description below if you guys wanna go check out his video if you really are trying to make this you're gonna wanna go check out this video this video is just kind of like a my half-assed college attempt the college try attempt I'm making one and well I guess we got to get some chickens now thank you guys so much for watching peace

Free Update Content with TwoDollarsTwenty | Cities: Skylines Industries Tutorial Part 7



g'day guys tell us 20 here and welcome back to City skylines industries this is gonna be the last tutorial from me and I'm gonna spend it looking at the new content that comes with the free updates I'm gonna start by checking out the new toll booths which will raise extra revenue for the city however will also create extra congestion on the roads so to avoid this only replacing them around the outskirts of the city you can find the toll booths in the road section under the very own tab and there's four to choose from I'm placing mine on a three lane highway so I'm gonna choose the four lane toll booth and place two going in either direction once I've done that I'm gonna waste my money placing down some trees and then I can actually change the price of the tickets when I click on the building and use the slider to decrease or increase the ticket price another cool feature with the free update is the ability to make buildings historical you can make a building historical by clicking on it and then clicking the historical building button and this would mean the building will continue to level up by won't actually change its appearance I'm gonna do this around my downtown to keep the skyline looking quite prominent and the rest of the buildings much lower down and I'm also gonna do this for buildings that I just like the look of and when I keep that look in the city the last feature I want to talk about is something that is quite interesting and allies within the map theme editor and this feature allows you to create custom name lists for your map theme the really cool thing about this is you can really customize the names of pretty much anything that spawns in your city ranging from industrial buildings to commercial buildings to people to districts you really have a lot of freedom making these names and I think it's going to make for some really interesting and unique map themes down the track but guys that is it for these tutorials I really had a lot of fun exploring the new industries DLC and I just want to say big thanks to Paradox Interactive for asking me to collaborate with them I hope these tutorials are been useful and I look forward to seeing your creations in the near future I'll see you later

The economic reason this chicken producer gave up antibiotics



JUDY WOODRUFF: Next: the final installment
of our special series Stopping Superbugs, which this week focused on the potential dangers
of antibiotic use in industrial-scale farming. Last night, science correspondent Miles O'Brien
paid a visit to a pig farm. Tonight, economics correspondent Paul Solman
picks up our reporting by checking on how things are done on a commercial chicken farm. It's part of our weekly economics feature,
Making Sense. PAUL SOLMAN: Why are you knocking? BRUCE STEWART-BROWN, Veterinarian, Perdue
Farms: I'm letting the chickens know we're coming. PAUL SOLMAN: A chicken house in Salisbury,
Maryland. Holy smokes. How many chickens are in here? BRUCE STEWART-BROWN: So, there's about 49,000. PAUL SOLMAN: Forty-nine thousand? BRUCE STEWART-BROWN: But you can see there's
plenty of space for them to move to open areas if they'd like to. PAUL SOLMAN: Veterinarian Bruce Stewart-Brown
oversees poultry production for a brand some of you may have grown up with. FRANK PERDUE, CEO, Perdue Farms: Every Perdue
chicken has one of these tags on it. PAUL SOLMAN: Frank Perdue became famous as
the tough man to make a tender chicken. MAN: You might wonder what drives a man like
this. PAUL SOLMAN: But an even tougher man raised
him. MAN: Me. PAUL SOLMAN: Back in the 1920s, Arthur Perdue
founded not just a hugely successful business, but some would say an entire industry. ELLEN SILBERGELD, Johns Hopkins University:
And this is ground zero to the chicken industry and in fact to all of intensive agriculture. It all began here. PAUL SOLMAN: Johns Hopkins University environmental
scientist Ellen Silbergeld is author of "Chickenizing Farms and Food," which chronicles the rise
of factory farming. We need it to feed the world, she says, but
not by feeding low doses of antibiotics to livestock, supposedly to promote growth or
prevent disease before it happens. ELLEN SILBERGELD: Between 70 and 80 percent
of total antibiotic production is used in agriculture. PAUL SOLMAN: And is the use in agriculture
creating as much resistance in the bacteria as the use with humans? ELLEN SILBERGELD: I think it's arguably creating
more. When bacteria are exposed to low doses of
antibiotics, bacteria are stressed, but not killed. And the community sends out signals whereby
they share resistance genes. PAUL SOLMAN: Really? ELLEN SILBERGELD: Yes. So, actually low-dose antibiotics over a long
period of time are much worse than high-dose. PAUL SOLMAN: Much worse, says Silbergeld,
in that they expose workers and consumers to rapidly evolving antibiotic-resistant microbes,
perhaps in the very air we were breathing near this chicken house in Sussex County,
Delaware. ELLEN SILBERGELD: We and others have done
studies where we have tracked the outflow from these ventilation fans, and we can find
antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are genetically identical to the bacteria inside the house
as far away as essentially three football fields. And, furthermore, there are flies and other
things that come in and out of the house, and they can move as far as three miles away. PAUL SOLMAN: Flies and fans spreading microbes
that, under the right conditions, can cause serious illness, even death. ELLEN SILBERGELD: We are coming up against
the end of the age of antibiotics, exhausting what many have called the crown jewels of
medicine. And, if I may say, we're throwing them like
pearls before swine. PAUL SOLMAN: And you mean that… ELLEN SILBERGELD: Literally. PAUL SOLMAN: As my colleague Miles O'Brien
reported last night, antibiotics are routinely fed to pigs and cattle, which live a lot longer
than chickens, a practice microbiologist Lance Price understands, even if he doesn't condone
it. LANCE PRICE, Molecular Microbiologist: Pigs
spend their entire lives in these concentrated animal feeding operations, crowded, stressed,
standing around on their own feces. They're just more likely to get sick. PAUL SOLMAN: For chickens, it all started
in the 1940s, with some pharmaceutical industry studies purporting to show that antibiotics
promoted growth. ELLEN SILBERGELD: These are studies that were
all conducted within laboratories. They were not in the real world situation
of a chicken houses. They were for very short periods of time,
two to seven weeks. PAUL SOLMAN: How many in a study? ELLEN SILBERGELD: Thirty would be a big study. PAUL SOLMAN: Thirty chickens? ELLEN SILBERGELD: Most of them were four or
five. PAUL SOLMAN: On this flimsy foundation, argues
Silbergeld, was a match formed between big pharma and big farm. JIM PERDUE, Chairman, Perdue Farms: I think
the industry used antibiotics because they just always did. PAUL SOLMAN: Jim Perdue is the third generation
to run the family business. For decades, Perdue's poultry, like almost
all chickens, were raised on antibiotics. JIM PERDUE: There was a perception that they
would grow better if you gave them antibiotics, because it would, for lack of a better word,
clean up the gut and absorb nutrients more efficiently. PAUL SOLMAN: But the evidence really wasn't
there. JIM PERDUE: But you do a lot of things that
you have been doing forever, and you just assume that's the way you do it, until you
actually look at it and test it. PAUL SOLMAN: In 2002, Perdue farms did just
that, publishing the results of a three-year experiment involving millions of birds. Half were raised on antibiotics, the other
half not. ELLEN SILBERGELD: The data basically showed
there was little or no difference. PAUL SOLMAN: Silbergeld then asked economists
to calculate how much bang Perdue was getting for its antibiotics buck, the standard cost-benefit
analysis at the heart of economics. ELLEN SILBERGELD: A return on investment,
yes. And the results showed that they were actually
losing money by purchasing antibiotics. PAUL SOLMAN: But their own study wasn't what
turned Perdue against maintenance antibiotics, the latest scion says. JIM PERDUE: We did it because the consumer
was asking for it. PAUL SOLMAN: Fifteen years later, all chicken
sold under the Perdue brand has been raised with no antibiotics ever. JIM PERDUE: If you say no antibiotics that
are important to humans, there is a but, or no antibiotics except subtherapeutic. That's a but. PAUL SOLMAN: But it wasn't easy, nor was it,
as they say in chicken, cheep. Step one, says Perdue's chief vet, Bruce Stewart-Brown,
was to ramp up their hatchery hygiene. BRUCE STEWART-BROWN: If there's a piece of
organic material, just wipe it off, and use a different spot and, then turn it over, use
another spot, and then get rid of it, and get a new one. PAUL SOLMAN: A new baby wipe, that is. They use a lot of baby wipes. DAVID BAILEY, Hatchery Manager: We process
four days a week. PAUL SOLMAN: David Bailey is hatchery manager. DAVID BAILEY: For one week, I need 1,451,520
eggs. PAUL SOLMAN: Step two, make sure the vaccine
that goes into every egg is uncontaminated. Previously, a vaccine to prevent a chicken
viral disease was mixed in the middle of the hatchery, with antibiotics added to kill common
bacteria. BRUCE STEWART-BROWN: And so this is the vaccine
mixing room, and we actually put laminar flow hoods, special air flow. That keeps the vaccine from getting any contamination
even in this controlled environment. PAUL SOLMAN: Step three, a vegetarian diet,
to replace the antibiotic-laced feed. JIM PERDUE: We got rid of meat and bone meal,
because that introduced salmonella and other things into the diet. PAUL SOLMAN: And now they're experimenting
with lifestyle changes, including increased playtime in a handful of hen houses, on the
theory that it takes a happier home to grow a healthier chicken. BRUCE STEWART-BROWN: Play is a little bit
down right now. They're resting quite a bit. PAUL SOLMAN: Can't we just go, hey, chickens,
be active? Turns out, to my embarrassment, that this
isn't how chickens like to kid around. BRUCE STEWART-BROWN: That's scaring them. PAUL SOLMAN: OK, guys, sorry. I apologize. I thought I was playing. Perdue is succeeding antibiotic-free. But with all the concern and dire warnings,
how is it that an estimated 70 percent of the industry is still raising birds on antibiotics? ACTOR: Some chicken brands use labels to trick
people and charge higher prices. ACTOR: Raised without antibiotics. ACTOR: That's just marketing-speak. PAUL SOLMAN: Mississippi-based Sanderson is
the nation's third largest chicken producer, just ahead of number four Perdue. They say most of their customers don't much
care if they eat chicken raised on antibiotics. MIKE COCKRELL, CFO, Sanderson Farms: Across
the Southeast, where most of our brand — branded product is sold, it's simply not that big
of an issue. PAUL SOLMAN: And, says chief financial officer
Mike Cockrell, while it's nice to sell antibiotics-raised chicken at a lower price, that's not why they
use the drugs. They want to be fair to the fowl. MIKE COCKRELL: If I can prevent illness in
the flock, we're going to do that. LAMPKIN BUTTS, President, Sanderson Farms:
We sat down with our vets and asked our vets to do their homework. PAUL SOLMAN: Company president Lampkin Butts. LAMPKIN BUTTS: And tell us whether anything
we're doing with antibiotics in our flocks causes antibiotic resistance in humans. And they did the research, and they came back
and said, absolutely not. PAUL SOLMAN: So, we asked chief veterinarian
Phil Stayer, doesn't the use of antibacterial drugs in animals raise the possibility that
there will be resistance in bacteria and other organisms that will come back to haunt human
beings? PHIL STAYER, Chief Veterinarian, Sanderson
Farms: Using antibiotics will induce resistance in any organism. The question is, what does food animal medicine
in particular have to do with contributing to that? And I think that risk is so small, we can't
measure it. PAUL SOLMAN: The scientists we have talked
to say there's a real danger in using antibacterial drugs in animals like chickens. MARTHA EWING, Veterinarian, Sanderson Farms:
We talk to scientists as well. PAUL SOLMAN: Veterinarian Martha Ewing. MARTHA EWING: But we have our own scientists
who say that if we get a bacterial infection in chickens that's serious enough to warrant
another antibacterial, it's very possible it may actually induce more resistance. PAUL SOLMAN: It sounded like the red state/blue
state divide. PHIL STAYER: University of Minnesota, Kansas
State University, they can't find a link in terms of human resistance based upon food
animal use. PAUL SOLMAN: While the elite East Coast schools
have. So we asked Ellen Silbergeld of Johns Hopkins,
is it your word against their word? ELLEN SILBERGELD: No, it is not. And, if I may say so, I'm very tired of the
press who says, on the one hand, and on the other. PAUL SOLMAN: But you do understand that somebody
in my position, who can't possibly assess one study from the next, or one journal from
the next, you can understand why I would be trying to be, on the one hand, on the other
hand? ELLEN SILBERGELD: You know, at a certain point,
this is rocket science. PAUL SOLMAN: OK, so what am I supposed to
do if it is rocket science? Fortunately, I had someone else to turn do. You're the guy who covers rocket science. So, am I just out of my depth here? MILES O'BRIEN: I'm afraid it is rocket science. And the scientists I speak with are practically
apocalyptic about a post-antibiotic era. Think of the procedures that could not happen. Chemotherapy, Caesarean sections, hip replacements,
all of them absolutely rely on antibiotics. So imagine a world where we can't have those
procedures and where people die of simple blisters, as occurred, not uncommonly, in
the pre-antibiotic era. PAUL SOLMAN: But we don't want to scare people. This isn't happening right now. Most antibiotics still work for most problems
that people have. MILES O'BRIEN: But the numbers are grim. And it is time to do something right now. The alarm bells are ringing. PAUL SOLMAN: And, from my point of view, the
problem is that the market hasn't been able to solve this problem. Maybe it cannot solve this problem, and, therefore,
we need alternative solutions. For the "PBS NewsHour" this is economics correspondent
