I am just beginning this wonderful new adventure of raising chickens and am looking forward to learning much from this site. 6 of my peeps (red rangers)are just over a week old and my other three (2 lavender and one black Orpington) are a couple days younger. I have been searching for a coop. I found someone on craigslist who builds beautiful coops, but my husband is of the opinion that the cost is too much. It is a very well built shaker style 4x5 and the interior height is about 5'6" at the peak. The legs of the coop are 4x4 posts and the coop is elevated, I guess less than a foot high off the ground. I have zero skills at building and my husband, while very capable, is on a PICC line and cannot build me one.
