I will soon be building or buying a coop for 3 or 4 chickens located in Minnesota near Minneapolis. The birds will need coop and run as required by my city. Can not be free range. We currently do have a fence around our property to keep most things out or at least our dog in, you can look at it either way. Between the dog (BullMastiff) and fence most creatures stay away from yard. Do have raccoons, and supposedly coyote or foxes in area though. I am confident in my building skills but not looking for something with any fancy detail. Very open to suggestions and plans as I hope to start building within the week. Might throw in some raised vegetable gardens since I will be out working in the yard anyway.
Thank you in advance for any assistance!
