Well the basic needs in a chicken coop are the following: nesting boxes, roosting bars, room enough so they are not cramped, and ventilation. Also make sure it is predator proof. But I advise posting in the http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/9/coop-run-design-construction-maintenance forum for more help. Also do you plan on getting chicks or hens in the beginning?
