I had originally built the smaller coop for a single breed: Brahmas. Lost every single one over a 3 year period to unknown causes and raccoons. When Conan (2 year old rooster) deposed his dad, Mr. Feathers, earlier this year and had him cowering in the dark corners of the barn, I moved Mr. Feathers over there and then decided to use it as a broody breaker pen. Turns out it makes a fantastic grow-out coop too, so I'll just keep it for that purpose going forward. It's cute. My plans are to move to my property in Pine Valley community in 4+ years, so I'm thinking we'll give it a real good clean and repaint the insides, then the new people can decide whether to use it as a coop or kids playhouse.
