Thread Starter 

I need some ideas on how to design my chicken coop so can you post your coop pictures? if you do I bow to you!

I haven't updated this thing in forever, jeez, I have 1 hen and chick pair, 7 other adults who lay very well, 5 presumed cockerals and 2 pullets. I also have a Cute little doggie named Sophie, she's in my picture with my two deceased guinea pigs :( I have a pet alligator snapping turtle and a gopher tortise that enjoys being fed, she just lives in the yard.

99.999% of girls would die if Justin...

bought the plans online for $20 from http://www.thegardencoop.com.  We modified the plans to make it bigger. 

Good luck, I know from experience that the planning for chickens and a new coop can be overwhelming.   It will all be worth it in the end.

You call it outdated or old school, I call it common sense and normal!

He is like an eagle that stirs up its nest. It hovers over it little ones. It spreads out it wings to catch them on its feathers.

We would eventually like to plant some pots of sunflowers and other pretty plants around this coop, but here it is right now.
Still a work in progress.  We just built this over the past month.
