Hi there, new to all of this.
My name is Ruben, I'm in Chesapeake, VA. I just started working on a chicken coop and would love some ideas. So... Maybe someone can help me, I want this to be good for 6 hens. I was thinking of 2 nesting boxes, an easy clean out door, and roost for them. I can either put a nesting box on each side or put the nesting boxes together somewhere in the back with either 3 roosting bars that 2' long or 2 bars that are 4' long. The run itself is 8'x4'. Any ideas with that? The coop size is 2x4 because I'm trying to make it light weight so it can be a tractor. I'm also thinking of putting the PVC Pipes inside as a waterer and feeder. Any thoughts or ideas would be great.
I am also in Chesapeake. I built our coop and learned a lot in the process. Build your nesting box out from the coop, but attached with a hinged door on top (makes getting the eggs easy). Also, on the front, I put a double door to make clean-up easier. Mine is about your size only taller and stationary, although I am moving it over the summer to another area of the yard. I will try to find my pictures and post them up for some ideas to help. I am in the Hickory/Great Bridge area, so if you need help or other idea's let me know.
