We where contacted by a local bird rescue to build a coop. Since they are a rescue and have limited funds my husband modified his normal design to utilize as much of the structure as he could. The rescue could then house as many feathered friends as possible. He raised the chicken coop portion up in order to add a 'Duck Condo' on the bottom. This design looks stunning in person! Nesting box to nesting box is about 7'. Front to back is 3'. The coop is about 6' 5" tall.
