    I have recently discovered SketchUp by google so I designed a chicken coop that I am going to begin building in a few weeks. I have all the materials that I will need to complete this build including the porta hut that I will use as the roof. I am planning on getting 15 brown sex-link pullets and one or two brown sex-link roosters to live in the coop once I get it built.

    I have two dog runs that I am using as the run for chickens. The panels are 10'X7'.

    This is a picture of the underside of coop and how I am going to frame it.

    I originally planned to have four nesting boxes but I might end up adding some depending if I have enough materials.

    I am going to have a ladder going up to the roosts.

    Along with the nesting boxes I might add more roosting space if I have enough materials.

    This is the "framing" in the front of the coop where I am going to have to secure the porta hut to.(Still do not know how I am going to go about that)

    I will add updates when I start building. If y'all see anything that doesn't look like it will work comment to let me know.

    Thanks.
