    [​IMG] had to expand the original design to accomodate 3 generations of chicks I've hatched.120 square feet of ground space.6ft of height. Doorway in between so I can feed and clean the coop. Also the older chicken can be kepted in another area while dealing with the pullets and cockeroos escaping out of the brooder box.
    [​IMG]nesting box on top can hold 7 hens at one time. Brooder underneath at age 4 weeks. Figure this way I can mix the new flock easier at age 8 weeks.

    [​IMG]Original design. I use tarps on all sides to insulate them and as well keep them dry.
