    I have just started building chicken coops for a month now and loving it. This 3ftx4ft Winchester coop is amazing. it holds up to 4-7 chickens, but many of my customers say it can hold 8.

    It comes with a clean out drawer, A man door on the side, 4 cute hand made windows, 4 egg boxes, 4 perches inside, 12x8 sliding chicken door, and a 3x5 chicken run.
    My customers have been ordering this design the most due to how it looks more like a house instead of a coop. The roof was the most complex part using 2x4 trusses and 5/8 inch sheathing, but the rest of the framing was not all that hard using 2x2 studs.
    The floor rafters is treated with 2x2's with 5/8inch osb sheathing on top.
    This coop is extremely easy to build on site. I pre build it in my shop and it comes in sections so it is already painted. All what is required s screws to put the whole thing together.

    The finished coop shown in the article looks very nice but it appears these coops are made & sold by an individual. There are no plans, photos or narrative that describe the build.

    I mostly build these for my customers, but my wife tells me that I should make some plans. Give me about a week and I will probably post an announcement or plans for all my coop designs. Thanks for the comment

    Great looking coop. Any idea when the plans will be available to purchase? I am interested in plans for the 6x8 or the 8x8 with the run.
    Thanks
