    I have 8 chickens. 3 red sex links, 1 black sex link, 2 speckled sussex, 1 australorp mix (i think!) and a huge fat chicken (meat chicken)that cant get up on roosts. we are going to build a coop but im not sure what kind! here in kansaas, it gets HOT in the summer and COLD in the winter! I kneed a coop that could keep them warm or cool. it needs to have a place to lay eggs, too. I need some help on what kind of coop to build! could someone please help?!?
