    ok lol I think that worked
    well today i've been sketching up the plans for the new coop and this is what i've came up with. btw yes that is a quick ms paint translation of whats on paper. I'm thinking of just going right off the end of the house with it. that trapezoid is a bay window off one of the bedrooms. The area before the little boxes is a covered barn like addition for work space, hatchery, and storage. The smaller boxes are the coops themselves with the lager boxes being runs also covered. The diagonal lines are human size doors.


    OK now for some explaining of what I'm looking for, first off the coops as well as the runs them selves have to be large enough for large birds no just chickens. One of those sections are for a flock that I intend to keep year round how ever the others are merely fancy holding pins, unless the flock gets too big for one.

    well I think that covers everything I can think of but I might just be a bit distracted atm. all questions and suggestions are welcome

    I didn't draw in little things like windows are anything yet or go out and get measurements due to rain. Also I was thinking to have bird size doors connecting the coops and runs so they could be shut off or opened up if need be.

    well i have lots of ideas and some sketches, waiting for weather to warm up and to be free when it is warm. Need to ad measurements to these sketches and see how much material I have and such. need to see how many birds were planing on running too this year another thing too is i'll only really have to do one or two of the runs now I can always do the others later
