    My coop lit on fire on friday. It was really hard, only me and my mom were there. It started with the heat lamp, when the nighbor called it was too late. I lost all of my five chickens. Now that the coop was destroyed I am researching and trying to find one that would be good for 12 hens. I would just like the plans. or some good sites. I would love some helpful ideas. I just want to look on the bright side of the matter, it was just so hard to loose all of my hens. It was also soooooooo stupid to put a heat lamp in. This year we are building a barn so the chickens will be there along with two rabbits, I just want a super warm coop so that I wont need a lamp. I just feel so stupid.

    I've never used plans to build a coop. But I will say that chickens do better in cold weather than hot. They got those feathers for a reason.
