    I am trying to plan for a possible builder coop in the late Summer. I know that the way I se up, there is a lot of wasted space, but that is okay. If I change from breeder pens later on, I can remove the pens and have a large coop for anything. This is a big part of the plan. Each design has space for a brooder, at least 2 pens, a run, and look okay. The first one is like Buster's coop under construction. The second is exterior like the layer lodge, minus one "wing" if that makes sense.

    Looks like a great start Imago! [​IMG] Have you thought about having the storage area along the front, then put the bantams where the storage was and still have it a 5x4 pen? That way you could have a run on both sides and won't risk having any "accidents" with chickens escaping into the wrong pen? Just something I thought of. You don't have to do it, your plans look great already! If only I had the room to build something that big. [​IMG]

    That's a great idea. Or I could even move the door to the middle and have runs on both sides. I am unsure though. I don't really have the room for it [​IMG] we are kind of stealing half of the chainlink kennels for the big dogs. There will only be a big German Shepherd ??? mix that is 17. He has grown with chickens and there is a gate and fence seperating the run the chicks would be in and him. My brother is moving out so his dogs will not be out there. It's just a lot of cleaning [​IMG]
