    I currently have two very large coops on my property. One is for my layers and the other is my "man pad" that houses all of the roos that will eventually be sold or dinner. I am wanting to construct something like a breeding coop and run adjoining my laying coop for birds. I want to eventually sell eggs and would love a little place to be able to put 5-6 in at a time for a couple of weeks so i know that their eggs will be pure. Does anyone else have these? If so, post pictures? I am wanting to start this project next weekend so it will be done by june. (I am very slow at these things) Thanks a bunch!

    I use a small coop that will hold 3 or 4 birds. It's built like a large doghouse, about 5 feet tall.

    My breeding pens ar 6wx 8d x6h. You probably don't need that much room but it has worked well for me. I have seven breeding pens I use to keep my different breeds pure.
