Hi guys I just posted entitled "Chicken Coops". Basically I'm a newbie and some members have been great helping me with size ideas (just had to confirm with the pros that my coop was big enough!) Turns out the guide I bought online was great as the size of coop they suggested I build is what some of the members said it should be. For anyone who wants to build a coop, I suggest you buy this fantastic guide. I bought this myself and it has a multitude of designs and ideas and step by step instructions to build your coop. I'm sure you'll find it useful! http://tinyurl.com/1chickencoop I'm sure it'll save you lots of money as well as give you great design ideas - only cost my $29.95 which was great considering I was abou to spend $375 on a new coop!
