    I want to build a coop in side an existing 100+ year old barn. I want to build it lengthwise along one side so that my husband can continue to park farm equipment in the center. Anyone have any ideas or pictures of that type of coop they would like to share?

    I would just advise that you enclose the coop within the barn entirely. We put our chickens in a stall in the barn, but they are very dusty and have caused a thick layer of dust on everything else in the barn. I just wrote a post on my blog about how we were getting a separate coop because having them in the barn caused too much dust for us. [​IMG]
