    Does anyone know any good resources/books that teach you how to build a medium sized coop (for 6-8 chickens) for novices? I do not have any experience or knowledge in construction (but I'm sure I can wield a hammer if needed) so I am looking for a design plan or how-to guide that gives a comprehensive list of materials and preferably step-by-step pictures of how to construct it. I've seen a couple books on building coops out there but haven't had a chance to actually flip through. For those of you who used design plans for your coops, where did you get them and how "user/beginner-friendly" were they?
