    I have decided that I need a new coop, my other one is worn down and a bit raggedy. So my new coop that I need a design for would need to accomodate 7 chickens. If there's a link you have with a materials list and a design that would be very helpful.


    Thank You

    Hi chickenboy, welcome to the BYC forum!

    First, I suggest you look at the coops here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/coopdesigns.html

    Plans
    are scarce as most people seem to build coops out of whatever materials / scraps they have on hand. If you end up building a coop, take lots of pics along the way and we'll add yours to the site linked to above. (BTW, if anyone else wants to add their coop to the site shoot me a note: [email protected] backyardchickens.com)

    BTW, I moved this thread to the coop section: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewforum.php?id=9

    Lots
    of good info in this section on coops.
