Ok... time for the silly newbie question of the day! I was thinking (which is admitedly dangerous). If I am only planning on having banties... why does my coop have to be so tall? Yes, I HAVE read that many people recomend being able to stand up in your coop. But... um... I really have no intention of going in it. I will happily clean it out, just as I do my parrots cages (one of which is 3'x4'x5')... but I do not plan to sleep in it or anything. As banties tend to roost a bit lower... does it really need to be taller than 4 foot from floor to ceiling? If not... could it be made from modifying (making cutouts and removing sides and backs etc) kitchen cabinets? This is sorta what I had in mind: This would be the front and left side which is the ne corner front and right side which is sw corner and the back from the se corner The nest boxes are 15.5"x12" cupboards (like you put over ranges or fridges), The main section is sink base cupboards, the next section is made of small cupboards again... the bottom doors can be opened for entryways and the top for ventillation in summer. The last section is base cupboards that the drawers have been left in for storage and the doors could access the food and water section. Am I crazy... or might it work?
