    So with all the babies i am keeping this year I need to build a new coop for the cochins. The ducks have been needing one for a long time now too so it'll probably get done all at the same time. I would LOVE to see the coops/runs you guys have for your Bantam Cochins. Maybe it'll help me get this all figured out before hand!

    Thanks everyone [​IMG]

    Hi There,
    If you click on my page I have several different pages and one of them is a coop my DH and I just built last week. I have this coop for silkies, young ones, and my two young cochins. Keep in mind that everything should be at a low level and make it so the ramp is not too long. All birds use the ramp except one silkie hen I had. B/c she would not use the ramp I sold her this weekend due to having to go search the bushes everynight to fish her out and put her in the coop.
    Good Luck,
    Beth

    So far all of mine are using a long & tall ramp to get into a small, elevated coop so the ramp thing shouldnt be a problem. They have been using a ramp since they were in the brooder so i think that helped them not be wary of it, even with their "big heads". [​IMG]
