    i am building a chicken coop in February for the chickens i am getting in march. I am wondering if you could build a 2 story chicken coop. the first story for the nest and roosts and the top story for feed and other stuff. There wi;ll also be a run but how and could you build one.

    What size feed are you going to be storing up there, if you get the 50 pound bags..make sure you have support beams to hold all the weight on the second story. It should be easy enough, just find the type of coop you want,then put your own 'addition' on it and make it x amount taller for storage.

    Another idea is making a box on the side of your coop for storage, with a lid that lifts up.
