    I want to make a cattle panel coop, not the hoop coop (I made the hoop coop and felt it didn't cover enough space). I already have the cattle panel and wire that will be repurposed into this project. I want to use three cattle panel, two on the sides and one on top. These three will be secured by six t-post and covered in wire (already have). So, that leaves the ends. I want to put a small enclosure on one end and a door on the other. I haven't seen any coops like this (I probably overlooked them). The size will be 16 ft. L x 50 in. H x 50 in. W. ground space.

    Does anyone have any pictures? Or ideas? TIA [​IMG]

    There's a good example here somewhere, but I'll have to see if I can track it down for you. It caught my attention because I liked the design & the reinforced frame the cattle panels give the coop. It's also looks easy to expand with the addition of more panels as chicken math overtakes my common sense. [​IMG]
