    I am new to chickens in the processing of purchasing my first house and want to build a chicken coop and run. I would like to have 8-10 chickens. I don't want to pay $2k for a built one so I am looking to build one. I do not need anything fancy but would like it to be aesthetically pleasing as it will be seen. What size is needed for this?

    Does any one have a detailed build that includes required materials as well as pictures. If you have steps on it that would be awesome. All I have been able to find is just pictures at different stages during someone's build process.

    Thanks,
    Devin
