    I am new to the whole chicken coop building process. I have just moved into a new home and have an old wood stacking area that I would like to build this coop. My only problem is that I am not sure what a good setup would be for it. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I have attached pictures of what the area looks like. The dimensions are 2ft X 5ft X 4.5ft

    I can picture this with a double-decker nesting box on each side, with an open space and roost in the middle. Maybe a ladder to reach the top boxes. Put the floor of the coop about 1 1/2 feet up from the ground so you have storage underneath.

    What kind of feeder/waterer are you planning to use? With only 2ft depth, I imagine the standard hanging ones would make a huge mess.

    I have not decided yet as to what feeder/waterer I will use. Do you have any suggestions?
