    Hi, I am wondering if anyone has built their chicken coop inside the barn. I would have their run outside. I have the room in the barn so figured it would be a good place for one..we will make sure to make it predator proof.

    My coop is a converted stall in my barn. Makes a nice spacious coop. Definitely the way to go.

  4. I have coops built into the side of my barn. These are separate structures than horse stalls. I think horse stalls would be great for chickens. I'm using what i have though.

    Not a barn, but I built my coop inside part of a large shed.
