    What type of coop and run would be best when living in the city? I would like to keep the footprint small but at the same time maintain the integrity of the poultry housing. Any suggestions?[​IMG]

    I cant help you much with your question. But if you will post it in the Coop & Run Design and Construction section, Im sure you will get lots of help and ideas.

    You could try making a 2 story chicken coop, this would minimize the footprint and allow you to have space for your hens.

    Hi marciab!!! I like redoak's idea - a 2-story! You might want to scan the coop design section at BYC - lots of great examples of coops of different sizes!!! [​IMG]
