Daughter bought a tiny coop - was told it would hold from three to four chickens. They must have meant Chicks!! Only three grown chickens could fit on roost, the fourth laid in the poop!! We incorporated the small coop into a larger A-frame chicken run, with fantastic results! The hens still have a safe place to run and hide if they feel the need, but are usually outside most of the day and night on the roosts in the larger coop. It was easy to make, started with the A-frame of a swing set. (found it rotten, so began again from scratch) Now if we wish to add a few more chicks at any time, we can just close the small coop off from the larger one, add a couple of laying boxes and they are separated from the hens!!
