Hi there- my family has just gotten our first ever chicks. We currently have them in an extra large dog crate-turned brooder in our basement and are thinking about what type of coop to build. We have 10 chicks and would like to keep about 10 hens (I know some of ours will be Roos so I will have to get more when the time comes). My 1st question is- I've seen hoop style coops that I like, and our southern family members turned their greenhouse into a coop. Does anyone have experience with that style in an area with hard winters? We live in western ny and get a lot of snow and cold from the Great Lakes. If that style doesn't work, does anyone have any awesome plans? I've generally had trouble finding coop plans to fit our need. Everything is either 2-6 chickens or 30, I am struggling to find plans for 10-15 hens that we can insulate for winter. Any ideas are welcome! My husband is handy and will just make his own plans if need be, but Im sure someone has something they can share!
