    Hi there I am new to this and my chicks are about ready to be outside. My husband still hasn't got me a coop:( so my question is can you all help me out by suggesting some building plans for 6-10 chickens. I think I'd like a walk in coop. All suggestions are welcome though. Thanks in advance:)

    Do you want the run (outdoor pen area) to be big enough to walk in or do you want the coop portion that houses them to be big enough to walk in?

    You may just want to check out small sheds. With a few easy modifications they can make great walk in chicken coops. It sounds like you'll be needing a coop pretty quick and a ready to assemble shed, shed kit, or second hand shed might be the easier way to go.
