    This is the beginning of my custom a frame chicken coop! So excited, the back ( where the 2x4s are only feet apart) will be the actual coop from ground to peak and the front 8 feet will be the run. So excited, possibly thinking of doing two floors in the coop, and maybe the run also but just having roosts up high in the run

    Looks like a great start. Isn't it wonderful that no matter how small our property is, we can enjoy the fun of chikenry. I never want to be without them.

    Looks great, I love this shape! We just got a tractor coop that's a bit similar in size, but your construction is much better!
