    Hey BYC fam! Wondering the best way to stretch a coop to fit more chickens? With spring finally looking like it's coming to the midwest, all the peeping at TSC has my willpower threadbare... but my coop is close to at it's limit already! Is there some contraption that will magickally make it bigger (of course for no cost) so I can bring home a box of fluff balls??? :hit

    A picture of your current coop would help.

    You can always bring home some fluff-balls! You will just be faced with the decision to remove some members of your flock before winter sets in and they are cooped up in too small of a space. Or you will spend the next several months planning and building the expansion!

    Good Luck.
