    I am wanting to expand my coop to hold about 20 hens, any ideas on a coop that will protect them from predators?

    I built this one with leftovers from the old chicken house I tore down and a bit of new lumber

    Wow that is amazing! We built a very sturdy, fancy house for my hens and attached a fence to it and it can only hold about 12 hens. A friend of mine bought an old storage trailer thing and cut a door for the hens and put in roosts and laying boxes ad since it has wheels, he can move it whenever they run out of grass and under the trailer try have lots of shade! I would love to do something like that if I could just find something! Bit your hen house is beautiful!
