EDITED 10/13/16 @ 11:30 AM to include new thoughts Due to HOA restrictions, I have to house my chickens in my garage. I don't park my cars in there so that's not an issue, but finding something that works well is. Right now all I have is eggs in the incubator and hope for the future, so planning help is appreciated. I know that this is not ideal, and I wish I had a huge farm to do all this on but I don't. I want to work with what I do have so that I don't cause any issues with our neighbors ect. What I need: Space to house 3 laying hens (the rest of the chickens will be harvested for meat) Movable (just in case) What I have: 2 car garage with concrete floor and two very large windows with lots of natural light (Attached with electricity and a built in work bench approx. 2x8 feet. Has two garage doors, plus a side door with screen door. Here's an idea (I'll post dimensions later): What would be a bonus: Space to sprout fodder (although I do have a small tent style greenhouse that could work for this purpose) Stackable cages for future expansion? (I'm interested in having quail soon, and off into the future potentially rabbits) Here's a design I was playing with from some cages I found online and in my local feed store. I didn't have space to draw out the area underneath, but it is about twice the size and would look similar to the photo at the lower left corner. This would give roughly 12 square feet for the chicken coop, and a little larger than a 2x3 foot upper cage for quail. I could do hinged doors on the run area that sits beneath the coop, this would give me better access to clean. I'm also thinking of constructing a sand box underneath and using that for the run bedding with traditional bedding in the actual coop area. I'm thinking that this will also help with keeping things clean. Toying with the plexiglass idea, would it be better to do a box type enclosure that includes the window with an access door for me, and house the coop and cages inside of that? If so I could run the cages along the wall the garage door is on at the lower left side and have a plexiglass divider. I could sit them along a wall since I wasn't planning on accessing them from the back anyway.
