    Anyone have any plans (the simpler the better) for building a coop for our girls.
    We are newbies and need something real soon!

    That is a tough question without some facts: how many chickens are you talking about, where do you live (warm climate?), are you in the city or country (what kind of animals are you going to be fighting against).
    Answering these questions may get better answers.
    I know Craigslist always has a used dog house for sale, but they are only good for housing a couple of chickens. We call our coop the Tash Mahal because it cost so much to build, but it is a shed on cement footings with a completely fenced in yard that is buried two feet in the ground.
