I know that this subject has probably been beaten to death but being a total newbie to chickens I hope that you can help me out! I'm also severely challenged by building projects so I will have to go pre-fab or have someone build something for me... I found this coop with tractor on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wood-Chicke...654?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item56476554de I will need housing for 6-8 Silkies - they will spend nights in a velocoraptor proofed run (with the main coop in it?) and days free ranging with supervision and in a tractor. After viewing all the beautiful coops on here I am already prepared to make some changes like a linoleum floor in the main house and shingles/metal roof. What do y'all think?
