My DH agreed back in December that he would build me a quarentine/brooder coop for newbies, sickies and broody hens (obviously not at the same time - and would be cleaned thoroughly after each squatter did it's time ). I have been pleading with him to hurry it up, and now time has run out. I have an event coming up this Saturday that I had intended on attending so I can add to my current flock of 5. Can anyone show me a link to something that can easily be built in a half day's time (or quicker)? My original idea was something similar (but probably not as fancy) as this design: https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=10091-The_Corrolla I prefer to keep the coop off the ground... large enough to hold 3 standards temporarily... and have the small run/outside area for some stretching room under the coop itself. I know, beggars can't be too choosey. And thank you to all for your quick thinking!
