    Hi!
    I am looking to build or buy a good-sized chicken coop / chicken tractor for my Silkies.
    I have 4, but would like to get around 10.....For breeding purposes.
    My dad likes to build all of our own things, but I ask him and he says he'll do it later, but It doesn't happen.
    Soooo, I am looking to get some good ideas for a medium sized coop that I can snug up to my old coop.
    He doesn't want a tractor b/c he doesn't like poop and feathers everyone. Lol.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks a bunch!

    If your coop is the one pictured on your member page and your dad built that one, you better lay back and wait until he has time to build the addition. That's a beautiful coop and you don't want to add on to it without his help.
