    We're thinking about building a 4-x 8 coop. What do we need to think about as far as the floor plan inside? Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    Certainly you'll need an area for nestboxes, a place for roosts, and a place for food and water (if you plan on feeding them inside the coop).

    Did you want to section the coop off into a storage place for humans only?

    I'd suggest looking at the BYC Coop Design Pages to get some ideas for what you might like to include in your coop.
