    Do a google search for Purina chicken coop plans. They have a nice 5-6 bird coop plan you can print and build by.

    Go to your library and get a book on building a shed (like, a backyard storage shed type thing). There are a lot of real good ones with complete plans and materials lists and step-by-step photos and excellent DIY directions. Add more ventilation, a roost and a popdoor, and there ya go.

    And it will be better than most "chicken coops" whose plans are sold as such.

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat

    Thank you [​IMG] I really like the Purina plan. Going to show it to my husband when he gets home.

    Quote:That's the same one I built. Took me the better part of a day to get it put together, but so far it works like a charm and looks good too.
