I currently have my girls in a temporary coop that I bought from Theisen's Farm Supply. It isn't holding up at all. Hasn't even been a year and the floor pan is cracked through and the nest box floor is severely rotted. I am currently designing a new more permanent coop and am interested in using cob construction methods. Cost is my biggest factor in this and it looks pretty darn easy, though time consuming. SO I am looking for input from anyone who has experience with this method or suggestions anyone else may have. My town only allows for 4 hens and the footprint of the coop to be no larger than 6'X8". The permit isn't clear on whether or not this includes the run in these dimensions. So I may get creative with that, not sure how much I want to push it though. Thank you!
