My husband and I finally decided we are going to get chickens so we are now in the phase of designing our own coop. Any suggestions would be great!

Welcome!!!!!!! I live in CO also! Make sure the coop is bigger than you are planning on as chicken keeping is addictive! Provide one nest for every two hens you keep. Below are attachments that may help. Enjoy this website and we are here to help
