    Chickens, bees, goats, rabbits - sounds good to me. Welcome to BYC. A forum search or a visit to the "Raising backyard chickens" forum "Coop and run design' section should provide some ideas.

    Welcome to BYC! I built an external next box and modeled the interior with guidance from this thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/287684/new-rollout-nest-design-picture-heavy-edited-1-21

    It opens from the back for egg collecting and the top is removable. Sorry, no blueprints. I think I sketched it on a paper plate. The good news is that there are volumes written on the topic on BYC. Finding time to pick through the info. is the tough part.

    Hey guys. You make me feel welcome here. Thank you. My uncle used cinders from our grill for chickens to dust in. He said It really helps them. Have any of you tried that?
