    I'm wanting to get into chickens. I don't have a clue about anything that has to do with raising chickens. Im planning on trying to build a coop this weekend. Any advice or pictures of a coop would be awesome.

    Check out the BYC learning center for tons of coop plans and pics.
    A good breed for beginners is the Buff Orpingtons.

    This link will take you to the coop section here on BYC, you should be able to get lots of ideas there. https://www.backyardchickens.com/coopdesigns.html
    Also
    look at peoples "My Page" links under their names and in the sig line at the bottom of their posts, I've gotten lots of ideas there also.

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] You've come to the right place. There is a ton of information on coops here. I recommend doing a fair bit of research before you build. You can do a search for coop construction or check out the learning center on the BYC main page. That is where I got a lot of my ideas.
