    I will second the idea of a Lean 2 off of the existing coop. This is what we do for coop expansion for new birds to the flock. Areas are wide open to the run in the warm months and then closed off (with ventilation of course) during the Winter months.

    A ceiling height over 6' is best so that you don't get those frequent head "dings" or hunker in the coop. :)
