Hello- I have not introduced myself... yet, but I will I am in need of figuring out how to build my chicken coop and need a lot of help. I have been rasised on a farm, but I just moved out of my parents house (they moved out of state and I stayed) so we are living with my fiance and his parents. We are building a house a few hundred feet from his parents and we are all into being self sufficient. I currently have 7 hens and 2 roosters and want to get many more.... along with some dairy goats, etc...... BUT I have been waiting for my fiance and his father to build my chicken coop for 6 months and they have started building a small coop and still haven't finished. The future mother inlaw and I are sick of it and want to build the coop ourselves, but I have no experience or understanding when it comes to building.. If someone could give me some sort of plan on materials, a layout, etc... I could go buy the stuff and start building. I need a coop that will fit around 20 chickens, because that is what I am hoping to get up to. Something sturdy as we have a lot of wild animals and are house is in the middle of nowhere with coyotes that come out everynight. I want something that will be enclosed (a good sized area for 20 chickens to get into through the winter) and then a fenced in outside area.. Thanks for any and alll help!!!!!
