    Has anyone used this plan for their coop?

    http://www.buildeazy.com/plans/chicken_pre.html


    I'm thinking of buying these plans. Its only $5, and its basically what I'm looking for. With looks, size and all...



    Do you think it will be big enough for 6 chickens? I have 2 RIR, 2 BO, and 2 EE.

    I haven't used it but I've seen the pages. I think the PDF is literally, what you see on the free version, on one page, minus ad's... not really worth 5 bucks in my opinion.

    Thanks guys. I am trying to use the free verison and build from that. I have never built anything before, expect for a small tool box in shop class years ago..lol. My chicks are about 3 weeks old and I need to move them to the 'not yet built coop' in a couple of weeks.


    What I'm stuck on is..what is lineal ft?

    Cause its saying I need 150 lineal ft of 2x4's. How do I figure that out? Please help! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think it just means that you need a total of 150 ft of 2x4's. Which, if you got 8 footers, you would need @ 19 of them. [​IMG]
