    New kid on the block here I haven't even got my babies yet but am trying to prepare for their arrival in June I'm looking for some great reading and lessons on building a coop big enough to hold about 10 girls made the dumb mistake of paying 300. + for a coop said to be suitable for at least 8 after building it, it is adorable but might be able to contain 2 bantams "live and learn" I'm thinking maybe 2 rabbits will go well in that one. I don't want to purchase another one on line so being somewhat handy decided to look for good ideas on building my own.
