Thank you, some great information! They look great I will definitely invest in an auto door. Handy tip- I'll definitely do that@hensforhan
I bought a small prefab too 8-9 years ago. Made a lot of alterations. But it still works with new roofing. It gives shelter at night to 3 bantams (naine de Tournaisis 700 grams bantams) . An extension gives room for another 4 Dutch at the moment. A few window/glass panels holds back the rain and cold wind from the small/safe and roofed run and automatic pop-door makes it possible to go to the larger run after sunrise.

the old coop with a new roof and the extension in front.
Edit/p.s. I bought this small chicken coop for 2 rabbits. After they died I wanted chickens but I realised they had to be very small to fit in. The coop was big enough for 3 Dutch ladies. But the tail of the rooster didn’t fit in wel. Size including the small attached run:
ca. 1,98 m x 0,75 m x 1,03 m (B x D x H) . The extension is about 1 x 0,90 m.
Tip: attach a single strip of EPDM on the flap at the hinges to prevent leaking / rain damage.
