How expensive was your coop? What size is it. Hubby wants one big enough to house 25 standard chickens. We have a dog kennel area that is 6 ft fencing and its about 25' by 25'. We thought we could use that for a run. What would I need to do to that to make it chicken/predator proof? It does not have a cover on top. For the coop I was thinking something 8 by 10 or 8 by 8. I want to be able to store some feed and things somewhere in there without chickens getting into it. We dont have a garage to store things. I was wondering how much everyone else spent and what size your coop is. Also what would you have done differently in you coop?
