    I want to see everyone big walk in coops. It don't have to be big, I just want to see some good walk in coops, with outside and inside pictures. I need to build a new one, haha! Thanks for posting!

    I'm so excited to see everyone's posts! [​IMG]

    guess what Ive had my eye on for a walk in coop? Those small shooting houses they have for sale this time of year. I see them for sale all over town right now. They even have them at academy sports. With a few modifications, they are almost ready to go. Have no idea how much they cost but if I get another one, its going to have to be ready made..hubby went on strike as far as coops are concerned [​IMG]

    Get the Building Chicken Coops for Dummies book here in the Store at BYC. It has detailed plans of a few coops, one of them a walk in coop. One of the BYC members - dsgard - has built one, and posted info on it, if you wanna do a search for it.

    Mine is 8x8 and is big enough for me to have a chair in it to sit with the chickens. Then they started laying in my chair:lol:

    No pics yet, but I have written about a number of foolish mistakes I made. Pro Tip: build it with screws so you can easily rearrange it later.

    Here's mine. I love it! I enjoy being able to hang out with my chickens and the ease of clean up.

    Here's the coop during construction. The outside footprint is 10 x 14, inside it's 9 x 9 with a 4 x 9 service area.
    Has a run off the other side now.
