    Okay, I'm starting all over with my coop plans. [​IMG] What are some sites that give blueprints for chicken coops? Im not sure what I want so maybe if I look at different plans I can come up with something I will LOVE! I dont really care about the outside so much, its more of where to place what and have easy access to everything.

    Quote:I have, but for the most part all the photos are from the outside view. With only a few of the layout of the inside. I need something that will be able to have two doors, one to the coop and then one to the run. Plus have nest, roost and whatever else needs to have. I will have 6 large hens.

    When we wanted to build, it was really hard to find coop plans. There is just too many possiblilities. We finally settled on a shed and altered it to fit our needs. Have double door in, pop door to run and a door in the run. Once you build what size you need, then just sit down and figure out where things will fit. With just 6 hens, you don't need it too big, but then again, plan for the future and make it bigger, cuz if you are any thing like the rest of us, you'll get more chickens and need a bigger coop [​IMG]
