    I am going to build a new coop for my girls since I have gotten so addicted to chickens that I now have to many for my current coop. I would like to find some neat plans online to download for free. Does anyone have any ideas? The coop needs to be nice looking but cheap since I live in a suburban area and don't want to make the neighbors mad with an ugly coop.

    thanks.

    Well I could plug my own coop. It is an 8 by 8, and sits in our front yard, so it can't be too ugly. If you click on my BYC pages, on the second page I have scale drawings of how it is constructed. In the next day or so, I will have them formatted so that they print out to scale, but at least the measurements are there.

    Thanks, "R", I have six chickens. It could hold more, and I may add a couple more this spring. But I like having lots of room in there for them, and for me.
