    Are there any 15 x 20 plans on here? My chicken coop will be inside this run that I need to build. Thanks!

    A coop of those dimensions is going to require more engineering and more expensive lumber than if you cut it down to 10 or 12 feet wide. I would probably build it 10x20 with a 5 foot overhang. You could enclose that as a sun room for a place for them to hang outside in bad weather.
