Ideas on new coop??

Discussion in 'Coop & Run - Design, Construction, & Maintenance' started by babychickfarmer, Jun 3, 2008.

  1. We are planning on building a coop in the far right corner of the covered run area.


    We are doing this to intergrade the chicks with the hens and then when they get a long, the coop we are going to be working on is going to be the main coop and the old one will be storage.

    We want to use as much recycled materials as possible...and it is going to need to house 24 chickens so it will need to be 72 sq ft..

    Any ideas or plans I can get from anyone to build this thing...I've come up with some ideas but I am struggling.

    Please Help

    my moms husband used those wooden pallets to build a shed for the garden tractor etc. He got them for free and the shed is nice. We were too lazy to try doing it ourselves. Plus my husband isnt that handy:p

    I love your run.
