. . . i wish i would have made just one big coop and a very large pen. Instead, i kept adding on more smaller coops and pens, as i got more and more chickens, to where now i have 8 separate chicken pens with their own little coop. Some are very hard to get into and out of - like my bright idea of buying a 4' tall pen thinking "Hey, the chickens are short. They don't need a 6' tall pen". So now i have multiple waterers and feeders to tend to, 8 pens to clean (not counting the duck, geese, and goat pens). i was just outside looking and thinking if it's even feasible to redo things at this point. Anyhow, the morale of my sad story is - Always Plan for More Chickens!
