    [​IMG] When you are looking at the coops, remember chicken math... Most of us end up with more chickens than we originally planned for. You may want to allow for a little room for expansion.

    Here is mine. Its a 8x4 and atm there are 9 chickens in it. I have a small coop next to it which i will soon be adding another big coop since chicken math problems. [​IMG]

    The small coop you see there was just extended cause i got 2 silkies. LOL. It was made for only 8 chickens then would be used for a brooding box. Plans changed.

    However many chickens you plan on having, DOUBLE that number, then consider what size coop you will need. Trust me on this [​IMG]
