My 1st coop ended as a cool garden shed, but now I'm seriously hoping to make my new project into a coop so I can get a few chickens. I got a 5 sided gazebo-esk like cage that is approx 58" wide and 67" tall without the shingled roof. It has a branch perch across the whole width and a couple of shelf perches (not committed to these). I would like to put in 2 nest boxes and would like to attach a run, (room is no problem). I live in Western Washington State so our winters are usually not too harsh, just wet. I don't have trees near the location I want to put the coop (is that a problem?), so I know I will need to cover some sides. I have been reading alot and have some ideas what I'd like to do, but I am open to any suggestions. After spending the day reading alot of the forums I know this is the best place to get it.I uploaded a couple of pictures but a message keeps coming up that tells me there's a problem with spam and I have to reduce the number of URLs or images to 0. So once I get that figured out I will post them so it's alittle easier to see what I am trying to do. Any help greatly appreciated!
