    We see lots of pictures of lovely coops and runs but I would love to see the inside of people's coops to see how they've laid things out. I know in my first coop we made some design oops that we won't make again, but I'd like to see other people's floor plan. Thanks

    I'd like to see that too. We're converting our corncrib. Long and narrow. East and south facing. Where should we place the perches and nesting boxes? Should they be mobile to change with the seasons?

    This is my first coop, so I am no expert. However, you can see how I set up the inside.

    Edited because I forgot to mention, it is on my BYC page if you want to see more pics.

    I had a few things I wish I'd done differently but they seem happy in it so far.
    I think I'm going to add a leaning ladder roost at the end opposite the nest boxes and I still need to cut a chicken sized door in.
