    I am looking for some blue prints or plans for various types of chicken housing so I can decide what suits my needs and hopefully build it. Does anyone have any they can share! I will need something that suits a large flock and something medium or small to use for breeding and to set my mother up with some laying hens at her place she only wants a few chickens to keep it affordable.

    Have you checked ebay? I bought several plans from there. I also got the black and decker book about contemporary sheds. A few of them would make fabulous coops with minor adjustments.

    google 'poultry house plans' and you should turn up dozens of plans from the USDA for everything from a backyard flock to several hundred bird commercial facility
