    Anyone know where I can get plans for the coop we saw on an episode of Kate Plus 8? Thanks

    Thanks mons02035, I had found that info but I cant afford the price they want for the coop. I want to build it myself but I dont want to attempt it without plans. Thanks again though!

    DH and I looked at many coop sites and liked this one below. We didn't have plans. Just decided how big we wanted and drew out our own plans. The only thing I would have done differently would have been be to put the "human" door on the other side with a step and keep pop where it is.

    But now we are building a bigger coop ( live and learn) for the 8 girls and DH took down the block wall and extended the run. We now have more run space and eventually more coop space (when new coop is done) that DH said I can get 2 more chicks. [​IMG]

    Check your local feed stores if they sell any coops. I get my feedings from agway and they have quaker style coops for a lot less $. They had 4x6 or was it 4x8 but it was for $800.00.
    Good luck and I hope you'll find what you're looking for.
