    Does anyone have a plan similar to this coop? I'm hoping this isn't too complex.

    Mine is like that. The garden coop. I actually bought the plans from the website and, for me, it was totally worth buying plans. Very helpful! I made a modification or two on the fly including adding a pop out nest box made from an old kitchen cabinet on the end where the window is in your picture. Mostly though, I stuck with the instruction. [​IMG]

    I think that I am going to change out the roof panels for plywood though, since I lost one of the shade trees from my neighbors yard when it fell over in a storm one night recently. I feel like it gets too much morning sun now. (I'm in texas and it gets hot early!)

    Definitely not too complex if you have a few tools. I'm a 50 year old female and I built it completely single handedly. Of course it looks a little different now since I added a large run and put my babies out in it, lol. They are 10 weeks now. Been out there for about 4 weeks full time.

    Those are pretty nice plans...the guy who sells them is pretty good with feedback too, or was.
    Lots of examples on the website.
    I believe the plans are easily enlarged, which is a good idea IMO, because it is rather small.

    Yes! It is kind of small, as I am rapidly finding out, lol. That darn chicken math.
