That looks a lot like mine. I don’t have a plan for it though. I’d be happy to get the measurements and such. I built it on a budget, used a lot of odds and ends, other than the pieces of siding. I took the time to make rollaway nest boxes and it was definitely worth it! If your considering that at all.

What is a rollaway nest box and why was it worth it to have that? Ive not heard of those before. But I did find the plans I was looking for, thank you

Here are my nesting boxes, the floor is set on an angle (14 degrees) so the eggs roll into a separate area for easy collection. Maybe you’ve had a different experience, but I had problems with hens pooping on the eggs. The new boxes have stopped that completely. Also keeps eggs away from hens so they don’t eat them, if that’s an issue. Good luck with your project!

One last thing, I see some variation in the doors for your coop design. If I were building , I would opt for a larger door. Almost the entire front of my coop opens, and it has been really handy for cleaning and other tasks.
