    I am looking for plans for a medium to large coop with or without running area.
    Anyone know of a good source? Free or $$$$ plans, don't matter... I prefer paying for the plans as you usually get better ones.
    Thanks a lot.

    I'm about to build this coop. Very simple but good. You could make it bigger if you want.

    http://www.sunnysideupcoops.com/DIY-CHICKEN-Info.html Here are a few books that have some great chicken coop plans. We used the DIY Chicken coop plan book to get started. It was easy and although we have made a few modifications it is a good place to start.
    Best of luck with your chickens. [​IMG] you're going to love them!

    Personally, I prefer the "What do I have available, let's make it out of that!" theory of planning. It's amazing what you can do with some scrap lumber and a few pallets. [​IMG]
