hi I'm Mary I am doing research on building a coop using reclaimed materials. I would like a medium coop for 6 to 7 hens. Can anyone help? Thanks and I love this site!!! Mary
Hello and welcome to BYC, glad you could join us!
1.Well I think you should have the coop on stilts for one thing so that its harder for mud to splash all over (then it rots quicker) the coop plus it will only be a small coop so it will be less money cause treated wood is expensive!
2. You will probably only need a 4ft by 5ft coop because you won't have many chickens right!?

Sorry that is all the advice I have!
Greetings from Kansas, Mary, and
