    Long story short, I made a coop bigger than I expected to need thanks to the BYC warnings about addiction (8x10). I had 5 hens, 3 pullets, and sent dh to get 10 St run chicks (should put me about 13 girls). He got 14 pullets!!! Now, yes I am happy to have a husband that tries so hard, but it threw off the coop big time. I just finished the inside! Can I make some two level areas, or do I need to sell a few? We have long winters and want happy hens.

    Could you add a little "Loft" type second floor to the coop?

    That could add lots of space!
