    Hello there, I'm new.....Don't know anything about chickens yet cept they are cute & lay eggs. Has anyone made a coop out of a mini barn?? Silly as it may sound I want to be able to get into the coop with them, maybe have a small excape from the rest of the world. I don't have my chicks yet and want to get everything ready before I buy them. Also...Is there a certain kind of chicken that enjoys handling as I have grandkids who will be active in this adventure?? Thanks for any suggestions or advice.

    Welcome to the chicken addiction.

    BYC has a huge coop section here:

    Lots of people convert mini barns or shed to coops. And lots are big enough for people too.

    Have fun building your coop.
