    i used to put my chickens in a dog cage until i realized i have to create a coop for them. not only for my convenience but also for my chickens to have wider space.

    The idea is to create a coop which can be expanded so they can dust bathe, run, flap their wings and sun bathe too. my backyard get a little sunlight in the afternoon due to the high wall.

    i have a space just below my stairs. It used look like this:

    So we put doors on it

    Here's the best part. If you open the door:

    You can just put the front gate

    And the cover

    at night, i just remove the gate and the cover.

    Easy to setup and the birds are happier!

    That is a unique solution to your problem of space. Your dad is a smart man.
