I feel like a broken record, as I have knocked around this topic in other posts, but here I go again. Now that the Buckaroo coop is not going to happen, I need to come up with a solution for the coming winter. Sigh... I have made my way through most of the old posts and bookmarked several cute, yet fairly complex coop designs. Next spring I will likely build something based on those, but for the moment I could use an idea for a temporary structure to get us through the winter. Has anyone bookmarked any posts showing photos of simple coops that would be suitable for 10 birds which I might create as a temporary structure until next year? I really am not eager to do the bale house because it is my sense that a structure large enough to house 10 birds and to get inside and clean the place, collect eggs, etc. would become a lot of bales to stack, awkward to seal with any sort of windows and door, and a mess of junk bales to get rid of next year. I really don't want to go there... I found myself reading this post last night - How flexible is the coop sq. footage per bird? With that in mind, if I provide adequate roosting, is a 4x8 coop going to be a huge mistake? Even though it might turn out to be a longer-term solution than the next 6 months, this coop seems like it could be built in a day or two. They built it at 6x4x6, but I would make it 8' long. Any other ideas for something that would go up quick and easy, as opposed to the lovely sheds and clever solutions that can be done with more time than I feel I have at the moment? Thanks so much. I appreciate everyone's input. (BTW, we do get snow - potentially lots of it - and freezing temps.) Oh, and I have obviously looked at the coops section, and we have a copy of the (reasonably disappointing) 45 chicken coop plans book.
