    Does anyone have access to free chicken coop plans? I have been searching and cannot find anything that will work. I am looking for 8 x 8 to house 10 chickens. I started to create my own plans, but it did not turn out well. I have access to lumber, I just need a plan. Please help.

    Depending on your location and number of birds, ChopperLinc just put up a fantastic little all weather coop plan in this section. If you're in a hotter area, you can simply not insulate and not make the removable solid panels, instead just go with hardware cloth. Not saying you have to follow it board for board but it's a wonderful start point and it looks like a easy build.

    You can borrow from the library. I did check out once and there are about 40 plans, which give you more choice to decide.

    Elmo,

    That's a great coop and run. I have a question about the run. Did you put anything in the ground to anchor it or does it just sit on the baseboard frame? I think I can adopt this for my large run plans as well. Thanks for the idea!
