    I have looked at all of the coops here on BYC, but I need help picking out a plan. I would like to have a coop with a run attached to it and for it to be big enough for a person to fit in/walk around in.Maybe like a walk way with the cages on the sides? It would house about 20 chickens. I would like to be able to put a brooder inside the coop. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Bigger,the better. If you go too small, you'll be sorry later.

    I built mine from scratch. It is only large enough for about 8, but it is large enough for me to stand straight up in it. I kept it small to keep cost under control, but that didn't work. If I was to do it again I think I'd buy a used minibarn, maybe from Craig's List, about 12 x 12. Then I'd convert it into a coop.
