got 6 silkie chicks 3 weeks ago. My husband wanted to build them something of thier own. I found a photo online of a coop style that i like. we aren't using plans so we are just trying to put it together so that is looks similar. The dimensions of the whole structure is 5'by 9'by 5'high, the coop is 5' by 3' by 3' high. I hope its big enough! It took us 3 hours to figure out how to put the frame together lol! I decided to go with cherry stain...not sure if I love it yet though. We might change this side and add a cute little window! We still need to add the doors, wire, and roof we will be working on it tonight, so I will post more pics of our progress! I hope my silkies will use a ramp lol, we have been reading that most silkies wont use ramps , I guess if they don't we will have to put them in the old coop and give this one to my other 3 chickens!
