    Many pre-built or coop kits are not made to stand up to weather conditions. They look great but are flimsy. Also they over estimate by far , how many birds they can comfortably hold.

    Better to build or have someone build for you. Check out the coop sections for ideas, styles, sizes and reasons why certain things are done.

    This coop is for some bantams which also free range. I realize its small and weak but it'll fit the bill . We will support were needed, seel the roof and add whatever is needed! Thanks for your input though. We are also building another coop and I've asked the questions have in another post in the coop forum.
