New guy here from socal. I still dont have any chickens but i have a few friends who do and they kinda got me into them. They might actually be in this forum. I pretty much just want chickens for the fresh eggs and they dont seem complicated to care for. Im a bit limited in backyard room, so im only planning to keep 5 maybe 6 chickens. Plus I have a not-so-friendly german shepherd, and a typical 9 to 5, and I might start school soon again, so Im planning on keeping the chickens confined so I dont have to worry about them on the busy days. So anyways, im building a 4'x6' coop attached to a 12'x'6' run. Apparently that should give me enough room for 6 chickens. Heres a rough preview of what I want to build... The tall side of the coop against the block wall will be 6' high, and the sloped side where the door is will be 5' tall. Theres going to be a 3' wide entrance to the run for cleaning and what not, and the coop will have a large door on the front side for easier cleaning. Im planning on putting removable nesting boxes on the inside of the coop, with an opening to get access to the eggs. On the other side of the run, im leaving room to build rabbit cages too, but thats another story lol. I live in a very very hot place, so im going to add some holes at the sides of the coop for ventilation too. I pretty much designed this using different ideas from different coops ive seen online, so feel free to tell me if theres anything wrong or any other suggestions.
