    Been researching chicken coops for awhile and decided to become a member. Atemping to build a chicken coop but want to know all my measurements before I start. The last time we had chickens we had a shed in the backyard that worked great. We have moved since then and there is a great run already in the backyard but no coop. There is a shed but it is about 10 or 15 feet from the run. It has crossed our mind to make a connection to the two but the coops that have been posted are so neat and I would like to make a nice little home for our 10 chicks. Right now they are staying in a dog house that was already there inside the run. I am thinking I need to make the coop 4'x8' or 4'x10'. Well, I could go on and on.
    Thanks for all the information this site has to offer.
