    I am interested in raising chickens for eggs (4to6 for a start) and I would appreciate some help with types of coop designs (stationary) and also with breed types (I live on the East Coast). any type of help would be great.

    Do you want to raise your chickens for eggs? meat? show? or exoticness (is that a word?) ?

    Welcome! If you click on "learning center" at the top of the page, then click on "coop designs" you will find many excellent photos. Also take a look through the category of this form (go to "index" and then "ccop design & construction").
