    Hello all

    Have been living here for a year now, have a decent backyard suitable for some chooks!

    I want to build a small chook coop for up to say, six chooks.

    I a looking for ideas, designs and plans!

    Thank you

    Ted

    Hi Ted, and welcome to BYC. The Coops section will keep you busy for days, and I'm sure that you will come up with a design that works well for you. Don't hesitate to share any plans that you develop on the "Coop and Run" forum, if you need a little reassurance.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=learning+centre and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your country thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/598568/australia-six-states-and-that-funny-little-island

    All the best
