I have no skills and just kept looking at pics of coops I liked. Built this coop last fall and the run in the last two days. It is 3x3 and 4x8 respectfully. Right now it houses 6 silkie babies who are 8 weeks old. 3 will be moving out as they are boys. I still have all my fingers and toes! The coop is dry and plenty ventilated and insulated. Not bad for an "old" woman who did it all by herself!
