    Here is our first coop. I started building it a couple weeks ago in my free time. I have just looked at a bunch of other coops and picked out what I liked and started building. I have no plans or drawings its all just kinda going together. It is 4X4X4 coop with the overall coop/run being 4' wide by 10' long. The run will extend under the coop. There is a 1' overhang on all four sides for the roof to help keep things dry. I will update with more pics as I get more done. Better be soon since my chicks showed up this morning.....Mike

  2. Well, Mike, looking good so far. You've got 6 weeks... or less before you decide they just have to get out of the house because you can not keep up with the dust! Welcome to BYC, too.
