    Well today my roommates and I are going to go to my moms house to build a chicken coop. She said we can have whatever we can use, since our budget is $0 lol. So here's the thing. We live just outside of town, and we are in a duplex so space is very limited. We are looking to build a coop/run for 3, maybe 4 hens and a small tractor for the same amount of meaties. Size suggestions? The hens will get to free range for a couple hours a day but we would still like a small run. We'd like to stay on the smaller end of things as we have a fairly small backyard that is also home to some raised beds and still has to have enough room for 4 big dogs to go potty :p
