So here's the deal. I only have ONE coop. It's split down the middle (ducks on one side, chickens on the other). My dilemma is that my ducks are filthy piglets....not to mention they are MEAN & they have KILLED one of my Sultan ROOS! so I've decided to build something else (aka another coop) for them with a little bit of a different design. And of course, that will leave an EMPTY side of my already existing coop-which must be filled. : Here is my exsisting coop: The runs & the inside of the coop are split. The coop itself is 8 x 8 and the runs, I'm not sure of? They are about 6' tall, though... A view of the front--it's not painted yet, but you can get the idea. ANYWAY== My idea is to build something that I can also split down the middle like the coop I already have, but I need it to be economical, as well. Our last coop is pretty nice but it did cost about $2k to build, so I need something that won't cost as much & it doesn't need to be as pretty or elaborate, just functional. One side will house my ducks, the other--my Sebastopols & Brahmas. The coop I have now, will house my bantam Sultans & my standard Cochins. This new coop will be located on the opposite side of our property from our other coop & it will not have electricity to it, unless we run an extension cord out to it. In additon, rather than runs, this coop will have a yard--which is about 100' long x 50' wide? I am planning to use 5' "horse fence" & bury it in the ground, a little bit as a barrier. Our dogs will have access to roam around & guard the area, but it won't be a covered area--but I think my geese, muscovies & larger fowl will be okay from flying predators??? So I'm needing designs which can house multiple types of poultry (including filthy ducks/geese) and a design which will allow me to also house chickens, comfortably. We do have quite a bit of metal roofing left over from our house as well as a couple of those clear roofing panels to use....so I won't have to buy any roofing stuff.... I don't think the coop will have to be THAT large, since the birds will have access to a huge yard to roam about in, but they'll be overnighting in the coop....???? I have 5 muscovy hens & one drake. I am hoping to have 3 or 4 geese & I've got 4 brahma hens & 1 brahma rooster. If I could find another breed of chicken that could defend itself against my ducks, I'd add those as well...but so far, no such luck. I thought the bantams, although small, would be able to run/fly get away from the ducks, but that wasn't the case. So I'm hoping to stay around a few hundred bucks on the coop (I found the fencing I need at Home Depot for $125 & I already have the roofing stuff).... Is this possible??? HELP!
