    I would love to see pictures of the layout inside the coops. I have the hardest time of the placement of roosts and nest boxes. We are building a new coop for my Bantam Cochins.
    Thank you!

    Kelly, this is my Firetower Coop, the one you saw when you were here. It's about 27 sq ft, if I got the hexagonal area right, and it works okay. I prefer the "walk in" coops, but it does do well in the layout.

    Here is my coop addition, which could be used as a separate unit from the original coop it was an add-on for:

    Thanks! I prefere the walk in kind too, but we have our house for sale and don't want to do anything big.
    I can't wait to move so I can have a REAL chicken coop!
    I just have a hard time figuring out where to put the door, the nests, the food, and the roosts in a 4x4 hen house.


    Keep the pics coming!!!!
