As much as I'd rather build I may have to order a prefab coop. No skills or time to build. I've been looking and looking and thing I'm down to two possibilities. I have four regular sized hens and one banty. This one http://www.greengardenchicken.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=302 Id probably modify it by adding a floor to the bottom, perches, and nesting boxes on top. I like how ventilated it is for Louisiana summers. Or this one http://www.greengardenchicken.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=281 Seems like enough space for everyone to have their own room! Lol. Is it practice for chickens? I realize I'll have to add hardware, and tweak both of them to make them secure. The coop is for me to lock them up at night. During the day they have a huge enclosed chicken yard to roam.
