    Been thinking about muy future coop design and am trying to get some ideas for a quarantine area. What is your set-up? Any pictures would be great, as I am a visual person.


    If it helps any, we'd likely be converting a wooden yard shed to be a coop. Aiming for it to be around 100 sq ft. with a little bit o' storage space.

    I have a dog kennel with a Chick-N-Hutch (reinforced with plywood around the sides, airgap for ventilation allowed) inside it for a broody retreat/hospital/chick growout pen. It is very useful.

    Always place chicken wire or hardware cloth (better) around the base as an owl pulled a chick through the chain link holes once.
