    Hi guys I have a large hoop house style coop that is open all around with chicken wire. I really want to kinda re do it to make it overall more pleasing to the eye and more practical. I am wanting to make seperate areas for different breeding groups. Its about 176 sq.feet. I am wanting to extend it but dont know how to go about it.
    So my questions are overall:
    1) How can I add on another partially closed in [with walls] area to the hoop house without it looking thrown together or awkward?
    2) I need a bit of help with the design of breeding pens. With the shape of the hoop house should I place the breeding pens along the back?

    thank you! any ideas are appreciated!
