    Does anyone have any really easy coop designs? I currently have two 3 month old bantam chicks (black frizzled cochin and silver duckwing) they are living in one of those outdoor rabbit hutches. Kind of like this:

    Well, right now it is quite roomy for them and I let them out to run around too. But they aren¬ít fully grown yet and I am getting three more day old bantam chicks in a couple weeks. So I am afraid it will be too small for them when they get older and with three more chickens too. So if anyone knows of a really simple coop design then that would be great. I am not very good at making things, so the easier, the better. And if anyone has some advice too. Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    Have you thought about just adding to what you already are using? It could be made to work for a few bantams fairly easy I'd guess.
