In the very near future (month of Oct.) we're going to start building a new coop with attached run area. I've been looking over all the coop designs at BYC and still cannot come up with exactly how I want it to look. The coop / run will be attached to this 12' x 18' foot metal storage building. I do want to continue with the color pattern no matter what the choice. With the building already having the barn style roof wouldn't it make since to go with a 'lean-to' style coop and run? Whatever the outcome of this coop / run project it will be home to 6 French black copper Marans pullets and one Marans cockerel. There is a small creek which runs behind this building. So, any advice you can lend me will be greatly appreciated and taken into consideration in building this.
