    I've poured through all the galleries of coops everywhere I can find online and my ideas for my 4 bird city coop keep changing as I read these boards and learn more and more. If you have a coop between the sizes of 16-24 square feet that is up on stilts over a run (or part of a run), could I see pictures of it? So issues I'm eager to see are:

    windows, ventilation, moveability, how the inside is configured, protection from predators, etc.

    Thank you for all the help so far and for any replies to this post!

    Me too...

    I am finding great images of coop after coop -- each time I'm thinking I've finally found the one I want to build.

    My likes all have a similar design/shape though, so I think I'm on the right track.

    90% complete when the picture was taken (now 98% done) and hoping to be finished very soon, it's approx 4ft x 4ft the run is quite a bit bigger. I did post pictures if before I moved ti to where I want it. i have the luxary of a skid steer so I can just pick it up and move it at will.

    My coop is 24 square feet but, and raised up doesn't have the run under it and isn't moveable, but I thought I'd still show you so maybe you can get ideas for the other stuff.

    (also if you plan on using deep litter method a word of the wise is to plan that into the design, I wish I would have.)
