    We are building a small coop that will house 5 standard chicks until we get our bigger coop finished in the fall. When the big coop is done, I would like to use the small coop for 2-3 silkies.

    Please share any info about the best kind of coop for silkies. I live in Wisconsin, so I have to keep in mind cold snowy weather.

    Please include pictures, the more detailed the better.

    Thanks,
    Joanne

    Here's what we used for our Silkies, after our main coop/run was finished:

    Hope this is some help!

    We use a calf hutch we bought off of craigslist that DH converted and added nest boxes. My silkies don't roost so no need for roosting poles. It works great. [​IMG]

    It's a prefabricated coop from Ware Manufacturing.
