So I wanted to design and build my own coop. I don't need anything fancy. Just easy to clean and safe for the chickens. I plan on having six chickens. Apparently chickens share boxes. I did not know this when I drew these. My previous chickens were spoiled indeed! I also plan on having linoleum on the floors inside and hardware cloth instead of chicken wire as many posters have suggested. (thanks guys!) I don't have the final dimensions yet, so these are just VERY preliminary sketches. This is my preliminary penned coop design: Here is a penned rendition of the inner parts: Chicken doodles to finish. I changed goody2230's Google Sketchup design to fit my needs. Materials: 6 roofing panels, 3 rolls of hardware cloth, 4x4s for the foundation, blocks and ground gravel for the foundation, 2x2s for the frame, roofing brackets, gate latches, spring for the door, 5 OSB boards, wood stain, barn red paint, sand and hay. I am sure I'll need more things than listed, but I'll deal with that when it's time. Just gonna go with the flow! Any tips or suggestions?
