My husband is anything but a handyman (sorry Hun) so I'm pretty much on my own for this.
My girls had a school project last year and came home with 4 chicks. They loved it so much, last week-end they went
to a farm with their Aunt (unbeknownst to me) and came back with 5 new chicks 2 hens and a roo and nowhere to put them
(Way to go Laurs!)
We're pretty low on wood after having to patch a good size hole in our roof from our last snowstorm,
so I'll have to break budget and go to Home Depot or Lowes.
I need a quick and easy (i'm all thumbs, but I try) coop design to house the above.

Our Summers vary but have gotten as high as 100 and although it's unusual we had a 6ft snow accumulation from last months winter storms. So I know we've got to be sure ventilation & heat a good.
Easy cleanup would be beneficial since I'm sure it'll be Mommy's chore soon enough.

Go to the coop design page on this site. There are a TON of coops to see. Maybe you'll find a design that would work for you.

If you aren't the building type, I'd recommend a dog house. It would need some modification and a run, but will get you started. I'd check craigslist or the freemarket for a used dog house (but that's just me) before buying anything new. Often you can even find one for free if you will come and get it.

Good luck!
