I went back and forth on what I wanted too. I decided on a tall coop and I'm REALLY glad I did. I can walk in and clean it with overall ease, access feeder and waterer with ease, etc. I eventually plan to add on or build a 2nd coop too, but right now I have a 4wx8lx6h (I REALLY wanted to build an 8x8 but didn't have the funds). My run is decent size too, so I'm happier with that than a smaller run.
