    Hi! Here is a small coop we designed and my husband built for our bantams. Technically, it was supposed to be a moveable tractor but it's double-walled and fully insulated so it's really heavy to move lol.
    The coop footprint is 6' x 4' and the house part is 4' x 4'. It has a sliding vent for adjustable ventilation and an adjustable pop open window in the door. It also has the exterior nest box with 2 small boxes inside. We have 5 bantam Cochins that call it home! [​IMG]

    We built another version of this coop with a slant roof and 4' x 8' footprint too [​IMG]

    I made mine from all recycled materials. Scrap pieces of wire, a cooler, a window on either side, and a divider in the middle for the duckwing bantams :) there are three chickens in this one.[​IMG]
    My other one was also made completely from recycled materials...
