    I've decided that I need, yes NEED a second coop. Mostly I wanted one that was mobile so I could use it as a tractor in the summer. Got to talking with a buddy of mine who also keeps birds and we decided to build two. I spent a couple minutes sketching it up in autocad trying to get the most coop for the least amount of materials. Here is where we stand today.

    That is the cutest coop ever! It is almost too cute for chickens, it looks like it could be a doll house!

    Quote:Dunno yet, thats phase two. Probably 4x10 or so. The run is going to be a seperate piece moved all on it's own so it can be a pretty good size, but it's still got to be manageable and CHEAP.
