    I was looking at coop kits & plans tonight, and I came across this one:
    Green Roof Chicken Coop

    I've never heard of it before, but I thought it might be a good option for anyone who is looking for a stealth coop. Unlike the "trash can coop", which doesn't really look like a trash can to me, I think this really would be pretty invisible to the neighbors, especially with plants growing on top of it as shown on the site.

    Dimensions are about 4 x 4.5 and 4' tall - found that info on the FAQ page.

    It's available as a set of plans, as a pre-cut kit, and as a fully-assembled coop.

    I hope this helps someone!

    That certainly looks nice. And better/bigger and more chickenfriendly than the garbage can style stealth coop.More expensive but it may be worth getting the plans and doing it yourself. . Good idea to have a"green roof". Good find

    Nice... I have a couple pens that are similar. They are 10 X 4 X 4.5 high. I'll soon have a roo and four hens in each and they'll take turns free ranging the backyard in the afternoon.

    The 8 X 12 coop will have two roos with 18 pullets.
