We started our coop with a 5x10 dog kennel and a box. This is what it has evolved into: The base We had leftover lumber from putting a new deck on the house so we figured hey why not We bought a prefab building to use as the actual coop: Then we just cut a small hole in the side: And framed it in: Here is a pic of our supervisor: There are vents on both top corners: Then we insulated and put plywood up on the walls: Hubby built a roost on one wall: Then we built a nesting box out of an old cabinet and some buckets: We then expanded the size of the run to 10X10 and put a tarp on part of it: And for being a wonderful hubby I got him one or maybe a few of these: It's not as cool looking as a lot of your coops but it works for us, is functional and the flock seems to like it. I do let them out during the day to free range when it is nice out. It's been a fun journey. I had chickens as a child and remember raising them and having my favorites but I forgot how much fun they could be. I will continue to add pics of my flock as we grow.
