    Rehabbed a dog house that I got off of Craigslist. The Silkies seem to be pretty happy with it and it passed inspection with one of the barn cats, Chops.

    Meet the "Mini Coop'R":

    What are the dimensions? I have 2 silkies and 2 cochin bantams (along with some other larger breeds). I was thinking about building the silkies and cochin bantams a separate coop from the larger breeds. They are all still small right now but will be needing their coop(s) before we know it!!! Also, how many silkies is that a home to?

    Dimensions are 4.5' long x 3' wide by 3' tall at the tallest point. It's home to only 3 Silkies (2 hens and a roo).
