We've build so much ourselves but I am getting kind of lazy and with two little kids under 3 in tow everything takes so much longer now so I was looking into coop kits. I am getting 4 hens (medium size) and plan on letting them roam the pasture for the most part but I do want to put them up at night. We're in South Texas so most of the time too hot is more of a probem than too cold. I found this chicken coop: http://www.wholesalechickencoops.com/hss09 chicken coop.html I like it because it includes the little run but the house seems awfully small (actual house footprint without nesting boxes is only 27 ½ x 22 x 25 ¾). Do chickens like to be close together when they sleep?
