My dh brought home a 4x8 crate and wants me to use it for our first chicken coop. I'm drawing an absolute blank on how to do it. We're planning 6 or 7 hens and I'm not sure that 4x8 is big enough. Can anyone jump start my brain with ideas? I've looked at scores of coops & tractors on line and in my book, but I seem to have a mental block for this. I appreciate the help & I'll check back later in case you need more information. Thanks so much!
