    For all the information out there, I cannot seem to find FREE coop designs anywhere. Lot of talk and a lot of sales pitches, but nothing I can use. Does anyone have information for construction of a chicken coop for 15+ chickens that they would be willing to share. I am retired and am trying to reduce my costs. I currently have a small coop (4 chickens) but want to upgrade and expand at the same time. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

    I'd like to be the first to welcome you to this addiction. You will find all sorts of helpful information for building a coop here. Take time to look and study all the coops. People here are very friendly and eager to share their experiences.
    Good Luck [​IMG]

    I renovated the inside of our old hay shed. You dont have to buy a plan, make one yourself on graph paper
