    If you could rebuild your coop, no budget, no limits, what are some things you'd add or change?

    If I had limitless options for my coop, I'd make an octagonal coop with covered runs [​IMG]

    Then I'd probably wake up from my dreams.

    I would love to have a automatic chicken door opener.

    Would it be electricity run or solar powered?

    I'd make it much, much bigger. Isn't that what every chicken owner wants? [​IMG]

    More windows. I like the size of my coop, it limits me from going chicken crazy and getting too many birds. I've got one window in the coop but I'd like to have about four. Windows are expensive though!

    If I was limited to one thing it would be the automatic chicken door.

    If I got two my second would be why did I put the human door inside the run????? What was I thinking.

    My Coop
    Wish it was bigger, more floor space and set up to section off more than just one extra growout/isolation pen.
    Solid roofed run for more winter space without shoveling.
    Other than that My Coop turned out pretty great due to much research and planning before building, and the fact that the building already existed.
