We live on 1/2 acre in a semi rural town. My backyard is fenced in and my 3 dogs have access to it. I would like the chicks to be free range. The yard has lots of slopes and doesn't have many level areas. I was thinking that a chick chalet looked nice. We'll have three chicks but I want it to big enough in case I want a few more. I like the idea of a walk in coop though. Should I have a run? A shed would be too big, right? Or what about those a-frame tractor coops? I thought you had to have flooring to prevent predators? My husband works weigh too much and I homeschool so if we're building something it would need to be pretty easy. My husband has a carpenter friend though who could probably build something really nice for us but where can I find coop plans?
