Chicks are coming in 20 days and I need to have a coop plan soon. My biggest issue is my dh is in a wheelchair. There is no way we can afford one with a wheelchair ramp so My idea was to build one that is almost like a rabbit hutch, on legs. I was hoping it would be 8 feet long, 3.5 feet wide and 4 foot high(the box and then on legs) If it's on legs then he can reach in and do chicken house chores if I'm unable to. The nest boxes are going to be going (with inside acess)outside so that the coop has more room. Is there any reason a coop can't be long most I see are square? down falls of having large doors opening at the sides like a hutch? so many options, so many down sides!
