So we invested in some chickens this year. We have plenty of room on our land and made the plunge for some organic eggs in our future. Considering the bird/chicken flu issues going around it seems somewhat timely. Anyway, I used this design to build a coop for the seven chickens. It is very sturdy and perfect for the chickens in my post build opinion. There are kits out there that a pre-built but I found them expensive, small and not so well built. This one (the garden coop which is larger, than the arc (pictured)) meets the criteria of being large enough to walk in and easy to access. Overall I spent about $1000 in materials and about four solid days putting it together. I modified a few steps so please ask for advice if you go on this adventure of coop building. Enjoy!
