The coop itself is a 3 foot by 3 foot square. I built the rest to fit what I had

I love your chicken coop but being a widow I have no one to help me make things. I am pretty handy but the pictures just weren't enough. I would have loved to see each step include neasurements and more detailed instructions on how to put together. I do love the coop and want to make it but without details I unfortunately can not do it. Thank you for the inspiration though.

I adapted the design for a rabbit hutch. We will add shingles on the roof and paint or add siding as well. So far the rabbits love it and it is working well!

With only three hens your roster may over breed the small flock and stress them out. A stressed out hen will lay less eggs or none at all. A good ratio is 1:12.

Are you going to build a ramp up to the door?

I will when I get me a bigger place. I'm going to put wire around the bottom later and fix a ramp

I have 14 baby chicks in it right now. I'm only planning on keeping 3 hens and 1 rooster.
