    i'm thinking about making a chicken coop and run and i like this design but i can't let them run in my backyard because my fence is, well i don't know how to explain it but they would get out, so i wold probably take out the door and add an uncovered section of the run. but ill probably use a lot of details from this.

    I live the nesting box for taking the eggs. Nice.

    i originally made this coop with plans from another instructable by randofo who has since taken the instructable off the website for reasons unknown to me. Because of this I never thought of saving the plans. Sorry...
