Chicken Coop Plans - Dreams

As I research, learn and price materials at Home Depot, I continue to modify, change, throw out and start over with designing my chicken coop.

My goal is to get started building in the next two weeks. But before I do that I have to commit to a style and well - I have commitment issues- As my hub knows I have to REALLY love something to commit - hence he is in the picture!!

I like them all but the Zen Den is my favorite. I think it's the circular nesting spaces. Too cool.

I do like the circular nesting spaces of the Zen Den but I like the alternate functions of the other two. Oh, so hard.

I'm digging the circular nesting parts. I also like the simplicity of that design, as something you'll look out on from your house.

I can only see #2 and #3, but I like the one with the circular nesting areas. Its functional and modern. The other one is cool, too, but more expected.

Wow I've been offline fir the better part of a month and I seem to have a ton if updates. I'm working on catching up on them now, I like coop idea number 1 and coop idea #3 is a close second. Can't wait to see your chicks!

I like the first design that you made, it is the most functional and it has a great design.

I bet you've been pretty busy with the chicken coop plan. How's it going so far? Did you start building? I'm dying to see what it looks like finished.

Before I move on to my news, I noticed something in the sidebar: you read FABLES! OMG you are even cooler than I thought. I have to admit I only read like the first chapter of the first book, but that's only because I love it so much. If I keep reading I have to get the next volume which is quite expensive and before I know it I spent all my money on the complete series. Given you're at volume 11 I take it it stays as good as it started. I am so gonna continue reading now, but after tomorrow, which brings me to my news.

Tomorrow is admission day! It starts at 8:15 and lasts till 15:30, I hope I'll make it through the whole day, but it's gonna be fun I'm sure. That doesn't mean I'm not getting a little nervous though. I still have to pack some of my paintings, but for the most part everything is packed and ready to go. I think I'll post a few last minute drawings on my blog.

I hope you are doing well and good luck with the coop!

I like the last one ! The circular nesting net in the zenden looks very uncomfortable for the chickens.
