Hi! This is our first chicken coop and I am proud to say my hubby made it from re-purposed materials we had laying around (minus the "fencing"/hardware cloth). Boy what a money saver! The dimensions are, roughly, 8' x 10'. I am thrilled with it, and so are our girls. There are still a few things we want to do to it but... for now... the chicks can, and have, moved in. Last night (January 19, 2013) was their first night in it. I was a nervous "mommy" and kept going out to check on them. They did great!
