Style of Chicken Coop???

16 years ago

I am still obsessing about chicken coops. We decided an 8 by 10 shed for approximately would work well, and then I started looking at alternative designs. Is there any advantage to one design over another? I want it to be:

- somewhat attractive as it will be relatively close to our house;

- easy to clean;

- appropriate for housing chickens year-round (big enough so they won't get overcrowded in the winter when they spend less pecking on the lawn);

- easy for the kids to check for eggs and interact with the chickens (our main reason for getting the birds)

Is a retro-fitted shed with attached yard our best bet, or should I consider something different?
