Chicken Coops: 45 Building Plans for Housing Your Flock by Judy Pangman  - Just like houses, chicken coops come in all sizes and styles to meet the needs of every chicken family. Here are how-to drawings and conceptual plans for 45 coops -- from strictly practical to flights of fancy. If you are looking for lots of chicken coop ideas, unique coop features, and a lighthearted look at backyard and pastured poultry coops and their very interesting owners, then this is the right book for you. The book is a compilation of 45 real chicken coops, most of which were built by hand by their owners, many with scrap materials. Almost every coop featured in the book was customized to that owner's needs, whether it was according to the size of the salvaged wagon bed, truck chassis, or manure spreader on which it was built, or the size of the backyard or the width of the garden gate. The coops are presented with a floor plan, front and side elevations with dimensions, and as much information in the text as possible about coop features and materials used. The reader can choose the type of coop and favored features he or she wants and, with some construction knowledge, build a customized coop specific to his or her needs and site.
