Chicken coop.

Hi all.
Looking for advice on a chicken coop for 4 to 6 hens, with run.
What would be the best options in size wise.
Also where is the best place to buy coops.

small shed an convert it

Buy a small plastic shed, and buy galvanised welded wire mesh, ask the company and make sure the mesh is fox proof. the smaller the holes the better to stop rats getting in. Then convert the shed and build the run in front of it. Plastic is durable, maintenance free and not mites friendly
Don't use chicken wire, it is designed to keep hens in but it doesn't keep predators out.
