When the children decided they wanted a second batch of chickens to call their very own we agreed that if they bought them we would feed them. We never considered that they would need a home of their own until they were old enough to join the rest of our flock. After they lived nearly 4 weeks in our master bathroom, it was time to find them a new home, and so, a second coop was built before Verne's surgery.
Though it lacks trim yet, and isn't near as cute as the first coop, it's a wonderful home for the new little chicks, and it isn't an eyesore. Verne built it big enough to be permanent housing if need be, or in case we decide to raise some meat chickens as well.
There are certainly roosts, and plenty of space, but some seem to prefer sitting atop the feeders.
