Our HomeMade Chicken Coop

Our homemade chicken coop is a hybrid between two plans we liked in a book checked out from the local library.  It cost approximately $125 to make the coop; however, it is much bigger than we need it to be.  It could easily house 6-10 chickens.  We are looking forward to this house being a home to many chickens over the next several years!

The chickens will also have an area to run around in outside of their pen.  That is still being constructed.

I have seen coops made from wire and a plastic dog house.  The coop could be made from whatever you want, as long as it keeps the predators out.

  1. I like this design! I've got to build one for a breeding pen and have been trying to plan it out. I'll have to show this to my hubby.
