Build Chicken Coops

Chicken Coop Design and Construction

Chicken coop photos and design ideas from the subscribers of our free Keeping Chickens Newsletter. Many coop design and construction photos as well as detailed descriptions of the building of several traditional - and not so traditional - chicken coops!

Thanks to Mel Schmerler for the above photo of her coop.


"I am a newbie, and after studying your site and some of the links, spent the Christmas vacation building a chicken ark. I am attaching a picture. I am not a carpenter and haven't built many things, but I was able to put this together using some pictures you provided…when it gets a little warmer, I will add the chickens."
