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 Karen Bird in West Jordan, Utah for sending in this photo of her coop.


"After lots of reading, thanks to your website, I now have my own chicken coop! We were given 3 chickens from a friend and had kept them in a stall in the barn. I came across your website and started to plan....
The bottom of the coop is made from two pallets. I put eye bolts on each side of the coop and use a tow chain to hook it onto the four wheeler and move it around the yard.

Now, onto building the greenhouse!!

Thanks for the inspiration and guidance!"
