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 Carla DeWitt for sending in photos of her new coop.

"Here are a few pictures of my first attempt at building a coop. I used all scrap materials except for two panels of pressed board."

"The coop will house four pullets as soon as they arrive in mid-August.

I'm using small animal crates for nesting boxes. I've also made a sliding drawer for litter and droppings. Kinda looks like a building from a Dr Seuss book, but I'm pretty proud of it...Thanks."
