I have been searching the internet for the past several months for ideas of building a chicken coop in my backyard for my hens.
I ended up buying 8-8 ft posts, some 6ft high field wire and some bird netting for the top. I already had their housing which consisted of a "Hen House" with a small run.
I made the enclosure 12 foot by 12 foot and topped it with the 14 x 14 bird netting (only 8.00 Bird-X).
I am currently altering the hen house by taking off the small enclosure that had been attached previously.
The whole enclosure cost around 112.00 to build and turned out great.
I put two old wooden rocking chairs in the enclosure for the hens and for me and they are very happy now!
