MN-Hardy 7'x8' Chicken Coop with Attached Run

On April 25, 2015 my husband and I packed up our kids and our dog (she travels with us wherever we go) and drove to pick up our very first 1-2 day old chicks. We had waited close to three years after moving into our current house before deciding that this was the right time to get our chickens. We were all very excited when the day finally came to go and pick up our chicks. Our dog was very interested in the faint rustling coming from the box.   The previous winter was filled with researching (chickens, coop types, coop construction, how to care for chickens, etc.)... read more

Our New Fancy Coop - Coopmom56

This is the story of our new coop. Our grown kids call it the chicken palace. My coworkers say I can rent it out for $800 a month on AirBnB, and my stepmom wants to stay there when she comes to visit. My husband looked at a few plans, listened to what I wanted, and worked from a design in his head, so I have no plans to upload for you. Hopefully the pictures will tell the story. He is a freak about leveling and "squaring up". If I held the measuring tape/post level/straight level once, I held them a thousand times. But the result is an awesome coop that should last... read more

Farmer’s Acre Red and White Chicken Coop Tractor

Farmer’s Acre Red and White Chicken Coop Tractor There are two videos that show the coop before we sold it.  These were the only pictures that we had of this one.  Once again I didn’t save the plans.  My wife is going to kill me for that.  She really liked this coop, and I know I will have to build it again someday. It was a really neat coop especially if you don’t have much room in your yard.  Having it on wheels made it very easy to move.         read more
