The Egg Plant( in purple)

I bought a derkensen pre built 8x10 playhouse. Had them paint it eggpkant purple. Added my chicken dream specks and built a run! Not bad for a single lady! Here is where it all started. I dug 2 ft holes and planted 4x4post in concrete. My grandson helped dig a couple of the holes.

I made feeders i can accesses from out side the coop from pvc pipes. I put in 2 waterers... read more

Blue on Blue (on Blue) Kiwi Urban Coop

My family previously had a coop, but it was a small beginners coop. I'm embarrassed by our previous coop & was determined to do better this time. This coop is 1.2m x 2.4m x 1.2m. We have 6 shavers (New Zealand's egg machine) and may add a couple of other birds to get some interesting eggs for the kids.   After 2 years away, and countless hours on the internet, I have designed my simple but pretty, in my opinion, back yard coop.     Most New Zealand coops are for farms/lifestyle blocks and are not aesthetically adequate for our urban back yard. We can see our coop... read more

Kansas City Backyard Coop and Retaining Wall

I figured I'd start a coop page to "pay it forward", so to speak. My husband and I are building a modified version of the Wichita Cabin Coop. I grew up in Wichita so it only made sense to honor my roots :) Plus, the coop design is amazing!   In order to accommodate this particular coop, we had overcome several obstacles. To be in compliance with city code we had to locate the coop 100 feet from any neighboring residential structure. This left us with exactly one option and that option is on a very steep hill and backs up to a wooded area full of critters that would... read more

The Condo-Coop

Welcome to our coop, brought to you by Dad! This coop is under construction to add a huge addition. Here are some pics! This is the entire coop. It can fit up to around 16 chickens. This rock wall and planter were built from rocks we had growing out of the ground. This is the outside of the henhouse part. It has a door for easy cleaning, and shingles, so cute! Here is the inside of the henhouse. This is the other henhouse. It is a bit smaller, and hardly anyone uses it XD Here is another section of the coop, a small foraging area. With a hallway leading... read more

An Oregon Backyard Coop for 5

Hello all! Here’s our coop, with plans, such as they were, and the story of it.     Much researching and brainstorming occurred before we broke ground. The first consideration, and frankly the hardest decision of all, was where to situate the thing on our property. We have a lot-and-a-half in a suburban area, and I’m a pretty avid gardener so I tend to want to use every inch of sunlit earth to grow food.   Ultimately we decided on an area that is at the south edge of our backyard.  Our southern property border sports a tall hedge of arbor vitae – maybe 15′ – which... read more

Log Cabin / Cordwood Coop

  Like many, I started with just a couple chickens.  Each year I get a couple more and I don't think that will change any time soon.  With that in mind, it was time to upgrade my little coop.   My original Coop ~~>  http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/the-habitat-hut-re-used-furniture-coop   This project took several months simply due to gathering materials and trying to construct this after work or while watching my 2 yr old.  Much of the materials I was able to scavenge, I to try keep my costs low.  This took basic carpentry skills.        I started by laying... read more

Built my coop from scratch using scrap and donated materials...

I started with some scrap 2x4s and made a 4'x6' floor I put the joists 18" on center so I could use less wood and figured it didn't have to be super load bearing... Then I started adding legs and I made the legs two foot long to put the floor off the ground to help with cleaning as well as being able to later store things under. I used two full length 2x4s in the back corners so the coop would be tall enough to stand in with a roof on... I made the front two corners 6 1/2' to make the front 4 foot inside the coop and give the roof enough angle to let snow fall off in... read more
