D&D's Chicken Coop

Hi, We started out with a small chicken coop from Home Depot, after a 6 months the house seemed too small for our two chickens. We did some research and figured it would be best to just have our coop built, instead of purchasing another larger house for the girls. The guy we had built our coop didn't really have any initially plans on what it would look like, but we had a vision of what would look good and make a statement in our yard through our lengthy conversations and discussions. It took him about 5 weekends to finish the coop and run and well worth the wait! We... read more

Atlanta, Georgia Urban Chicken Coop!

  Hi everyone! My wife and I purchased a home approximately 2 miles away from the downtown Atlanta Capitol in the Grant Park area. A couple friend of ours live in the same neighborhood and their house came with a chicken coop. We were completely shocked at the fact that backyard chickens is a thing! Once we visited and saw how awesome their coop is, we were immediately hooked. My wife loved the idea of having fresh local eggs, her background is public health and nutrition. With a background in mechanical engineering, my thought was how fun it would be to build a... read more

First very small coop

So it says i don't have permission to put a picture.  So i'm supposed to just talk about it??

Jared's Sloped Coop!

I wanted chickens for several years, but didn't start the process until a couple of years ago. I started researching online, and I found this wonderful site. Over the course of a summer, I built the coop; using materials my Dad brought home from work.                         I usually worked on the coop at night, with music, and beer.   (What could be better?  ) The coop was built in the garage, thus the ability to build at night. Moving the coop, once it was finished was the hardest part. Those lawn mower wheels were used beyond their capacity and failed.... read more

I will try to build an incubator :) I was thinking about buying one online, but the good ones run about $200+  so I will see if my 'KYDLE-Bator' is worth building!  please stay tuned and I will update as I make progress! Thanks.  I will be making two versions of this incubator, one will be a regular styrofoam cooler you can find at walmart (or where I will be getting mine which is United Supermarkets) which will be named 'KYDLE-Bator 01' and the other I will build from scratch out of wood so I can make it however I want to instead of being limited to the dimensions of... read more
