Building a Chicken Coop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have NO skills in building anything...maybe a wooden box LOL.  How could I make or simply build a coop to house maybe 4-6 Orphingtons ?  Thank you.  :idunno

Maybe a prefab small wooden shed? Depends on the space you have and the dollars I guess.

 

Good luck!

Thanks, I don't have a lot of money to spend but maybe I can find a used one for sale.  Just a hammer and nail girl. LOL

That would be a good idea - I'm not even that good with a hammer - more like a hammer and thumb guy! :)

build a box with enough square footage for the number of birds you want.......then inside the box, add a couple of roosts.  then build a smaller box for them to lay eggs in.  attach to the first big box.

 

put roof on first big box.
