    For just $100 in lumber and supplies, and a few hours, we DIYed this coop for four hens with 10 square feet of covered coop space, 40 square feet of run (with rain cover)!

    This is a fast, economical but very functional coop that is portable.

    We just needed a super basic and inexpensive coop for our four chickens to keep them protected from predators. We will be building a larger coop for the winter soon.

    This coop cost about $100 to build and my husband and I put it together in just a few hours!

    This A Frame Style Chicken Coop has everything - an upstairs that folds open for nesting box, a run that is about 40 square feet, and it is portable, so no cleaning required! I did modify the end to have an access door as well to allow the hens to free range during the day.

    Love the idea of it being portable, but the chicken wire will not protect them from predators, especially if there isn't a way to close them up in the top at night(with ventilation, and roost) thank you for sharing the plans for people to see how it is built.
