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.
I am a plan designer, offering totally free plans to anyone, and posted this plan on my site so you can build it too! Enjoy!
