This is the chicken coop my father and I built this fall. I looked all over the web to try to find some free plans and finally found this plan at buildeasy.com. We made a couple changes in the framing and design..... no actually, we made several changes but it gave us the dimensions to start with. The coop is 6'x6'x7'3". I wanted a really sturdy structure so we used 2"x 6"s instead of 2"x4" for the base. The bottom has hardware cloth attached to it to prevent any rodents from eating...
Finally finished a chicken run for them. It's about 18' x 6 1/2' x 6 1/2'. I used 1/2" hardware cloth for the sides and ends. I used 2"x4" wire fencing for the top but when I found birds finding their way in I then covered the fencing with poultry wire also. I used Palruf (corrugated PVC sheets) for the 8' coming from the coop. It gives them a place to stay dry in the rain.
