Gypsy Wagon Chicken Coop

    My 10 year old grand daughter fell in love with her Uncle's chickens and began begging her Dad for a coop. Her dad, my son, works long hours and didn't see a way to be able to do it. I volunteered to build the coop.

    I tried to make it as kid friendly as I could. I incorporated several features to make caring for chickens an easy chore. The coop is small but it has a little storage cupboard to keep feed and supplies nearby and accessible. There is a separate door for egg collection and nest access. The feeder will hold a few days worth of food and the same with the waterer. She can feed and water the birds without needing to enter the run.

    I gave her four Silkie pullets as they are fun birds.

    I got the idea from The Tractor Supply Store web site.

    I liked the idea but as I said above I needed to customize it for a young first time chicken carer.


    Easy clean out



    The doors in the back are a split dutch design

    The run is 3' x 6' x 4' high I built it in panels so that they could be transported easily.
