    I had no plans but had an idea! I made 5 panels 3ft x 4ft and 3 panels 3 ft x 2ft! I screwed them all together to get a 9ft x3ft base. I added to more of the tall panels in the pic. because I wanted it bigger

    I then built the frame for the main box 3ft.x 3ft.
    I made the roof slanted for air but I put a see through top for light instead of a window! I made 2- nesting boxes and cut out the door! I also added a door on the main frame for easy access. put on some corner braces and all done!


    I have 5 Hens and I thought that might be to many but they seem to be very happy and not crowded. I always want more. I wish I had some land in the country! Some day :)

    Interesting way to build but I get it. I always worry about them having room to roam around. They don't need too much when they sleep!

    This coop is built a little differently than most of the others we see. Most start with support frame and a coop/house built directly into it, with wire added later to the run portion. This one starts with completed frame panels that not only serve as walls to the run, but also as the frame for the shelter. The pictures break the steps down nicely, so that an amateur (like myself) con easily replicate the process. Very nicely done! Thank You!

    Wow! That is a simple coop with all the essential parts that just about anyone could build. I have a friend that over-paid to have his coop built that is missing the ventilation and outside nestboxes that your design shows. Nicely done!
