    Norwegian style chicken coop

    Welcome to my chicken coop. Coop is located in Latvia, so winters here my be freezing. That's why I have to built it insulated. Coop size is 13' x 9' (4m x 3m). 1/4 for storage, 3/4 for chickens. I moved to countryside only a year ago and idea about chickens I dreamt about half a year earlier...

    FULL Sized bus - Chicken coop

    We have access to a free bus... was thinking of converting it to a chicken coop. We will have a huge outside run as well... What are your thoughts? Like I mention in the comments - I'm a little concerned about ventilation.. I would have to keep the roosts away from open window breezes.

    MN-Hardy Chicken Coop and Run On April 25, 2015 my husband and I packed up our kids and our dog (she travels with us wherever we go) and drove to pick up our very first 1-2 day old chicks. We had waited close to three years after moving into our current house before deciding that this was...
  4. N&M Coop

    N&M Coop

    IN PROGRESS I started by getting 6 chicks before the coop last year , was easier to get Hubby accustomed to the idea that way. Then I built a hoop coop when they outgrew the plastic tub & I had gotten more chicks due to visits to farmers stores too often. We ended up buying an already made...

    Our first coop and newest coop

    Here's a picture of our first coop. In this picture we hadn't put the doors on the left side that opened to the nest boxes. We didn't want to put the nest boxes in too soon so that they wouldn't roost in them. Here's what the nest box door and nests look like with curtains that I made and...

    Pepparkakor Hönshus (Gingerbread Henhouse)

    We aren't the kind of people who can just drop a couple thousand dollars on a new coop. But never fear! When we bought our new micro-farm, it came with THIS! Even more exciting, this aesthetically noxious, junky shed was filled to the gills with more junk! But if you know me, you know that...

    "You can take the girl off the farm but you can't take the farm out of the girl." (My mini-barn)

    We live in a country sub-division in Northwestern Ohio known as Adams Acres . I grew up on a small farm-- we didn't raise crops but we dappled in all sorts of animals from kittens and puppies to livestock-- goats, lambs, rabbits, pigs, cattle and a few chickens. Naturally, you can take the...
  10. The Nest Egg

    The Nest Egg

    We started this project with significant disagreement regarding “how big” & “how many”. She wanted 10 chickens with room for more and I wanted 4 in a 3’x4’ hut on 4x4 posts. After months of research and review of dozens of designs we came to the finite conclusion that we still disagreed...

  12. Bonnie's Coop

    Bonnie's Coop

    Well, after a couple months of work I finally got the coop "Chicken Ready" and moved the chicks in a couple days ago. It turned into a much bigger project than I had anticipated when deciding to build rather than buy a kit. This was the first thing I had built anywhere near this complicated...

    The Sugarloaf Domino Affect Coop

    My wife and I began talking about chicken husbandry about a year ago and then attended a local seminar put on by our Extension Service this past February. Things just snowballed from there (with lots of reference to "BackyardChckens") as the final decision was made to jump into preparation...

    Cedar Acres Coop!

    Our coops are actually quite old.. built by my family in the late 1960's. They were all built using plans from a correspondence course on poultry through a university. We have three identical coops. All of my pictures are of the one we just painted (a fresh coat of paint looks so nice!), and the...

    The Lafayette Chicken Compound

    If you asked me even a year ago if I would ever own chickens, I would probably look at you funny and say "No, I doubt it..." My girlfriend and I came to own chickens when the house we bought had existing outbuildings, and one of them had been used to raise bantam roosters for show in the past...

  20. Loopy Coop

    Loopy Coop

    Loopy Coop is just reference to the children's book we have called 'The Loopy Coop Hens'. My husband calls it the chicken palace but that name was already taken. The idea for this coop was taken from a couple others on BYC but slightly enlarged as well as a design I had seen somewhere else...
