    D&D's Chicken Coop

    Hi, We started out with a small chicken coop from Home Depot, after a 6 months the house seemed too small for our two chickens. We did some research and figured it would be best to just have our coop built, instead of purchasing another larger house for the girls. The guy we had built our coop...

    Coop add ons!

    This is the semi final coop after 3-4 revisions to keep adding footage. We started out with a 4x4 foot inside and a 4x10 foot run underneath. Then I added on another 4x4, 2 story area with the wooden door. That then became a duplex with the big girls on top and babies on the bottom. Eventually...

    Chicken run made from gala or party tent

    How to make a chicken run without tools. You only need a pair of scissors or a knive to cut the rope. Last year I decided to make our old party tent of 3x3 meters into a extra run for my chickens. This is how I started: And this is the result: Because the chickens already have a small...
