    Simple, cost-effective coop/run combination

    This site has been a massive help this year in learning how to care for our new flock, so I'm super happy to be able to maybe give a little something back by contributing my design. Most of it is pretty common, but it's got a few differences that have been working really well and I think could...

    A Few Coops Built In Texas

    Here are a few coops I have built for some folks who needed them. I do this as a side-job, and really enjoy doing it.

  7. My cheap city chicken coop

    My cheap city chicken coop

    We don't live in a farm! More like a neighborhood close to downtown with neighbors. We had to make something that wasn't too big, cheap, and followed our city ordinance. We went with a medium sized coop that could fit about 6 chickens. We spent hardly any money at all. We recycled some wood from...

  10. The "No Chickens!" Coop

    The "No Chickens!" Coop

    "No chickens!" was my mantra to my wife when we moved out to the country. For the life of me, I could not understand why we would ever want to have chickens. It made absolutely no sense to me and I put my foot down. "No chickens." Yeah, as if. For Christmas I purchased a prefab coop in...
  11. What should I do with that old trampoline?

    What should I do with that old trampoline?

    This one is easy! We had an old trampoline frame in the back yard. We just reconfigured the pieces into the frame and added a few cheap items to make the coolest chicken coop ever. Our 10 chickens and 13 ducks have lots of room, especially with the attached chicken yard. Before: (ok this...

    The Insulated & Detachable Chicken Coop

    Our family (2 parents + 2 teenagers) are new chicken owners. After much research and debate, we built an insulated chicken coop, complete with a sky light, and a detachable galvanized steel run, and a roll-away nesting box for our 4 new Leghorns. The bulk of the construction took 3 weeks, taxing...

    First time builders!

    I had a plan, an item shopping list priced out and all my research done! Sadly my husband does not work like that!!! Designs are figured out in his head and materials purchased as needed.

  16. 10 pallets = 1 coop

    10 pallets = 1 coop

    I met a chicken lady several months ago, when I was looking for a rooster and a brood hen. She was kind enough to help me out with my chicken needs. I told her I'd built a "coop" out of sheet metal roofing. She didn't balk, she didn't criticize, she was very kind to me. She and her husband...
  17. Architectural Style Coop

    Architectural Style Coop

    We have a modern architectural style home in a rural setting. We wanted our coop to look good but also be functional. Our flock is lucky enough to free range most of the time, but not every day, so it was important for them to have enough space in the yard. We also got an accidental rooster...
