    Louisiana coop- Picture heavy

    After convincing my husband in August we needed chickens, I quickly placed an order for day old chicks from Meyer Hatchery before he could change his mind. The chicks were to be delivered the first week of October, and everything I read said to have the coop finished before buying chickens, so...
  5. Pyxis' Hoop Coop

    Pyxis' Hoop Coop

    At the beginning of this Fall, I had a problem. Chicken math had set in, and I had gone from my beginning flock of birds that fit snugly in an 8x4 coop to a flock that numbered near thirty (not to mention the ducks, goose, and guineas!). Obviously, I needed a bigger coop. Let me begin by saying...

    Chicken Palace - Our first construction project!

    Hi All! This past spring, we decided to add two more chickens to our existing flock of 4. We purchased six Black Australorp chicks figuring that when they got older we would keep two and give four away. We already had two Golden Comets and two Buff Orpingtons that were a year old. Here are...
  7. EGG DROP COOP

    EGG DROP COOP

    So, when I started hinting around that I was "thinking" about getting chickens again (after 30 years), my husband, Richard, was all in! He could easily build a little lean-to along side the horse barn and we'd be good to go! Poor Richard. NOT what I had in mind! So, here is what has been a...
  8. My Chicken Mobile Stagecoach

    My Chicken Mobile Stagecoach

    I got the fever to have chickens once again and began researching my coop options a few years ago. I wanted a chicken tractor but it took me a long time (way too long = over analyzing) to finally settle on Rick Hathaway's unique design of the Chicken Mobile Stagecoach. I preferred something...
  9. Pole Barn Coop (Part Two: The Run)

    Pole Barn Coop (Part Two: The Run)

    This run took far longer to build than I anticipated thanks to the summer of never-ending rain here in Georgia. It was built flat in sections, the same way as the coop. You can see all four sections stacked here. I used concrete blocks on a layer of paver gravel and sand for the base...

    time on

    First let me say that neither my Husband nor I have never, ever built something without pre-drilled holes and directions. You know what I mean, the beautiful book shelf, or the functional TV stand, those kind of builds. But to design and build a Chicken Coop after looking at picture after...

    The Hill Family Coop ❤

    So we are completely new at owning chickens, but with LOTS and LOTS of research on this site, we were as ready as we could be to embark on the wonderful world of chicken ownership. I searched for weeks and weeks on what kind of coop I would want and just couldn't quite find the right one. So...

  14. Pole Barn Coop (Part One: The Coop)

    Pole Barn Coop (Part One: The Coop)

    I decided to give my first batch of chicks a nice roomy 6'x6' coop in the corner of my pole barn. The coop walls were built flat on the ground using 2x4's, 2x6's (for the base) and heavy-duty pocket hole joints. The pocket hole jig made framing a breeze even for a shorty like...

    Our coop was heavily influenced by SittyChick's Urban Coop https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/urban-coop which my wife and I found perfect for our needs within the confines of the city. A big thank you to them for the inspiration. You know what they say about imitation being the purest form of...

    Resin Chicken Coop

    When we first got chickens, I bought a small -coop. We only had 3 hens, so the size was more than enough. Cue to 2 years later, we have a total of 8 chickens. Since the coop was too small and it was difficult to clean it, I decided to get a new one. After looking at other pre-made coops, my...

    Just a chicken coop

    Recently moved back to Oregon from Alaska. Me and my wife wanted a little ranch for her horses. We figured while we now had property we might as well have a few more friends.

    Miller's South Jersey Coop

    My daughter had ben asking for chickens for almost a year. I'm a pushover but it took a long time for my wife to relent. We went and checked out some other chickens and coops in the area to make sure it was something we really wanted to do. Once deciding we were going to raise chickens I got the...
