Is there a difference between a "coop" and a "chicken house" or is it only a matter of semantics?
This is my understanding:
Coop = chicken house = hen house
(That last one may only technically be true if you don't have roosters!)
Run = pen = chicken yard
tomato tomato hehehe.
Just a matter of where you are in the country etc.
But most of the time a chicken house is what you call a commercial chicken farm. bc the chickens stay in the "houses" all their lives and resemble a large greenhouse.
coop = 1: a cage or small enclosure (as for poultry); also : a small building for housing poultry
2 a: a confined area b: jail
Cheers and good day.
