With your own hands and your own tools.
Try to think simple and use what you got handy first the chickensjust need basic stuff like shelter food and water you can get some good ideas from the coop design page on this site good luck

I took down an old horse fence because they were eating it & reused the wood to make a brooder. Also, I pick up old pallets of wood & use that to make chicken coops. The only thing I need to buy is hardware & wire. There are many Youtube videos for inspiration. Just google DIY chicken coops. Have fun!
I built a chicken tractor out of a trampoline frame. It works well. I can move it around so they have fresh grass to pick through. I'm a newbie and just joined BYC.

mobility work well. Just move every2 to 3 days. Just an idea.
I am working on a triple hutch/pen/coop now. The top section will be for rabbits , the middle for some quail and the bottom for more chickens. Made from a typical 4*4 swingset.
