When keeping chickens, one of the most important things you need to consider is the kind of home you make for them. A chicken coop, chicken run and nesting boxes are essential for happy, healthy hens. So we would like to know: What Do Your Chickens Live In?

My husband built a coop on a repurposed trailer we found on our property. The run is built on an unwanted frame of a green house that a neighbor inherited when they bought their house. Gotta love using "found" stuff! The chicken wire, hardware cloth, fencing, zip ties, roofing, and some of the lumber weren't free, so did cost about $300 all told.
