Chicken Coop Plans – How to Build Chicken Coops, Houses, and Tractors
My name is Gina and for the last five years I have been the editor of the Keeping Chickens Newsletter.
The keeping chickens newsletter is a community of 1000s of wonderful chicken keepers and is great for some general coop ideas and photos but often missing the essential building details.
The trouble with searching for the ‘best’ chicken coop plans, is that what is best for one person is not necessarily the best for another, but during my years of publishing the Keeping Chickens Newsletter I have had several sets of coop designs created which have successfully been used in building many backyard chicken coops.
I wanted to put together a collection of chicken coop designs that would help everyone get the coop they wanted. Coop designs that include the diagrams and plans needed to help build them, but most importantly that are not just ideas for coops, but real coops that have actually been built and used.
Use a coop design ‘As Is’ or just pick and choose the ideas you like from the collection to build your own ‘poultry palace’.
It’s true, you can save hundreds of dollars by building your coop – and sometimes build one almost for free if you use reclaimed materials – but this isn’t just about saving money by building your own coop…
