There are thousands of plans, designs and ideas for building a chicken coop. They range from elaborate two story structures, tiny old west towns and right on down to a small doghouse surrounded by a few feet of chicken wire. Before you invest a lot of money and time setting up one of those costly coops, learn about building chicken coops the easy way so you can enjoy the fruits of your labor sooner.
Our coop happens to be built as part of an open faced barn with a dirt floor, so we have to actually shovel it out.
Put chicken wire fence all around the coop to keep unwelcome guests out. Remember that some animals will dig beneath fences to get into the chicken coop, so play it smart and bury the fence partly below the ground. We buried ours in an L shape. Building chicken coops the easy way makes the work of owning chickens easier in the long run.
