  1. Chicken Coop

    I built this coop a couple of years ago. It is way too big for the number of chickens I have, but it looks nice in the backyard. The window seemed like a good idea for us to look in on the birds, but I wouldn't recommend it because it is something we rarely do (luckily the window only cost...
  2. Chicken Coop

    Chicken Coop. A-frame design with sliding drawers in nesting box for easy cleaning. Learned a lot from this project!
  3. Coop DeVille

    When my wife and I got married two years ago, we lived in a third floor apartment. She had always wanted chickens but the bath tub was the only place to put them at our current residence so, we decided to wait… We bought a house in late December last year and as soon as she could she ordered 5...
  4. chicken coop

    Before moving to Colorado, I lived in the sticks, in Hutto, Tx. My wife wanted a flock of chickens for eggs, so I built her a coop. It's made of pine 2×6s and OSB. The front flips up for cleaning and feeding. The top is painted with behr exterior paint, and the frame is stained. The underside...
  5. fancy chicken coop

    Built this post & beam chicken house for my wife in the summer of '04. We thought the 2" x 2" welded wire covering the entire yard & 3 ton of crushed rock would stop any potential predators - boy were we wrong. One night a mink stopped by to kill 17 of our 25 chickens…now I know why they make...
  6. "The Coop de Hilton"

    It has been awhile since my last project. Needless to say I am getting wood worker fever - if there is such a thing? So, to get back in the mix I decided it was time to tackle a new project. This year we decided that we are going to raise chickens for eggs and poultry. So, I decided to build...
  7. Chicken Coop

    My son asked me to make him a chicken coop. I have access to pallets, so … I took the bottom off and connected them together. I filled in the gaps in the slats with other slats. I put a floor in it and slopped the roof. When it was completed, I loaded it on to a rented trailer and hauled to...
  8. Walk-in Chicken Coop

    Last Summer I designed and built a chicken coop for one of my sisters. There's an Instructable for this at https://www.instructables.com/id/4x8-Walk-in-Chicken-Coop/ A couple of things I thought I'd point out on this build. The nest box hinges are covered with flex-seal tape - works great as...
  9. Chick Coop de Gras'

    I've been wanting some laying hens for a while and got the go ahead just recently. The coop's footprint is 8'x4' with a front wall of 7' and a back wall or 6' so I don't bump my head like I used to in other coops and I have a good 4:1 slope for the heavy rains we sometimes get. The windows...
  10. portable chicken coop

    I roll it around next to our big oak trees and keep them fertilized.
  11. Backyard Chicken Coop

    After Christmas this year we decided to get some egg laying chickens. This of course meant I got to build a coop! Bigbox 2×2s and cedar fencing makes up the body. Put together with pocket screws (greatest invention ever), chicken wire, cursing, and hardware cloth. I dadod the coop walls to...
  12. Chicken Coop

    This was a commissioned project, the clients wanted a pullout floor, easy access to collect the eggs, specific dimensions and I had to disassemble this bugger and reassemble it onsite. Couple of the challenges I found were that the ground was uneven and despite the fact that I squared the base...
  13. Fowl Woodworking

    For some unknown reason, my wife decided that we needed chickens to complete the homestead. I grudgingly went along and thought it would at least be an opportunity to design and build the ultimate chicken coop. After experimenting with several designs, and going through a stack of...
  14. Checken Coop

    I've got the happiest chickens in the neighborhood and they love their new coop. The roof removes on each side for easy access to eggs and cleaning, there are 6 beds. I put a shower liner on the bottom for easy cleaning and the bed walls are removable so I can hose out if necessary. Walls are...
  15. Backyard Chicken Coop (in memory of Ted)

    My father-in-law, who was a dairy farmer for many years, passed away earlier this year. In his memory, my wife and I decided to start raising backyard chickens for the eggs. The first trick was to find a place for the coop. We decided to keep it close to the house and away from the edge of the...
  16. Chicken coop from pallets- we all gotta start somewhere!

    I know that this project is no where near the cool, beautiful and useful items shown on here. But this was my first real project that I did with wood of all kinds. I also made many phone calls to my Dad for guidance on how to make certain things for the coop. I had originally planned for a...

    This is just a simple cabinet construction to mimic a Chicken Coop that I used as a towel rack. This was one of my first projects I made around 5 years ago. It is all Pine.
