CHICKEN COOPS – GENERAL INFORMATION
So you’re thinking about building a chicken coop but don’t want to spend a fortune on coop plans and building materials?
This was my thought when I built my own coop a few years ago. I’ve read that the average person spends over $300.00 to build their coop and I didn’t want to spend that much – so I scoured the internet to find free (or cheap) but well made chicken coop designs that I could either build myself or buy.
I’ve included the links to FREE coop designs on the right side of the page.
The links contain plans to big or small chicken coops, depending on your needs.
I’ve also added some ideas for cheap or free chicken coop supplies i.e. building
materials, chicken feeders, chicken water containers, chicken nest boxes, chicken roosts, and a few recommended books on how to care for chickens. I’ll be adding more information to each of these topics as time goes on. Feel free to explore a few of my posts as well and add some comments as well!
Pictured above is my chicken coop. It took me a long time to research and build, but it was great fun and has worked marvelously for our chickens over the years. After it was completed, I thought it may be helpful for others to have the same resources I had – but rather than google each individual resource, why not put them all in one convenient spot? So that has, and continues to be, the inspiration for my site – searching and adding as much information as possible to make it easier for you to build YOUR coop.
Click on the links to the right to find the plan that best suits your needs! And please leave a comment on any of the posts – I love hearing about others coop building experiences as well. The more information we share together, the better equipped we’ll be to build our chicken coops! Thanks for stopping by.
