Chicken Coop Plans

You have decided to buy some chickens and now you need to build a chicken coop in order to provide a safe, warm and comfortable environment so that your chickens will provide a steady supply of eggs for your kitchen.

If you are like me, you will want to build your own chicken coop. You have some spare time on the weekends and you are looking forward to getting the project started.

The first step in your endeavour to build a chicken coop is to begin searching for some chicken coop building plans. As my grandfather always said that you should never build anything without a set of plans. That was good advice because my grandfather was a builder.

A set of chicken coop plans will take you to the next step and that involves choosing what size you will require to house your chickens and what design will best suit your backyard situation. As one expert said, “The type of chicken coop you choose will depend on whether your chickens will live full-time in the chicken coop or have access to an outside run or larger portions of your backyard or whether the coop will be a movable coop that can be shifted regularly to fresh ground.” Of course, the number of chickens you decide to have will have a bearing on the design and size of your chicken coop.
