Default DIY chicken coop

Well, my daughter and I are finally getting our way, and inheriting some laying hens. My wife hasn’t been on board with the idea until recently, so I let her have some input on the coop & run. Friend of my wife’s is relocating into town to a townhome and no yard, and she wants us to have her 4 hens, so it was time for me to get to work. The wife looked on Pinterest at coop designs, and came up with this one:


I’m using the base design, but tweaking a few things along the way. Ours will be a bit taller, tall enough for me to walk inside & clean it out. I got the base framed and decked today, framing walls will start sometime this week. Thankfully I had several sheets of plywood and 2x6’s left over from a project, so this build should be easy on the pocket book, considering lumber prices these days.

I would plan it bigger than you think you're gonna need. Chickens are like chips and salsa, it's hard to stop once you get started lol Look forward to seeing how it turns out

Best tip is to put a poop box (plastic bin with wood chips) under the roost bar. Saves a lot of clean up time.

Thanks for the input. Showed horses and messed with cows in my younger years, but the only thing I know about chickens is how to fry em & how to shove a beer can up their butt & smoke em. Advice or recommendations always welcome.

Lmao those are two of the best things to know about them for sure! We have learned a lot by trial and error. We were only gonna have 5 laying hens. We have closer to 35 or 40 now including my daughter's flock of silkies she is wanting to breed and sell chick's from.

Looks good. We have 3 laying chickens and 3 chicks we are about to let join the others. I am pretty new to the chicken business. Ours run the backyard. The thing I learned quickly was they poop everywhere. Today I am getting a motion sprinkler from Amazon to hopefully keep them off the patio.

Ours will have limited time to roam our acre & 1/2...I have a GSP that will devour them the first chance she gets.

The coop from Pinterest is pretty much what I built. Use a bike tire tube as your water proofer for the nesting box lid, installed under the 1x4 and under the hinges. My coop has 2’ legs with the bottom fenced in for shade. I think you should fence yours in even with it lower than mine. A plexiglass window on the big door is handy to look in rather than opening the door. RentACoop chicken water cups and their Port Feeders installed on 5 gallon buckets work pretty good. I did a lean to roof with metal roofing on the coop and half of the fenced in run.

That dang pintrest has generated more unwanted projects for me than I can count!

I went a little overboard on our coop for the amount of chickens that we have. But if we wanted to, we could probably run about 30 chickens. LOL

Some ideas for you.....
Self watering system using a lick tub.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Sun shade over the run. This actually deflect allot of rain too. I really like it.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I am fixing to build a self feeder using a lick tub, and some 3" pvc 90's. The one I have now is a bad design, and makes a mess.

Yes sir......we can slide ours in and out and keep shavings in it. Sure makes it easier to clean up. These things are some crapping machines.

It will definitely be fully fenced with hardware cloth. I’m putting 4x6 skids on the bottom of it so that I can move it around every so often. I’m planning on a metal roof on the coop, and a full metal roof over the run as well.

Taking advantage of the day off & free labor, while my dad is in town. Knocking out the framing, then going to get windows, siding, & trim for tomorrow.

Got the roof insulated & decked, got the windows in, and got the nesting box dividers cut. Hard to be productive with my 2 & 4 year old underfoot and “helping”, but it’s coming along. Should get the siding & metal roof on tonight. I’ll be cutting a 1 1/2“ slot out of the insulation on either side of the ridge board, to accommodate a ridge vent.

add a fan to keep down the heat in the summer.
Hens are easy.
Layena Chicken Pellets.
https://roostandroot.com/product/ez-...-chicken-loft/
these are the feeders that we use. they are awesome. Its a 4x4 pvc tube with a plastic plate at the bottom that allows the feed to funnel in.

https://roostandroot.com/product/bac...els-extension/
look in the picture the round tube is the water system. its PVC pipe to a t to a down tube that has a nipple on the end. We have 11 birds now and we use 2 feeders and 2 waters. it last us about a week

You can buy hens from all over. Hens lay eggs about every 22 hours.
Fresh eggs... once you go fresh you will never eat store bought eggs again.

You can leave the eggs out for up to a month if you do not wash them. Once you wash them you have to put them in the fridge.

When in doubt about an egg. Float test. put it in the sink fill the sink with water. If if floats its bad.

keep them in the coop or they will crap all over your patio.
they will eat all the grass in your back yard.

dry meal worms from amazon are a great treat.
stick a golf ball in the laying area.

They’ll have a 6’Wx6’Hx12’L run to use during the day. We’ll let them in the yard on occasion, but only when my bird dog is in the house. We’re getting 4 mature hens (pets) from some friends that are downsizing and moving to a condo in town. They’re giving us their feeders, waterers, solar door, etc. from their coop/shed.

Very astute observation on your part. My plan from the beginning has been to make it a deer blind if the chickens don’t work out. Plus I’ll “have to” build another blind with the “leftover” material.

Looking really nice! I need to upgrade the coop, originally built in when I only had 10 total. Now I have 7 laying hens, 1 rooster, 22-3 week old chicks we hatched and 4-2 week old silkie chicks I bought for my daughter.

Still have one piece of trim to add, along with a wall vent, but she’s 99% complete. The run is next.

Thanks. Yeah, the hens we’re getting are already used to the automatic door, so it was a must. I’m going to be adding a little awning above the auto door where that piece of trim is, just to keep rain from getting in through the auto door.
