One of our Home Depot community members worked on a great chicken coop project this year. Here is the link to the article:  Ckicken Coop

 Howdy dagodeet,

 

There are many designs and ideas for building a chicken coop and luckily for you we've addressed this before. So I've pasted a bunch of past ideas for you.

 

Making a "chicken run" can be as simple or difficult as you would like. The Home Depot offers ready made one's like these:

This Kennel version is simple but needs warm section for nesting.

           Model #CL 61099

         Internet #202024365

                                      Model #HBK11-11799

                                       Internet #100663387

This ready made one is another simple design that can be ordered online.

 

Here is a link to a great one made by our very own "how to" experts.

I decided to come up with some designs that might spark your imagination. The main feature being a place for the chickens to nest and rest at night.

These are simple 2x4x12 wooden beams. The add on house is the "chicken condo".

This design shows the side door to be able to gather eggs.The sides could be made with plywood for enclosure.

 

These drawings are made to hopefully inspire you to make a chicken run that will give them room to run as well as provide protection from predators.

 

Happy building,
