UPDATE: Hello dear readers!!! We are so glad you love our chicken coop so much. We did not originally intend to share plans/dimensions/directions when we made this post which is why they’re not included here. We love that you love our coop and love that it has been shared multiple times, sadly it has been shared by sites saying we had all the directions for building the coop which we do not. Please consider this an inspiration post, something to look at to give you an idea of what you can create yourself.
So WAY back in March…Josh and I had a talk with the boys and we decided as a family that we would get some chickens. We were all pretty excited about this new adventure and couldn’t wait to get started! At the beginning of April we headed over to IFA to figure out what we would need and how many chickens we wanted. They had a very helpful employee who told us everything we would need to know about taking care of our chickens. Also, lucky for us we had a friend available to answer any questions we might have!
Another angle. After the chicken coop itself was completed. Josh used 2 x 2’s and 2 x 3’s to build the frame for the yard and another, outdoor roosting bar. We also added in the ramp for the chickens to get into the coop. I’m super proud of Josh for all of his hard work and I’m really excited for how amazing it turned out!! Our total cost for the entire coop…every last nail, hinge, can of paint, everything was about $290.00. And the best part is the chicken coop and run are significantly bigger than the one at IFA. 🙂 So HUGE round of applause for Josh and the chicken coop!
