About the Chicken Coop

The coop was designed and built by Mr. Aaron from wood that was donated by the Wiencek family. It has two floors and a double nest box. Everything in it is removable for easy cleaning.

  1. Nice job, gives me good ideas for my mini-coop. Have you thought about adding a window? Could buy some plexiglass (18″x8″), cut a hole in the side plywood, predrill holes on the plexiglass and then caulk around it. Hens will appreciate it and you can peep inside without opening the whole thing up!

    Holy shit that’s clever!!! What are the dimensions of the box? Seems to me the lattice walkway is made of plastic…wouldn’t there be a chance of them melting under the heat of the lamp?

  4. very slick…..

    If you live in the area of Portland, OR or Seattle WA, why not just order one from us?

    How many chickens does this coop hold?

  21. perfect!!!!!!!!!!! not to big and not to small and not to fancy!!!

  22. perfect!!!!!!!not to big and not to small and not to fancy!!!!!!!!nice work!!!

  23. The flaws I see with this coop is, the Roost should be above the egg boxes or else you may find them roosting in the next boxes and pooping in them (they poop a lot when perched) , I had this problem last winter with my old coop.

  24. Thanks your film, because it was very interesting and practicle.

  25. If you don’t fasten those inside parts somehow, the chickens will kick them out of place, and the problem with a run with low height is, what if you have to retrieve a sick or dead chicken?
