A VERY Pretty Chicken Coop

1 Sep

People often ask me how elaborate a chicken coop needs to be.  My response is, make it simple.   If you’ve been thinking about getting a few backyard chickens get a few (not 50).  Although my chickens have lots of space they don’t ‘need’ it.  If they do they will let you know- they can be stressed out little creatures!

Here is a great example of the simple type of chicken coop I envision for first time backyard chicken enthusiasts.  I love this website because it shows a chicken coop that is simple to build and yet enough space for 3-4 chickens.   A class from Oakland International High School in California worked with Just Fine Design to build this lovely little coop.

Here is the webpage that has a bunch more photos and information on this chicken coop:
