Chicken Coop Plans

Chicken Coop DIY Plans

1. The parts you’ll need

Before you start building your project, make sure you get the following parts from your local merchants or online:

  • Nest boxes
  • Roofing panel
  • Exterior surfaces
  • Coop floor
  • Chicken wire

*Instead of buying surfaces, you may have some in your home that are no longer in use and could be given a second life: It’s better for the environment, and also a great way to save money!
