Building a backyard chicken coop requires a little research and planning before getting started. Below you will find a some of the things to think about with respect to the requirements and basic design principles before you start building, or even if you are considering buying a ready-made coop. Either way, if you are getting chickens you absolutely need to make sure you have a coop in place first!

We built it in the spring of 2010 and it is still great 7 years later!
