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!

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
