Our grandson built this chicken coop with help from us when he was 12.
It has a 16-foot run made of heavy wire panel to protect the hens from predators.
It was a fun project, and we have become quite fond of his three Rhode Island Reds.
We live on a farm in the piney woods of East Texas.

I assembled this chicken coop from a recycled shipping crate.
The windows are from a house that had its windows replaced.
I bought most of the hardware at a flea market.
The roof is made from a vinyl material.

My husband, Ron, built this coop for our four hens.
It has plywood siding, metal tubing framework, corrugated vinyl roofing, vinyl-clad window, Pergo floor for easy cleaning, 110-volt electric for lights, thermostatically controlled heat, and nesting boxes.
It also has a camera so I can see inside the coop, plus a remote control so I can turn the lights on or off from our kitchen.

This is a movable hen trailer my husband, Tony Carr, built four years ago. It is his own design, although he used Joel Salatin’s movable chicken trailers as inspiration.
We use our ATV to move it around our farm.

This building was in our minds for 10 years.
It is 10×12 feet with vinyl siding, has recycled shake shingles, and has a standing seam roof on the back side that we made.
The total cost was $1,100.

Combo Coop and Garden Shed
This is our chicken house. One half is for the chickens, and the other half is for starting seeds in the spring and curing vegetables in the fall.
