This chicken coop looks great and won’t break the bank. It is 5′ wide x ‘5 deep, x 7′ tall, big enough for 12-16 chickens, has 4 nesting boxes, a 6’ long run, and arched front door. To top it all off, the board and batten trim really brings home the farmhouse charm.

Hi! What is the approximate cost of building materials?
Material cost is roughly $750!
Why does a chicken coop have two doors??
wait for it… wait….
Because if it had 4 doors, it’d be…. a chicken sedan!!
You could save a lot on the wood by finding an old shed or barn and offering to take down the barn for the owner, You’ll end up with more than you need but, it’s called barn wood and it sells for sometimes more than 2×4’s at the lumber yards.
A lot of people are making old sheds and there are people with trucks and large flatbed trailers that go around looking for barns in disrepair or haven’t been used in many years. Most of the farmers and ranchers know there’s value in the wood but, they just don’t want to be bothered to take it all away.
The coop is 5’x5′! If you have any other questions I’m happy to help!
Are you able to give me the dimensions of the coop minus the run? I have An 8×8 cement pad I’m working with and I want to make sure it fits before I purchase. This is adorable though!
