It is never too early to start thinking about designing a chicken coop. Perhaps you are thinking about getting chickens this spring, or simply improving an existing chicken coop.
There are lots of things to consider and this publication on backyard chicken coop design is a great place to start. It identifies what to do for protection, size, ventilation, roosting poles, nest boxes and basic coop maintenance. It lays out the basics of coop design and keeps it short and simple!
Then when you are ready, you can check out one of our incubators and start a little chicken family!
Having designed my own coop using this backyard chicken coop design guide, I couldn’t be happier. Start your planning!
