Chicken Coop Photos

Just in case you need some inspiration,
here are some chicken coop photos...
there are about as many ways to build a chicken coop
as there are people building them...

So let these pictures give you some creative fodder
to mull around in your head as you
consider how you'd like to build your own coop.

Building a chicken coop should be fun! Let your creative side run wild! Although there are things a coop needs, there are no limits to the amount of creative ways you can construct those basic needs. Some people build a basic, functional coop while others go crazy and build chicken mansions. Regardless of which side you're on, or if you're somewhere in between, these chicken coop photos are sure to spark your imagination and give you ideas on both things you'd like to do and things you'd like NOT to do.

And after your coop is done, send us a photo! We'd love to show it off for you and celebrate in your success!

I loved this coop as well...they used a rabbit hutch (on left)
for the base of their coop. Their run uses an old bed
frame for it's foundations--they just built walls up from it.
