    Chicken Coop & Run Plans

    We are getting set to move to a new property and I'm wanting to construct a chicken coop and run to house 8-12 hens. I would love to get my hands on some free or nearly free plans for the construction. I've been looking around the interwebs and the plans that I've been seeing are a bit too spendy for my tastes. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    We have daytime free range pets
    This is what we have a Cataba NC style

    http://catawbacoops.com

    It's simple 2 story frame.
    Nesting boxes built into top floor
    scratch and play on bottom ( there is a trap door stair case )
    With Some coop wire on bottom
    Good for summer or winter here
    It has sliding removable panels on all four sides to clean or corral or release or contain the chickens

    In winter we close all panels to
    Keep them warm and in severe cold weather bank a layer of pine straw on the north cold side

    It's lightweight built in grab handles so it can easily be drug to different corners of the yard

    Make a chicken tractor.

    Isn't it strange that we don't require our policemen to attend law school?

    Can't go wrong w/ pallets & used roof tin.....the pallets are typically 40"x48"....so this project made a 4 foot x 12 foot coop. Another thing about pallets......use a sawzall w/ a metal blade to separate out wood.....you'll save yourself a lotta headache.

    Hey, they're chickens.....they don't care what their coop looks like.....all those fancy coops you see are designed to separate a sucker from his money !!

    a small storage shed, or even a section of a storage shed will do,

    when I built our new chicken house, I put in a used window I had that had three panes of glass, and in that opening I framed it so I could put in a "double door", so if the chickens ever went away it was storage shed ready, the shed has a concreted floor, and I have a feed room in the front of it, about a forth of it, I think it is about 12 x 16 if I remember correct. we started out with a old building we moved from my old father in laws farm, then we built the new one, and then added in between them so the chicken house is about, 12 wide and nearly 40 foot long now.

    I did buy nesting box but one could use 5 gallon buckets on there side bolted together, or as in our old building is a set of wood bins for nesting box,

    make it tall enough to walk in and so one can clean it out with out being on one knees or bending over,

    Be sure to bury the run fence about 3 ft down so fox and weasels cannot dig under it, or simply fold the fencing into a floor..........
