If you’re looking for chicken house building plans, then this article is going to clue you in on a few things you should know. Specifically, we’re going to talk about planning before you buy anything, whether you should build your own or buy a prebuilt one, and where you can find chicken coop plans. By the time you have finished reading this article, you’ll be ready for the next step in keeping your own chickens.

Let’s start by talking about the things you need to consider before you purchase a house for your chickens. Firstly, how many chickens do you want to keep? You will get a sizeable amount of eggs from just 3-5 chickens.

Also, where are you going to put the chicken house? If you’re keeping just a few chickens, the backyard is fine – but you will need to make sure the house is in the shade during the summer, and well protected against predators.

Another thing to consider is how much space do you have available? Each chicken will need at least 1sq foot of space – but the more space you can give them, the better.

Next, lets talking about buying a prebuilt chicken coop vs building your own. Buying a ready-made one is the “easiest” solution, but it will cost you several hundred dollars potentially. Most people don’t realize that it’s actually very simple to build your own, so this is the preferred choice.

Also, why not make a weekend project of it with the family? This can be very fun and rewarding for all involved.

Finally, where can you get step by step plans for building a chicken house? Your best bet is to use the internet. You will come across a few free designs, and the occasional “paid-for” design. The free ones can be useful to get ideas from, but the material lists are often incomplete or unclear – and you don’t want to start building only to find you can’t easily obtain all of the materials.

The “paid-for” designs tend to be a little more thought out, and use materials available from any DIY store.
