I thought i would try my hand at building a chicken coop this week, and the following photos show what i ended up building.
It measures approximately four feet by three feet, not including the nest box on the back. I used mainly wood from old pallets to build the frame for the hen house, and then finished it off with feather board which cost me around £30. The roof has been covered with felt, some of the felt was left over from the rabbit hutch i made and a friend gave me an off cut he had lying around.
I made a couple of free standing perches for the inside, making it easier to clean out the coop when needed.
