Default Home made chicken coop

We are in the process of making a chicken coop from scrap materials picked up from family and left over decking. We had plywood, pallets and deckboards. We'll keep you posted our progress.

hi lissy,

Well done on making the chicken coup. It looks really well. Just wondering if u live in the city or country? I live in the country but in a small housing estate. Often thought it would be nice to have a few hens. Not sure how noisy it would be?

I live in quite a biggish housing estate and some of my Neighbours have chickens & hens and you'd never know they had them.
