Hen Coop Design

We are raising a new batch of chicks. Steven designed and is building a portable chicken coop. It will be able to be moved a short distance manually or hitched to the tractor for a long move across our property. Graph paper written plans for this portable coop coming. This photo gallery is all about using our hens to help keep weeds to a minimum.

UPDATE: We decided to make our portable chicken coop stationary. In the spring of 2017 when the hens were 1 year old we attached a 30 foot chicken run to the stationary coop. We felt like eight hens needed more room and exercise and the portable pen is built in a semi shaded area to give them some relief from the hot southern sun.
