It’s probably been at least a year since I did a video tour of our first chicken coop. Now we are building an additional, larger coop for my potential chicken business of selling eggs, chicks, and hatching eggs. As they say, chicken math is a real thing. 🙂 As you tour our chicken coop project this time, I hope you also find it helpful that I share some tips about saving money on costs. Building materials add up, and my husband likes to build things sturdy. We used a couple sources here and there to save money on purchases.
This chicken coop is 14 X 14 feet, and is still a work in progress. We may also build an addition onto it, if it works out. And FYI, zoning laws can come into play for even chicken coops in the country! These can vary by county to county in the same state. So if you intend to build one, check into your local regulations.
I hope you find the ideas and design of our coop inspiring. You can see we built a watering system like the one in our first coop. We based these off this PVC Chicken Waterer. We also did this similar feeding system. Our roosting bars are better set-up in the new coop. And as I mention in the video, the plan is to divide this coop in half for different breeding groups.
Enjoy! Let me know in the comments what you like or don’t like about the design.
