Mrs. Kendawg and I scratch built this chicken coop from September to October of this year. We’ve been wanting to keep chickens for awhile and finally committed to doing it. We bought the plans online which turned out to have many errors in them so we just used them as a guide and made it our own, expanding the overall length, roof pitch and New England-ized it. We took over an existing flock of 9 birds and had eggs the first day the chickens were on the job. They seem to like their new coop.
