|Don't want to spend bucks on a chicken coop and have decent carpentry skills? Build your own! These building plans complete with diagrams and photo will help you build the coop pictured here. The "Ready Coop" is ready to go anywhere! It's easy to disassemble, clean, move and reassemble. The stackable panels can fit in the bed of a half ton pick up truck.
The other main benefit of the Ready Coop is that it's ideal for cold climates. The insulated, multi-level roosting area, with an insulated window and vent plugs (not shown) keep chickens safe from frostbite in temperatures well below zero degrees Fahrenheit. The front of the coop is one large door for wonderful access, but if you just want to collect eggs or access feed and water (and don't want to freeze your chickens out!), there are small doors on the back.
The nest box is removable, and the design accommodates either one or two, depending on your needs, or a ground nest for brooder! Attached is a protected, indoor/outdoor ground ranging area. Solid design keeps predators away.
Create your own outdoor run area to suit!
Coop stands 6' high, the low "ground range" area is 4' high, and the total ground area covered is 4' x 8'
Plan on $700 - $800 for all new materials, depending on your location.
