Category Archives: Chicken Coops
Isn’t this chicken coop amazing? It’s a little over the top for me (meaning I would love to have it but not going to put in the time and cost to build it) but I loved the story behind the little coop as much as I loved the actual chicken coop.

I’m always on the lookout for chicken coop plans so when I ran across this and thought is was a great easy coop for those that need detailed plans (like me). I got this from plan from Visual.ly here.

I’ll admit it…I have chicken coop envy. There, I’ve said it. I love looking at chicken coops and dreaming of the day I build new coops. I think I’m actually more envious of the cleanliness of the coops. For instance, the owner/builder of this coop has six chickens. I have around 50 which explains why hers is so much cleaner.
Here’s to those who also have chicken coop envy…..
