When you build this project, it will be the feature of your back yard.

The snazzy chicken coop not only looks great but is very practical.
It can be made with either legs or wheels.

The size of it.
The floor area is 4ft x 8ft (1200 x2400mm) and the side-wall height is 4ft (1200mm). It is made to take standard plywood sizes for the floor and walls.
The overall length with the nesting boxes each end is 10ft (3050mm).
The inside height from floor to apex is 59″ (1500mm) and the outside overall height is 83″ (2110mm) when the coup is raised – either on wheels or with legs.

Design features – apart from looking snazzy:
This chicken coop will comfortably house at least eight chickens and generously allows for:
# 4 sq ft (0.36 sq m) of space per chicken.
# 6 nests shared between 8 chickens.
# 16″ (400mm)of perch length for each chicken. The perch rods run along the front of the nests and along the back wall.
# The floor will take “deep litter” which is at least a 3″ (75mm) covering of wood shavings or similar.
# Three panels along the back wall can easily be lifted out (all or any) to make for easy cleaning.
# Two windows for light.
# Ventilation under the eaves with mesh to make it predator proof.
# Easy opening and closing chicken hatchway door.
NOTE: There is no allowance for any feeder system, water container or supply
system. Although some people make their own, most people find it easier to
purchase a feeder system /water container.

Materials for the coop construction include:
# A variety of lumber sizes for the frame, posts, battens.
# 1/2″ (12mm) plywood for the floor and siding.
# 1×6 (25x150mm) boards for the roof – over underlay.
# An assortment of hardware including nails, hinges, door latches, door bolts, galvanized flashing , mesh for air vent openings, acrylic (plastic) glass, and glue.
