DIY Portable A-Frame Chicken Coop

One of the things that you’ll almost always find on every homestead are chickens. We have about a dozen now, but when we first started we only had three. We only needed a small but functional coop, so we built this diy a frame portable chicken coop.

The coop is a very basic one, howver affordable and is still stored in a corner in the backyard. Total cost of the project was slightly more than $100. It took us one afternoon to have this set up and ready for our chickens.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 2x4s lumber
  • plywood sheet
  • T-Strap hinges
  • chicken wire
  • wood screws
  • staples
  • scrap plywood
  • measuring tape
  • square
  • pencil
  • safety glasses
  • hearing protection
  • drill
  • circular saw
  • staple gun
  • countersink drill bit
  • 1×2 plywood (optional)

The first step for this beginner friendly diy project is to make your cuts for the walls using your miter or circular saw. It is important that you maintain the 60 degree angle. The base supports go on next, then the doors before finishing it off with chicken wire on the outside.

If you follow these exact plans, this coop can house up to four chickens. I love that is has both covered space and run space, which is also protected from the rain. However, nothing beats the coolest feature of this coop, the folding open nesting box. It’s ingenius! 🙂
