Keeping a flock of chickens is something that is hugely popular again as more and more people realize the benefits of growing/raising their own food. Chickens are pretty simple to maintain once their initial setup is complete. A chicken coop makes a great DIY project and can be made as simple or elaborate as you like.
Whether you’ll be keeping a large flock or just a few hens, why not have some fun with the coop design? A beautiful coop can be built from the ground up with all new materials or made from repurposed materials and buildings.
