13 Fabulously Unique Chicken Coops

Sharing is caring!

The chicken coop craze doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. People are coming up with some pretty fantastic designs for their feathered gals – some fancy, expensive, and elaborate, and some rustic beauties made with repurposed materials.  

No matter how they’re made, they are pretty cool to look at. We decided to follow up on our previous adorable chicken coop post and go on a search for more, so here are 20 more ridiculously adorable chicken coops to feast your eyes on.


A nice mix of bright colors can turn an ordinary coop into a beautiful showpiece. This coop, seen on the Houzz forum, is built in a flower garden and accented with antiques.

Chicken coops don’t get much more rustic than this one, built into an old tree trunk, with aged wood door, roof, and windows.  This sits in the corner of an industrial park in New York.  Image via Flickr

This immaculate black and white “Many Feathers Cottage”, seen on Bonnie Jo Manion’s website, was built by Monte & Donna Partlow in Sequim, Washington.  It is complete with electrical wiring, insulation, vinyl flooring, and easy access to the picket fence enclosure.

The “Bayou Chicken House” at Easter Creek Farms is made entirely out of repurposed materials, so it cost almost nothing to build.  It took a little creativity to gather up all the materials, and the result is pretty inspiring.  See the building process at Backyard Chickens.

A geodesic dome aviary/chicken run is an awesome idea.  These are available on Etsy and would make a pretty cool DIY project.
