Chicken house tour – diy coop, four chickens, cost about $400 (tongue and groove cedar plank!)

Thanks for visiting the Queen Bee Coop-on Tour. Every single day for the following couple days approximately I’ll be having a different chicken house! They were all submitted by Queen Bee readers. Here’s our second coop, submitted by Angie in Vancouver, Washington!

Cost: About $400. We wound up spending a bit more they desired to simply because they live so near to their neighbors. The neighbors now refer to it as the “Hilton Henhouse”!

Who built? We built our very own coop! We used lots of ideas and photographs from for inspiration.

Favorite features: My personal favorite features would be the tongue and groove cedar plank siding my hubby found cheap, we’ve two guillotine style doorways to allow the chickens in and from the henhouse and from the coop into the run. My personal favorite feature may be the poop hammock I made.  I discovered this within my research and WOW exactly what a difference it’s produced in cleaning.  I never need to get poop within the henhouse.  Just remove it and shake it in to the compost pile.  It has saved me money and time.  (See picture w/ LuLu modeling for you personally)
