If you are looking to create a coop to raise a few backyard chickens, this DIY small flock chicken coop is the perfect answer. (See our original article on our coop : https://oldworldgardenfarms.com/2019/03/07/small-flock-chicken-coop/ )

This quaint, durable and elegant coop cane be built easily with a simple 2 x 4 frame - and finished in anything from shiplap, to metal, siding, or even wood shingles.

The finished coop measures 5′ long by 3′ wide, and is 50″ tall in the rear, with a sloping roof to 36" at the front. The design keeps chickens dry and safe, with plenty of doors for access and outside runs. The main space includes a full 48″ roosting bar, full-height screened-in window, and a large 28″ x 25″ door in front for easy access to clean.

The roosting boxes can be accessed with a simple pull up door on the right side of the coop to collect eggs from the outside.

Depending on the breeds raised, it has enough room for flocks up to 6 - 10 chickens.

The entire framework of the small flock chicken coop is built from just fifteen (15) 2 x 4 x 8’s, with the 2 x 4’s on end instead of using flat traditional framing. It saves both on space and material.

With an access door on the side, it is perfect to attach to a run. Or, with its incredibly sturdy frame, put it on wheels and have your very own mobile chicken tractor coop!

Perhaps best of all, beyond it’s extremely strong, durable and attractive look, it's also quite easy and economical to build! The simple 2 x 4 frame can be built quite inexpensively with basic 2 x 4's. And the coop can be finished with inexpensive wood siding as show, or even vinyl or metal siding as well.

The plans include a complete framing, metal roof and wood siding material list, tool list, and a cut list. Plans also include the instructions for finishing with a metal roof and wood siding - but can easily be adjusted to use with other coverings if desired.

This plan was great! I made a couple modifications on the door and vent placement just because of the way I needed it to face. This was my first wood project I did 100% by myself and I love the way it turned out! I painted it and added a green metal roof. I’ll try to add more pics if it lets me.

I loved this plan. There’s a few edits I made, but overall I figured it out. I’m very proud this is my first wood working project too. The chicks are very happy! Thank you!

This coop was super easy! This was my second coop that I’ve built using plans from Etsy. I am not an expert builder! I made quite a few cuts that were not exact, but I think it is sturdy and has character. The directions were simple and I built it myself in two days. It’s helpful to have a miter saw, jig saw, circular saw, and air nailer. This coop cost just over $230 in materials. I used left over shingles and purchased 2 boards of T1-11 siding instead of shiplap. I gave it a lift using 4x4s and changed a couple windows. The chicks love it!
