Category : Chicken Coop Plans, Chicken Coops

When building a chicken coop you have to make sure that your chickens will be safe from predators and climate extremes. You have to build a coop that is comfortable for your chickens and helps permit an easier clean-up; however you coop doesn’t have to look ugly.

If you are looking for fancy chicken coops for the poultry that you want to raise, your best bet is not to buy a ready-made one or build one yourself without proper guidance, unless you are a DIY enthusiast.  Instead, you might be better off looking for the best chicken coop plans that you can buy. This way, you are free to find one that suits your purpose, backyard, and standards. At the same time, you also have the freedom to customize the plan before you actually start building.

It is a good idea to use paint for your fancy chicken coop, you can try and match the paint of your house. This makes the coop look better and blends in with the surroundings. For a brick house, try to use an earthy shade for the coop. Add some bricks around the coop to make it look even better. The design of the coop should ideally match that of your house. Get creative when you build you coop, you will have to look at it every time you go into your backyard.

You might be surprise to know that some people build a backyard chicken coop even though they have no intention of raising chickens. Some people just like the way it looks for their backyard. By adding a chicken coop to your backyard you bring in an original farm look. There is nothing wrong with this, infact I know a few people who have done this, it was funny at first, but they were right it fits their backyard.

Aside from building fancy chicken coops, you also have to consider protection. I’m sure you do not want to wake up with some of your chicken missing, sick, or dead. Your fences should be high enough to prevent your chickens from flying outside or from other animals from climbing in. Chickens can be easily preyed upon so it is your responsibility to provide a safe environment for them to live comfortably in.

Contrary to what most people believe, you always don’t have to spend huge amount of money just to come up with some fancy chicken coops. It just takes creativity to create one that you’ve always dreamt about. Sometimes all it takes is the paint and how well you design it. You can match the paint of the chicken house with the color of your own house or at least paint it using a shade lighter or darker. This will enable the coop not to look weird in your surroundings.
