Types of chicken coop designs
Now that you’ve decided to bring a flock to your backyard, it’s time to put your chicken coop plans into action and choose the best way to house your new feathered friends. Whether you’re looking to give your property a makeover with a large chicken coop, get to work on a DIY electric net fencing for your existing setup or purchase a backyard chicken coop, there are plenty of options on the market.
Some of the most common chicken coop setups include:
- Chicken tractor — A chicken tractor is a chicken coop design that allows your flock to roam around on the open grass while still keeping them enclosed using protective fencing. You can move your chicken tractor around your garden to sustainably vegetate the grass.
- Chicken hutch — A chicken hutch is a backyard chicken coop that can be used in an open and closed functionality. Open the hutch doors to allow your flock to roam around freely and when you’d like to secure them away at night, simply close the hutch doors to protect your chooks from predators.
- Electric chicken fence — A poultry electric fence is used to secure an open plan area where your chickens can roam the grass. You can use electric net fencing for chickens anywhere in the garden and move it around as you please.
