This little chicken house and run plan was originally designed as an addition to our chicken complex in order to accommodate our ever growing chicken population. The shed roof design in these chicken barn plans makes it easy to butt up against the existing chicken coop, constructing a passage from one to the other. The 3×5 enclosed area provides the chickens with a place to bed down, while the 5×7 open area allows them fresh air and contact with their natural surroundings. These chicken house and run plans were designed without a floor to allow the chickens to access the natural ground. The cottage style chicken coop in this plan can be moved around in the yard to give the chickens fresh ground to cover. In the colder months, lining the bottom of the coop with hay will keep your fowl friends comfortable.
All of our chicken coop kits, storage sheds, garden sheds, cottages and utility enclosures are built of the finest Vermont lumber and handcrafted for long life and durability. New England weather can really put a wood garden shed or cottage to the test, and Jamaica Cottage Shop’s products have proven to stand the test of time.
