I recently developed an interest in raising chickens. My moveable coop is based on some design ideas I’ve seen, my own ideas and what materials I had on hand. It’s sized for a maximum of seven birds.

The moveable coop has an integral run, two roost bars and a raised platform for nesting boxes (made from old kitty-litter containers). Best of all: It can be easily moved with very little effort. 

My wife and I are enjoying watching our pullets grow, and they seem to really love their home.
