Our Chicken Coop is Here!

You guys!! My chicken coop dreams have finally come true. Our coop was delivered a few days ago and it honestly felt like Christmas morning–I was SO excited. And when I saw it for the first time I could’t help but squeal like a little kid. It’s even better than what I envisioned and I’m completely smitten with it! And I have to give a huge shoutout to The Shed Yard, which is where we got the coop. They’re an amazing company here in Colorado and they were so awesome to work with on this project. We designed every detail of the coop together and they nailed it!!

Isn’t this the cutest chicken coop you’ve ever seen?! I just can’t get over it. It’s exactly what I wanted–white with black shutters. And I love the board and batten detail. It’s absolutely perfect! Those chickens are going to be living in such a beautiful little home.

This coop is actually a really nice size–it’s 8 feet by 12 feet, so we should have plenty of room for about 20-35 chickens. I told the folks at The Shed Yard that I wanted a big coop and they definitely made that happen! Now I can’t wait for spring so we can get chicks! It’s going to be so much fun. And as corny as it sounds, this really feels like a dream come true. We moved to this house for the 10+ acres and the opportunity to give our kids a small town, country lifestyle. I am so excited to make this our own little farm!

Thanks so much for dropping by the blog today. I hope you have the best weekend! xoxo

Sarah here! Nice to meet you. I’m a mama to three, wife to my high school sweetheart and accidental blogger. We recently moved to our little homestead on ten acres and we're loving the small town life in Colorado. I hope this space can inspire you to create a home you love and enjoy the simple moments the most.

    Awesome! I didn’t know there are designer chicken coops! Here in Albuquerque NM, they are generally homemade. Your chickens are very lucky! Happy holidays!

      Cool coop. I would love to be able to have you check out my 1st coop build. All recycled material with exception of part of the framing. It houses 5 hens and has it’s own enclosure safe guarding them from stray coyote and cats! 6′ chain link …railroad ties…and netting across the top to keep crows and chicken hawks out! … Sara

    Hello! I just ordered an 8’ x 10’ Tuff Shed that I’m going to make into a chicken coop. What do the roosts look like in your new coop? Any photos? I’m just not sure how they should look and where they should go. Thanks.

    That is the cutest coop ever. We had chickens when our kids were little and it was the best thing ever. Fresh eggs are unbeatable and the kids loved gathering them. Hens are surprisingly loyal and followed my little ones around the yard. Great memories are in store for you! 🙂

    That is an amazing chicken coop! I do want to let you know that you don’t have to wait till spring to get chicks if you have a brooder. I am still hatching out Rhode Island Reds, White Leghorns, and Lavender Ameraucanas. If you buy them now in the spring they’ll be laying.

    Plan to run an electric wire around the bottom piece of coop fence to keep critters OUT, FYI

    I know just how you feel. I had my brother-in-law build an enclosed building between two coops and my chickens just love it and I too am excited. It was completed the day before the big snow storm came.

    I don’t recommed, nor do chickens need, a chicken coop higher than a kitchen cabinet. A pierced ceiling would be fully topped by a mini greenhouse, whose seedlings would be easily reachable, would at a certain point would be fed to the chickens, and who would benefit from the carbon dioxide drifting up from the chicken’s breath causing the plants to grow 15- 20% faster. A program for months either side of summer.

    Yup! That shore is a mighty fine chicken coop! Mighty fine. I’m ‘spectin’ the inside be lookin’ just as fine. Problem is, though, that the inside ain’t gonna look nuthin’ like it looks like right now in a few weeks. Fact is them purty little chickens gonna crap all over everything in that there little chicken coop. The inside ain’t never gonna like like it looks like right now EVER again. We got 97 chickens and believe me when I say we wouldn’t trade them fer nuthin’! They’re just good therapy. Ya’ll have fun!

    Hi Sarah, that’s the most beautiful chicken coop I’ve ever seen!!! Question….I’m just curious as I don’t live in a city that snows, where do the chickens go when there’s heavy snow? Would they just stay in the coop the whole time?

      Yes they will! We will get heat lamps to help keep it warm for them!

    Hi! Im wondering if you could email me aome details about your coop. I live in West Virginia – too much expensive for freight costs to ship an 8×12’ coop! But I love yours andcwss hoping if I had good inside photos, i could find someone to build something similar… is it heated? Does it have insulation? Are there any special features above and beyond pre-fab coops one can buy at those “barn, shed and outdoor structures” businesses one might see in their community? (They’re overpriced anyway!) Might you be willing and able to take a binch of photos for me and email them or even text them if that’s easier? Thanks so much for your consideration of my request!
