Build this Portable Chicken Coop (and my BONUS Hoop Coop) with plans from New Terra Farm
Imagine this: raising your own flock of tasty meat chickens or turkeys in a portable chicken coop you built for yourself!
Here's the portable chicken coop we use for raising meat birds on New Terra Farm. We like this design because it is sturdy but light-weight, and easily movable by one person.
We made the second design we built (see New New Terra Farm Portable Coop pictures below) even stronger and lighter, because we got smarter about framing and bracing the structure.
This one is lighter; all construction details are included in the book
A tarp roof provides shelter to the birds. The tarp is quite a bit larger
than the coop, and can be secured to provide shade and shelter when the
birds are outside the coop.

Solid design but a little heavier than my Hoop Coop

Here's why these are good designs for the new chicken grower
I admit I'm a better gardener than a carpenter; the construction methods I use are generally pretty simple.
No complicated joinery, or compound miter joints, or other stuff that adds cost and time to the construction.
Suzie moving the Coop to new ground
YES, Suzie actually does all the work; I just write the books ;-)
Since (as you may have read elsewhere on this site) I consider it my 'mission' to grow farmers as well as food, I often make valuable information I have learned available to new farmers and others considering a small farm life.
