Step 3:

When the frame is ready, you then have to put the sidings (plywood and/or chicken wire) and the roofing material of the chicken coop.
When increasing the size or dimensions of your chicken coop, make sure that you double the length of the wood supports and the size.
For example, from a 25mm x 25mm x 2m wood, increase it to 50mm x 50mm x 3m to ensure that the frame is strong and sturdy!
The windows and doors should be the last ones you should work on.
As soon as everything is finished, do a once-over inspection and plug all seams and joints with insulation material to prevent cold air from entering your flock's new house.

Look at those roosters struttin their stuff! I have two little cute chickens in my backyard and i want to build them a little home. Im new to the area and I need to find some <a href="http://www.royalbuilding.ca/products" rel="nofollow">building supplies in Toronto.</a> Anyone have some suggestions for me?
It wasn't until I found this site that I finally completed my chicken coop project. Learn how to build your own chicken coop and start raising chickens in your own backyard. Details here http://bit.ly/UpVkyz
Thanks for sharing this idea. I have been wanting to own chickens for years. However I was afraid that <a href="http://www.karlos.ca" rel="nofollow">building supplies in Newmarket</a> would be too costly to allow any profit. Thanks again.
Thanks for the help. My husband finally talked me into getting chickens and I have no clue what to expect. I guess we should start with step one and get<a href="http://www.royalbuilding.ca" rel="nofollow">building supplies in Toronto</a> and make a coop before we even get the chickens. Wish me luck!
We have all this excess wood from when we built our house and my grandma wants me to build her a chicken coupe. All I would want to use is just nails and a hammer. I know I need more <a href="http://www.royalbuilding.ca" rel="nofollow">building materials Toronto</a> than that. Never built a coupe before so not sure exactly what specific things to get for this project? This site helped a lot though with what style and way to build it. I'll feel more confident going into it, thanks!
Our chickens are just starting to grow out of the coop we've got for them, and we want to get even more. We are obviously going to have to build another one. Are the <a href="http://www.stillwellmaterialscorp.net" rel="nofollow">construction materials</a> for the coops usually very much? I remember the last one we built being pricey, but I don't really remember how much it was! Any help would be great!
And since when does a chicken coop need to be sanded? Its just going to be coated in crap in a week anyway. This instructable looks to be a giant, steaming pile of nonsense.
Ummmm, not really an instructable. <br />
