Garden Ark Chicken Coop from Plans

Amy in Newtown, Connecticut, sent in this photo of her backyard chicken tractor built using The Garden Ark coop plans. She modified her coop to be a little longer than the original design. Here’s what she wrote:

I had to share my Garden Ark! I had so much fun making it, and the plans were superb. I am certainly a novice, and I had no trouble.

I had a hard time finding the polycarb roofing, so I got fiberglass, and I extended the run ten inches for a bit more room for my four girls. I also added a ramp, which was super easy, a rope in the front for moving it around, and a bittersweet roost to give them an outdoor perching spot.

Thanks, Amy! If you’d like to build your own Garden Ark to house a small flock or grow your existing flock, check out our chicken coop plans here.
