Chicken coop with flower box and glass window

Time for some serious chicken TV! Imagine spending summer evenings sitting on that bench looking at this pretty Garden Coop. Love the flower box, 4-pane glass window, and handy hooks next to the outboard nesting boxes that Neiley added. She sent us this nice note:

I purchased your coop plans and loved the process of building because the plans were so easy to follow. I have only done minor projects before, but even with limited skills I was able to make a coop to be proud of. No one can believe I made it myself. I did go my own way with the hen house.

Thanks to Neiley for sharing her coop photo with us. If you’d like to see more examples of our customers’ chicken coop builds as they’re posted, along with tips on building coops and keeping chickens in general, subscribe to Coop Thoughts. It’s free, ad-free, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
