If you’ve ever thought about getting chickens so you can have fresh eggs every day (thus saving any money you spend on eggs), then you probably already know that you will need a chicken coop. The problem is, most prebuilt coops cost several hundred dollars, thus erasing any money you’ll save on eggs. Plus, not everyone has hundreds of dollars lying around.
Fortunately, if you can gather some scrap wood and are willing to do a little work, you can build your own chicken coop for less than $15. If that sounds too good to be true, watch this video by DIY Homestead Muddy Acres.
In it, she gives a tour of her 7 x 10-foot chicken coop. It has four nesting boxes, windows for light, roosting bars, and everything else chickens need. You can watch the video below.
