Designed by an architect!!! This Green Roof Chicken Coop is design to keep a low profile and maintain a small foot print. It will hold up to four free range chickens. It’s also perfect for a pair of chickens. Because of the square design, it is an easy chicken coop to expand or build an adjacent chicken coop run.
The low profile of this chicken coop makes it great for smaller suburban or even “in the city” back yards. The green roof has a few benefits. Obviously, it is intended to expand your garden and it certainly adds an nice aesthetic to the design. The green roof also provides insulation helping keep your chickens cooler in the summer time and warmer in the winter time. It even provides some sound insulation against precipitation which helps reduces stress on the chickens during rainshowers (chickens are frightened very easily!).
Size Flock: Four “Free Range” Chickens
Supplies: $300-500 depending on quality of materials
Plans include materials list, cut list and step-by-step fully illustrated instructions. It is possible to build this chicken coop with a hand saw and drill but, of course, power tools always make things a little easier!
