11 Incredible Chicken Coop Creations You’ll Want In Your Own Backyard

by Jess Catcher
Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve wanted to have my very own pet chicken. Obviously, like most animals, they come with a lot of responsibility — like searching through chicken coop designs to find the perfect fit for your own home.

Unfortunately, I don’t think my landlords would appreciate me installing any of the delightful options below in the middle of my New York City apartment. Still, I can’t help but look into all the adorable choices for my (hopeful) future home with a backyard full of chicks clucking away someday.

It’s probably a good thing I have plenty of time to make that decision, though, since there are so many great chicken coop designs to choose from — as you can see below!

Does your family have chickens? Let us know if you’d like to have any of these coops in your yard, or if you already have an even better one.

I would think they got confused while making this massive coop and used plans for a stable instead, but the sign makes it clear these chickens are just properly pampered for their gifts!
