If you’re looking for a great chicken coop design idea, you’re in luck. This DIY project will not only allow you to save money but it will also give you a great-looking chicken coop. There are a lot of designs and plans out there but I’m liking this A-frame one a lot.

You can change the design, add wheels to it so you can move it easily during cleaning.

While free-range chickens are very popular nowadays, having a chicken coop is still a good idea. It will keep your chickens safe from predators. It’s also a nice shelter that will shield them from extreme weather conditions.

There are two things that I loved about this A-frame chicken coop. First, it’s movable. Second, it’s self-cleaning. This makes life a whole lot easier, don’t you think?
