With simple directions, we built a small backyard farmhouse chicken coop. Complete with nesting boxes, roosting areas, multiple doors, some ladders, and beautiful design, our chickens will have the best coop on the block.
Walk-In Two Story Chicken Coop
For this project, I teamed up with our locally owned Orscheln Farm & Home store. They provided the coop, and I got the joy of working with my husband to put it together.
We picked the coop pieces up from the store, and it came in three boxes that an associate loaded for us in the back of the truck.
When we got to the farm, we opened each box and began to lay out all the pieces. This way we knew exactly what we had. We then found the instruction sheet that told us how many of each piece we should have. We then started checking off each piece to ensure that we had everything we needed.
Once we knew we had everything, we began building the coop. There are no written directions, but the instructions are in pictures with each piece being labeled and telling which screws to use.

Small Backyard Chicken Coop
After working for a few hours, my husband and I had the coop together. The hardest part was the roof but with two of us, we managed to get it on correctly without any gaps. Again, I found the instructions easy to follow and understand.
I am so pleased with how beautiful the coop looks now that it is finished. It’s a perfect fit here on our farm.
Reasons I Love This Backyard Chicken Coop
Nesting Boxes: This coop has three nesting boxes with access to gather the eggs from the outside. There is a latch on the outside of the nesting boxes that can be opened to gather the eggs and clean the area.
Roosting Area: The roosting area also has an access area that you can open to clean the area, as well as a pull out try to clean. The tray catches a lot of the chicken poo where they roost.
Doors: There is a door or some sort of access area on each side of the coop to let the chickens out or to make areas of the coop easier to clean.
I am so happy with the new home for chickens. In the next few days, I will be adding some landscaping around the coop by adding onto the two existing flower beds that are already on either side of the coop.
