What do I need to do to prepare for my chicken coop?
It’s not necessary to build a base for your coop as the bottom lumber is pressure treated. However, it’s not a bad idea to do so, especially if you need to make the ground area level to build a base.
You also need to ensure there is proper drainage and the chicken coop won’t be placed in a low lying area. You don’t want to have a flooding issue with your chicken coop.
Also, check for tree clearance and any other objects that may be in the way of where you are placing your coop. This is especially true for turn-key or roll off delivery services.
Another thing to consider when you are figuring out where to place your chicken coop is to take into account the egg hutch when measuring, which makes the overall width 16.5 inches wider*. (*for a coop with a single egg hutch, egg hutches on both sides it will be 33 inches wider)
Lastly, please check on any town, city, or county ordinances where you live when it comes to your new chicken coop. Some places have restrictions on how many chickens you can have (which may play into which coop you get or need), some have set back requirements from either the house, the street, or both, and some places require permits for chicken coops.
Can I put together the chicken coop myself?
The instructions will be emailed to you in a downloadable PDF. You will need two people when placing the walls. The time it will take depends on your skills. For most DIYers it takes a weekend to build and a weekend to paint.
Even though you are anxious to assemble your coop, we recommend painting or staining it first, because it will be much easier than after it’s assembled.
