Build an outdoor child’s playhouse with basic building materials and create a space for your children that they can call their very own.
Capture the playhouse that lives in your child’s imagination and make it a reality. With a little bit of planning, and the proper tools, you can design, build, and decorate a playhouse that will stand up to the wear and tear that your kids will inflict upon it, as well as the weather. Using a few basic building techniques, your child’s playhouse can be fun, functional, and structurally sound.
All the rage! We have cedar to help you build more than a simple cage.
The general rule is 4 square feet of inside space and 10 square feet of run space per standard sized bird, half that for bantams. I’ve seen some people give their birds 2 square feet per bird inside the coop, but those birds are almost never in the coop. Your coop and run sound about right for 4 hens, though if it snows a lot in your area (I don’t know what Utah is like) you may want to build bigger as the hens will be stuck inside a lot. The general rule for nest boxes is 1 for every 3-4 hens in the coop and for roosts 8-12 inches per standard bird and half that for bantams. You already got 8 chicks so if you feel your coop isn’t big enough, make a second (you can connect them through the run) or add on to your current one.
enjoy your chicken adventure
