Publisher Comments:

Keeping chickens isn't just for farms The backyard chicken revolution has coops popping up in neighborhoods all over. Home-raised chickens provide a great source of superior, organic eggs that are as close as your backyard. Chickens also make good pets and provide free fertilizer--and lots of fun. Backyard Chickens Guide offers plans and photos for 16 custom coops built by real chicken owners, (including three portable designs known as tractors). Read their stories and learn from their experiences, then head out to the backyard to start your own flock.

This book is probably the best single source for easy to follow chicken coop plans. There are 16 backyard style coops highlighted in this book with color photos of the coop, the construction process, as well a detailed drawing and parts list. Each coop has a personal narrative from the coop building explaining the construction process.
