Building the ULTIMATE CHICKEN COOP for our Backyard Chickens! 🐔

It's a huge 20ft x 12ft CHICKEN COOP -- here's how we built it to spoil our chickens!
This year we decided to go BIG with our backyard chickens by building them a huge walk-in chicken coop. We have nesting boxes, a roosting tree, gorgeous plants, an egg basket hanger, and an automatic chicken door. We've been raising chickens for about 10 years, and have always had small coops, but this year we searched around for the best chicken coop ideas and came up with this DIY homemade design. We built it from scratch without a plan, and we love how it turned out. Join us in this video as we complete our chicken coop project and give you a chicken coop tour!
Each morning on our one acre farm in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, we start the day with milking goats, feeding pigs, and gathering eggs. We have a small plot of land, but boy, do we make the most of it. Each animal on our farm is taken care of holistically & organically. We let the mama goats raise their babies until they reach 10 weeks of age and are naturally weaned from nursing. We keep a small herd of 5-7 milking goats, mainly the Nigerian Dwarf breed, although we still have the queen of the herd, Luna, our Nubian goat. We use the fresh goat's milk to make cheese, butter, cream, and we use it in all sorts of baking & cooking. We love that we can walk into our backyard and gather food. It's the best feeling ever!
After the morning chores, we usually tend to the pond -- we're always adding new pond plants and fish to maintain the delicate ecosystem of our natural swimming pool. Our backyard farm is full of adventures, and we're so happy to share our farm vlog with you. Hopefully you can feel inspired to grow something of your own, or care for an animal with kindness like we strive to do. Thanks for watching!

    • Many thanks, I been tryin to find out about "best place for chicken coop" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about - Machaaldity Coop Blaster - (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my m8 got amazing success with it.

  • Although beautiful, absolutely not practical. Feeder is exposed to rain when it occurs and how will you effectively net the open area with the tree in the center of the coop to keep out predators?

  • Wow, lots of haters with these comments! They obviously care about the chickens and I am sure adjustments would be made if they found the coop to be unsafe or not working. People you do realize some chickens are wild and do not have coops? Great job looks good!

  • Its a chicken coop not a hidden garden. Chickens need all the space they can get and need. Not decorations. Roosting sticks, an egg nester, water, self feeding tubes, sand for them to take a sand bath, and pebbles so they it helps them digest food better.

  • Chickens and cedar shouldn’t be together. They put cedar mulch in there.

  • so many questions :) What chickens do you have? I'm in the desert of CA so the climate is similar. Where'd you get the automatic chicken door, or was that in a past video? are you planning do a deep litter method or clean it out every so often? Mind sharing a list of plants.

  • Just moved into the country side. The old owners left their chicken coop and about 3 chickens. My parents let me keep the coop and chickens, and now we have about 12 Hens and 1 rooster. And we have eggs all the time
