Build a Movable Chicken Coop

Designed for super-convenient cleanup, this customizable, portable chicken coop comfortably houses up to 15 birds.

Step 27
27. Create the poop tray tracks. I’ve never seen a poop tray built into any other coop, but it’s a really practical idea that saves time during clean-out. The roosts are above a pair of removable trays, so the droppings are consolidated in one place. The trays slide in a simple set of L-shaped tracks (P) made on the table saw. Two cuts on adjacent faces of a 2-by-4 removed the waste material, and I was done in just a few minutes. Note that this operation will require you to change the blade height and fence position between cuts. The exact location and size of the cutout isn’t critical.
