If you want a few hens for fresh eggs, but haven’t had the time (or money) to build a coop or chicken tractor, here’s your chance to win a free coop! The Handcrafted Coops portable chicken coop is an ark-style coop with space for three hens (or five bantams).

We have several coop and pen designs on the website (Easy Backyard Chicken Coops, Small Backyard Chicken Coop and An Easy and Affordable Poultry Pen), but the ark from Handcrafted Coops has several design features I really like:

  • Easy access to the nest box
  • A solid wall on one side of the grazing pen to protect birds from wind
  • Shade and shelter from rain in the grazing area
  • Raised roosting space (chickens don’t like to roost low)
  • Sturdy design to reduce predator risks

Check out the video below, then go to to enter.

We just love our Hens, we keep Welsummers a very gentle easy going hen that lays a large dark brown with black specks in shell color...We also keep Americanas that lay a medium to large light blue egg with verious colors from pink to olive green shell color...said to lower in colestrol and wonderful eggs for kids. We feed our hens purina layer with omega 3... our customers love our free range eggs.

I would love a safe coop for my chickens. We lost some chickens to racoons.

I would be the happiest girl in Georgia, if I won the chicken coop. I don't have any chickens,but I want 3or 4 to enjoy. The only reason I don't is I don't know how to build a coop and chickens need a good place to live. Thank you for the chance to win. Sara Moon
