Win A Portable Chicken Coop

Reader Contribution by Troy Griepentrog

<p>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). </p>
<p>We have several coop and pen designs on the website (<a title=”Easy Backyard Chicken Coops” href=”https://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/easy-backyard-chicken-coops” target=”_self”>Easy Backyard Chicken Coops</a>, <a title=”Small Backyard Chicken Coop” href=”https://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/small-backyard-chicken-coop-gardeneggs” target=”_self”>Small Backyard Chicken Coop</a> and <a title=”An Easy and Affordable Poultry Pen” href=”https://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/poultry-pen” target=”_self”>An Easy and Affordable Poultry Pen</a>), but the ark from Handcrafted Coops has several design features I really like:</p>
<ul>
<li>Easy access to the nest box</li>
<li>A solid wall on one side of the grazing pen to protect birds from wind</li>
<li>Shade and shelter from rain in the grazing area</li>
<li>Raised roosting space (chickens don’t like to roost low)</li>
<li>Sturdy design to reduce predator risks</li>
</ul>
