24x8 walk in chicken coop

 

Chicken coop overview

 

The 24’x8’ Big Bird Walk-In Chicken Coop provides 192 sq. ft. of space for as many as 50 chickens to roam and rest. This is a sizable structure built on a concrete and mortared-brick footing. The framework utilizes pressure-treated lumber that outperforms and outlasts standard kiln-dried lumber. The Big Bird walk-in coop is based on a Scandinavian design that offers a different architectural design, and it has two large doors for easy access. The gable style roof is covered with 23-gauge metal sheets that are securely held in place with neoprene washers and sheet metal screws. This structure can be built in any weather environment, and the roof is strong enough to support solar panels for lighting and heating the coop. There’s also plenty of room inside for nesting boxes and room to maneuver. The Big Bird is a professional model, and it benefits those with a larger flock of chickens.

FAQs & Answers

 

1. Do I need a permit to build a chicken coop?

A: In most cases, local regulations stipulate buildings that are over 100sqft require a permit, chicken coops included. If your coop is under a 100sqft, chances are you don’t need one.

2. Can I legally have chickens in my backyard?

A: Most bylaws and regulations stipulate that where chickens are allowed, a required distance between your neighbor’s property line and the coop needs to be enacted.  

3. How much does it cost to build a chicken coop?

A: This depends on the type, style, and size of the chicken coop. For smaller coops 100sqft and under, you can expect to pay between $500 and $1000, and for larger coops 200sqft and more, you can expect to pay between $1500 to $4000.  

4. Can I let my chickens out of the walk-in aviary?

A: There are advantages and disadvantages to free-roaming chickens. The advantage is allowing more space for your chickens to explore, and the downside is they leave a lot of chicken poop, dig holes, and they can cause havoc in flowerbeds and gardens. 

5. Can my chickens stay out in the aviary overnight?

A: If you want to encourage your chickens to lay eggs in the nesting boxes, it’s a good idea to keep them inside the coop and nesting box area at night because some chickens will try to lay eggs outside of the coop. Most walk-in chicken coops are designed with adequate space inside of the coop for the number of chickens it was designed for.
