6x10 walk in chicken coop


Chicken coop overview


The Dixie Walk-In Chicken Coop is a great structure that will look good on any farm or in any backyard. It offers 60 sq. ft. of enclosed space that can accommodate 10 chickens without them being restricted to a small space. The aviary’s wire mesh keeps the birds safely inside and predators out. The walk-in style provides plenty of room to maneuver, feed, collect eggs and clean the coop. The construction materials are high-quality and offer years of durability and low-maintenance. The Dixie is perfect for the small farmer or the average homeowner who wants fresh eggs. The nesting boxes on both sides are protected from the elements and elevated at the ideal height. Open space in the center of the coop and under the nesting boxes allow the birds to have plenty of freedom to roam and play. The Dixie can be painted or stained to match existing barns, houses or landscapes.

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.
