6x12 chicken run


Chicken coop overview


The 6’x12’ Henny Penny Chicken Run provides 36 sq. ft. of roosting space and 36 sq. ft. for a chicken run. This is a stationary structure as it’s built on a solid concrete footing. The high-quality wire mesh provides a safe haven for chickens as well as adequate ventilation inside the aviary, which cuts down on odors and produces a healthier environment. This chicken run has a capacity for up to 12 chickens. The Henny Penny chicken run is constructed with materials that stand the test of time; therefore, eliminating the need for costly repairs or replacements. A metal roofing system with ridge cap provides decades of protection for the structure and chickens. The coop can be modified with a variety of colors to match existing barns or architecture. The best feature of the Henny Penny can be seen in the design of a durable and inexpensive chicken run that’s built on quality.

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. How long can my chicken live in a chicken run?

A: The life expectancy for most standard chicken breeds is about 8 to 15-years inside a spacious chicken run. Some chickens have been known to live about 20 years inside of a chicken run. 

5. Can I use my chicken run in the winter?

A: You can use your chicken run in the winter, but it’s important to install approved insulation and heat lamps for the chickens and to keep their water supply from freezing.
