13x5 chicken run for 10 chickens


Chicken coop overview


The 13’x5’ Muddy Cluckers chicken run is an elegant looking structure that won’t look out of place no matter the location. The enclosed and safety protected wire-meshed aviary offers 65 sq. ft. of roaming space. The coop is just as impressive with another 30 .sq. ft. of nesting and roosting space. An exterior nesting box is mounted on the front, and two convenient access doors with windows open to the coop, making egg collection and cleaning a snap. The Muddy Cluckers is a solid structure framed with pressure-treated 4”x4”s, and the gable roof provides strength and protection across the entire structure. The roofing application for this model calls for asphalt shingles, which can be purchased in a variety of styles and colors. This model is designed for 10 chickens, and it offers room for expansion by adding another chicken run to the structure. In the end, the Muddy Cluckers is a top-quality chicken run that’s worth the investment.

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.

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.
