4x4 chicken coop for 6 chickens


Chicken coop overview


The 4’x4’ Nugget chicken house is securely built with pressure-treated lumber and reinforced at key structural points with metal L-shaped brackets. This is a cool chicken house because the door also doubles as the door ramp for the chickens and access into the house. Inside is a generous 16 sq. ft. of floor space with nesting boxes on both sides adding an additional 8 sq. ft. each. Outside are convenient access doors to the nesting boxes for easy cleaning and egg harvesting. The Nugget chicken house can accommodate up to six chickens, and it keeps them safe and secure at night. A gable roof with a metal roofing system adds exterior aesthetics and provides years of water protection. It can also be electrified either by installing a solar panel or electrical wire from a nearby breaker box. The Nugget is a functional structure that looks good no matter where it’s placed.

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 will my chicken house last?

A: All of our chicken houses are designed with weather-resistant materials, and they should last 20 to 30 years before major repairs or replacements may be needed.

5. How long does it take to build a chicken house?

A: This also depends on the size and complexity of the structure. In most cases, a smaller chicken house can take about 3 to 4 days to build, and the larger more complex structures, you should allow about 7 to 10 days to construct.
