Chickens are fantastic and fun and a vital part of the homestead or ones preparations. From my experience however I’ve seen that most dogs will kill chickens just for the thrill of it. Not to mention a host of other predators that they need to be protected from.
This Chicken coop I created out of a an old weight rack and scrap plywood. Originally was going to be a chicken tractor but due to my brazilian mastiffs I was unable to go with that type of design. This type of setup would be easy to use for city chickens. This will also humanely and very effectively train any dogs in the area not to go near the coop. I found this to be a simple and easy way to protect my chicken flock.
