Once your chickens have grown and thrived in the brooder it is time for them to go out to their permanent home. By this point they have gotten too big for the brooder box and luckily they can tolerate the outside temperatures if fully feathered. A chicken coop can be just about anything. Most people use a small building. Some build or purchase a small coop, while others use a barn or portion of a barn. I have even seen an old junked car turned into a chicken coop. There are many options and no one right answer, but there are some necessary features to be included in a chicken coop.
