For the DIY crowd, raising chickens is a cost-saving activity that's not only sustainable, it is fun too! But providing the proper environment for backyard chickens is a critical component of this eco-friendly hobby, and it takes careful thought and consideration.

Farmer and author Samantha Johnson takes a practical approach when it comes to building environments for her chickens. "Chickens are generally easy to care for and inexpensive to keep," she says. "The required infrastructure for a flock of chickens—housing, fencing, and feeding/watering equipment—is minimal and well within the reach of a DIYer who would like the satisfaction of building these items for him- or herself."
Johnson has laid the essential groundwork for building cost-saving projects for chickens. Her new book, which she partnered on with her brother Daniel Johnson, is called Chicken DIY: 20 Fun-to-Make Projects for Happy and Healthy Chickens (CompanionHouse Books, January 2018). In Chicken DIY, aspiring chicken farmers will find creative plans and easy-to-follow construction tips for making a safe and healthy environment for their fine-feathered friends.
Some of the projects include:
