Today’s chicken coop and photos are just breathtaking! This chicken coop tour was sent in from Mindy K and Rehoboth Farm in Worthington Pennsylvania (I love hearing from my East Coast readers!) Not only does she have one of the best looking chicken coops I’ve seen but Mindy is also an incredible photographer!
Did you build it yourself? My wonderful husband designed and built the coop for me, using my wish list. I also pounded a LOT of nails!
How much did it cost to build? Waaaaay more than we anticipated, lol. Famous last words, “I can build it cheaper.”
What features are your favorite? The entry way, where I store feed and supplies.
How many chickens do you have? 24 hens and one rooster
Do you have recommendations for new chicken owners? Talk to other chicken keepers and ask “What would you have done differently from when you built your coop?” We totally messed up on the pop door–we made it level with the floor, not thinking that we were going to use deep litter. (The pop door is a little door for chickens to go through. Generally between the hen house and run.)
How many eggs do you get a day? Average 16 (anywhere from 11 to 21)
Mindy adds, “I originally wanted chickens for the healthy eggs (I feed organic feed, and they are pastured birds), but did not realize how totally charming they are!”
The entrance to the coop has lighting, for early morning (or late night) tasks.

What a way to end the day! A golden sunset and bucket full of eggs.
I’m not sure which is more beautiful, the eggs or the sunset! 🙂

This post is part of my weekly chicken coop tour, featuring a different reader-submitted chicken coop every Saturday morning. Mindy will get a $10 Amazon gift card for having her chicken coop featured on the site.
Do you have a chicken coop? If so, send me a photo! If I feature your coop you’ll get a $10 Amazon.com gift card! Here are all the details for sending in your coop.
I’d love it if you’d follow my chicken coop board over on Pinterest! I hope to add a bunch more photos and resources to it this year.
