Chickens Under My Porch

I want chickens under my front porch! This is what we will be working with!

Has anyone else made a coop out of an existing front porch? Does anyone have any links to references that they have stumbled across that might help me visualize the finished product?? I have considered the noise factor for the chickens, by the way, and I don't think it will be a problem since we rarely have front door traffic.


  1. What a cool idea! I have no suggestions for you, but I can't wait to see what you come up with. fun!

  2. I love it! Ill help if I can have eggs..... :)

  3. Ooh chickens! How exciting! I've been wanting to get chickens myself, for a while now. I would just check to see, if you haven't already that is, if where you live allows you to keep the chickens under your porch. I know that where I live the chicken coop has to be at least ten feet away from the house. I'm excited to read more about this though...

  4. Yes! Yes! Yes! (I don't know how you are going to do it but good plan!)

  5. I have no experience with Chickens, but I think that might be the best idea ever! :)


  6. Hello, Miss Lynn! Chickens can be extremely odiferous little creatures, you may want to rethink the "under the door you may want to open for ventilation" thing. Seattle Tilth has some awesome information on raising chickens, as well as an edible plant sale going this mothers day weekend with people there happy to talk with you about your self sustainability aspirations!


You know I love to hear from you- thanks for leaving a comment!
