Handcrafted Chicken Coops

Our handcrafted chicken coops are the ultimate standard of comfort and protection. Whether you need a modest coop for your backyard flock or a customized coop for a larger estate, we have your solution. Made with lumber sourced from a renewable farm in California, these coops are built to last!

Select Your Solution

Consider the size and needs of your landscape, and then find a solution for your handcrafted chicken coop. Below, explore options for smaller backyard coops, or larger, customized coops and runs. All options are handcrafted with durable, regionally-sourced materials.

Backyard Chicken Coops

Coops for Backyards

Accommodating up to 12 chickens, our backyard chicken coops are built to order for each customer. They are specially designed for safety of the chickens, ventilation, and easy maintenance. Choose from four different designs to suit your individual needs and preferences.

Coops for Large Estates

We build custom chicken coops for larger estates, special flock sizes, or specific agricultural applications. We have worked with renowned designers and household names across the state. Contact us to design your chickens’ dream coop.

The Dream Difference

As with all of our work, our handcrafted chicken coops are made with quality, sustainability, and humaneness in mind. We build every coop with utmost attention to detail, and with a desire to provide your chickens with a dream home that lasts. Learn more about the Dream Difference here.

Quality Materials

We use sturdy materials that ensure safety of the chickens and durability of the coop.

Sustainable Lumber

Our lumber is sourced from Big Creek Lumber in Santa Cruz, California, a family-owned lumber company with sustainable forestry practices. 

Safe Hardware Cloth

We use 1/2-inch Hardware Cloth to maintain a clean look, keep predators away, and resist rodents and other pests. The wire is used all around the sides and the top of the run, as well as over ventilation holes and windows. 

Premium Hardware

Unlike our competitors, we use only Premium Hardware (e.g., latches, hinges), which is durable and lasting. It also increases the coop’s security, preventing predators like raccoons from breaking and entering. 

Maintenance

Sanitation is the key to a healthy flock. We design coops so that you can clean and maintain them easily.

Large Coop Doors

Provide easy access to simply sweep out and remove soiled pine shavings or litter.

Removable Roosts 

Make it easy to clean inside the coop, and allow you to pull out the roosts for sanitizing too!

Linoleum Flooring 

Easy to wipe down and sanitize when cleaning chicken coops.

No Poop Trays

A poop tray is a gimmicky feature that can be difficult to clean. Trays deep enough to hold litter are cumbersome. Lightweight trays become crusted in poop that is tough to clean, smelly, and attracts flies.

Highest Humane Standard

Chickens’ health and happiness are best cared for with sufficient space, and coop features that encourage natural behavior. 

Humane Sizing

We recommend approximately 10 square feet per chicken. Our chicken coops are rated for a lower and more reasonable number of chickens than our competitors to give them space and relieve stress.

Real Roosts 

These allow your chickens to perch higher off the ground and will make your chickens feel safe.

Fully secured nesting boxes 

These give a safe cozy space for egg laying and prevent animals from forcing their way through flimsy flooring or lids. 

Large windows and ventilation holes

These provide ample ventilation and natural light for chickens. 

Ready to Order?

Great things take time! Our handcrafted chicken coops are made to order and built to last. Here’s what to expect when you order your chicken coop.

1. Understand Lead time

After you order your coop, we’ll start building it! Expect a lead time of 2-6 weeks, depending on the size, materials, location, and other determining factors.

2. Prepare ahead of Delivery

Prior to the delivery, please follow these requirements for installation:

3. Choose Installation or DIY

You may choose installation or do it yourself. Installation is done by our team and takes approximately 1-4 hours. We will contact you to schedule your delivery time in advance.

4. Add Chickens & Supplies

We are able to deliver chickens and poultry supplies along with the coop. Please notify our customer service team that you would like to add your order of chickens to the delivery. Orders are subject to availability at the time of the coop installation, not at the time the coop is purchased.

5. Notify Us of Changes

If you’re unable to meet the installation requirements, please notify us before your scheduled delivery. The installation team is not responsible for site modification, removing old coops, or landscaping without advanced notice. If the site is not ready, the coop will not be installed. An additional installation fee will apply if a return visit is required to finish the installation of the coop.

6. Learn the Cancellation Policy

Orders for standard chicken coops may be cancelled for a full refund within 48 hours. After 48 hours, a variable fee for cancellation will be deducted from the amount of the refund based on the progress of coop construction. We do not accept cancellations for custom chicken coop orders.

I couldn't be more pleased.  Our chicken coop was delivered and set up by Jeremy and Chris.  It surpassed my expectation and was, indeed, worth the price.  Solid wood construction.  Heavy duty hardware and painted in a very appealing two tone that really contributes to my back yard's ambiance. I highly recommend this method of securing a durable, secure and attractive coop.  They are made by decent and honest people who you can trust.

We love our new coop and Dare to Dream Farms! Jeremy and Megan were very patient and kind throughout the entire process. Jose and Cole came to deliver and set up our coop and we’re hardworking, kind and great at their job. And our 4 “City Chicks” seem to be settling in. Now we need a veggie garden please!

I purchased a chicken coop from Dare2dream in March 2018.  The staff was very professional and they were on time when they delivered my coop.  I was very happy once it was put together, it's now 4 months later and I'm still very pleased with my coop. Thanks Dare 2 Dream Farms.

This beautiful coop is a life changer. Not only is it beautifully built it is gorgeous and the chickens love the roomy coop. They will sometimes just go into it during the day and look around like they can't believe they live here. Dare2Dream worked with me on the customizations and tweaks to make it perfect for my specific yard -- great communication and delivery.

I am over the moon with my new chicken coop! The team at Dare 2 Dream Farms are amazing!! They gave me great advice and I was able to find the perfect coop for my back yard. They came and installed it very quickly! The best part is that if I move or decide I want my coop in another place I can dismantle it by panel and easily move it somewhere else! If only they gave lessons to my girls on how to use a coop... But they are slowly getting the idea! Thank you so much Dare 2 Dream Farms!!!
