Making a chicken hutch is ideal if you are not going to raise more than one or two chickens at a time. Hutches are not complicated structures, but some woodworking skill will help the project speed along. Before you begin this project, however, check city codes in your corner of the world to see if there are any restrictions or guidelines for raising chickens.
Apply glue to two of the 1-by-2-by-30-inch lumber and secure them to one of the 30-inch edges of the 30-by-12-by-¾-inch plywood with the 3d box nails. These are supports for the chicken hutch floor.
Secure the sides to the 36-by-24-by-¾-inch plywood to with the 3d box nails. Next, build a rectangular frame with the 2-by-2-by-36-inch lumber and the 2-by-2-by-21-inch lumber placing the 21-inch pieces between the 36-inch pieces.
Secure the two 1-by-2-by-37½-inch pieces of lumber to the bottom side of the 37½-by-31½-by-¾-inch plywood with the 3d box nails. Next, secure the 1-by-2-by-30-inch lumber between the 37½-inch pieces with the 3d box nails. This is the top to the chicken hutch.
