First, you need to cut the wood. For the wood, choose the kind which has high quality and durability such as teak wood. Use fiberboard with medium density for the door of your chicken coop. The size of the wooden pieces will depend on the height of your chicken coop. The door should be high and half wide from the door opening. Then, install the door frame. Screw 2x2 along the side of the door opening, such as along the top. It will give you a strong place to screw the door hinges.
The next step is unite the front door. Screw 2 hinges on each door, one about 4 inches above the door and the other one is also about 4 inches from the bottom.
