If youre raising chickens in the city then youre probably thinking that owning a large chicken coop is already out of the question. Space after all is one of the biggest limitation of urban chicken owners when it comes to building their chicken coop. So they usually make the mistake of designing their coop around the available space rather than their chickens needs. The result? Big city chickens living in cramped chicken coops. Of course the definition of what "large" is is very subjective especially in the context of the-countryside-hills-over-yonder standards versus the beyond crowded city standards. To put things into perspective lets just say that a large chicken coop in the countryside is a decent-sized apartment downtown. While a large chicken coop in the city is the walk-in closet in that decent-sized apartment downtown.

If you have a smaller coop and is also using the floor of your coop as the chickens run you can turn this element into a wall design instead. For the walls you can paint it with the iconic soup can paiting or any kind of print with geometric patterns.
