Handcrafted Chicken Coops
Custom Chicken Coops
We build custom coops for larger estates, special flock sizes, or specific agricultural applications. We have worked with renowned designers and household names across the state.
Built to Order Coops
Our line of backyad chicken coops are handcrafted, and made to order for each customer. Our lumber is sourced from a renewable local farm in California, and they are built to last.
Why Dare 2 Dream?
Built for Safety
Hardware Cloth (1/2 inch) is used for a clean look, to keep predators from reaching or tearing through, and to 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 (latches, hinges) will not deteriorate in the first few years like our competitors' coops. This hardware is also used to prevent predators like raccoons from breaking and entering.
Easy to Clean
Sanitation is the first and best trick to keeping a healthy flock. Here's why our coops are easier to keep clean than others.
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 is easy to wipe down and sanitize when cleaning the coop.
No Poop Trays: A poop tray is a gimmicky feature that is usually more difficult to clean. Trays deep enough to hold litter are cumbersome and difficult to handle. 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 coops are rated for a lower and more reasonable number of chickens than our competitors to give them space and relieve stress.
Real Roosts allow your chickens to perch higher off the ground and will make your chickens feel safe.
Fully secured nesting boxes 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 provide ample ventilation and natural light for chickens.
What to expect
Ready to get started? Here's what to expect for timing, delivery, installation, and cancellation.
Our coops are built to order and have a lead time of 2-6 weeks, depending on the size, materials, location, and other determining factors.
Installation can take between 1-4 hours.
Adding 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.
Delivery & Installation
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 deliery time in advance.
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 construction of the coop.
Prior to the delivery:
The installation site must be chosen.
The ground must be flat AND level.
The pathway to the installation site must be free of obstructions and maintain a minimum 30" wide clearance at all times.
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.

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.

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!!!
