Handcrafted Chicken Coops: Your Gateway to Self-Sufficiency in Cornwall

21st August 2023

Today, we’re diving into the heart of sustainable living. The charm of cultivating your patch of green, reaping your harvest, and embracing the wonder of backyard livestock is nothing short of a horticultural love affair. And what better companion for this journey than our fine-feathered friends – chickens! Join me as we explore the joys of self-sufficiency, the delightful world of keeping chickens, and the secure havens Truro Portable Buildings Ltd has created for them right here in Cornwall.

The Path to Self-Sufficiency: There’s a certain satisfaction in knowing exactly where your food comes from, and chickens play a starring role in this narrative. Not only do they grace us with delicious eggs, but they’re also splendid partners in clearing garden beds, devouring kitchen scraps, and contributing their fair share of nutrient-rich manure for the garden. This delightful cycle of giving and receiving adds a touch of authenticity to the concept of sustainable living.

The Chicken Adventure: Now, let’s delve into the world of chicken keeping – a true voyage of feathered discovery. From selecting the right breeds to creating the perfect coop, there’s a wealth of knowledge to be gained. Considerations like space, shelter, and the social dynamics of your flock are pivotal. And this is where Truro Portable Buildings Ltd steps in with their expertly crafted chicken coups and runs, lovingly handcrafted right here in beautiful Cornwall.

Embracing the Feathers: Truro Portable Buildings’ chicken coups are more than just shelters; they’re sanctuaries for your feathered companions. These coups offer security, comfort, and a cozy retreat for your chickens to roost, nest, and go about their clucking endeavours. With their sturdy construction and thoughtful design, these coups stand as a testament to the seamless blend of functionality and aesthetics.

Guardians of the Coop: Security is paramount when it comes to our fine-feathered friends. Truro Portable Buildings Ltd has taken every measure to ensure your chickens are safe from prowling predators. These coups are built with fortified materials and ingenious designs that thwart any unwanted night time visitors. So, while your chickens rest easy, you can rest assured knowing that they’re in the best hands possible.

From Scraps to Delights: The story doesn’t end at just shelter and security. Chickens, being wonderful omnivores, are avid fans of kitchen scraps. Those carrot tops, lettuce leaves, and even the occasional bug – it’s all gourmet dining to them. This not only minimizes waste but also imparts a touch of farm-to-table charm to your kitchen endeavours.

Conclusion: As we embrace the pleasures of sustainable living, the companionship of chickens becomes an integral part of this journey. Truro Portable Buildings Ltd’s handcrafted chicken coups stand as symbols of the harmony between nature and our aspirations. They offer a secure haven for our delightful clucking companions and become cornerstones of the self-sufficient utopia we’re all striving for.

So, whether you’re a seasoned farmer or an urban dweller dreaming of your patch of green, remember that the world of chicken keeping is a chapter worth adding to your story of sustainable living. And with Truro Portable Buildings Ltd’s chicken coups and runs, this journey becomes not only joyful but also beautifully secure. Happy clucking, my fellow adventurers!


  • I'm extremely pleased with my new garden shed from Truro Portable Buildings, and also with their treatment of me as a customer. The shed is a first class product, excellent quality, delivered in a short timescale and erected in about two hours. The process of choosing a design was made easy by quickly-answered phone calls, and the honesty of the management was demonstrated when I was stopped from accidentally over-paying! Great team, great product. - S Ellis

  • Terrific building and company. I had a 12x8 Sherman built in August, great to be able to remove the old eyesore from the garden and get sorted again. Great build quality, speed of order was fair and the fitters were timely and no stress. Glad I went for the superior shed from Truro Portable Buildings, I would highly recommend. Very pleased - P Ascott
