Google chicken tractors. Small portable coops you can move easily. Would be great for a few chickens. I always had one next to the barn with a door so the could go back and forth.

Here's my homegrown chicken "tractor", built out of scraps and winging it. Was great to raise our young poults in, but would be crowded with adult birds.



You might look around for a used shed or something along those lines and convert it. There are literally thousands of pics on the web for chicken coops. Browse around and you'll come up with some good ideas.
