So you’ve decided to raise chickens in your backyard and you’re ready to buy a chicken coop. Congratulations! But which coop is best for you and your chickens? Unfortunately that’s a rather loaded question.
There are many different kinds of coops, and it can be tough to choose among them all. The questions seem limitless. What breed do you plan to raise, and how big are they? Is your climate hot or cold? How big is your backyard? What kind of predators live near you?
Well fear not. While the variables are many, the choices really boil down to only three:
1) Buy a pre-built, ready-made chicken coop – Pre-built coops are a fine idea. They are usually well made and well designed. But they can also cost an arm and a leg. New ready-made coops start around $ 500, but most cost well into the $ 1000’s. And that doesn’t even include installation. Also, don’t forget the costs of shipping too.
2) Design and build it yourself – You could just “wing it” – no pun intended. You can start from scratch and build it yourself, even without a plan. Sometimes that will work, but often it doesn’t. As the builder, you will likely end up frustrated and confused, and your chickens could be a bit unhappy too. Unless you’re the handyman or carpenter type, this option is probably not the best for you.
3) Buy plans and build it yourself – Welcome to the best of both worlds. Ideally, if you buy the plans from an experienced chicken farmer, you will have a design that works wonders for both you and your chickens. Be sure the plans are easy to follow, especially if you’re not a carpenter by trade. Also, look for a solid design that can be built out of inexpensive materials.
Whatever you choose, congratulations on moving forward. May your new coop provide comfort and convenience for you and your hens for a long time to come.
