Boy, those Sunrise Coops look nice. So does your new one Fire Ant Farm. Hopefully one of these days I will feel confident enought to build a coop. That is true, it just depends on how fast you want to get started. I ordered mine from Urban Coop. I waited for about a month and then it shipped to our home. It took 1 day to ship. The shipping was around $100.00
Thanks - I'm pretty proud of myself for getting it done. The instructions were really clear. There were a lot of collateral benefits as well - I learned a LOT about building things that I will be able to use to build other things (tractors, etc.), and I have the confidence to do so. It was intimidating at first, but I'm so glad I did it. (Though I need a rest!) I'm actually going to build them some of the structures in the Garden Run next (like little connecting rooms). I'll say, one benefit of starting with something smaller first if you're new to chickens is that it's easier to build a coop if you already know what you want out of it from having taken care of your birds for a while. I made a couple small tweaks in the plans that I probably wouldn't have otherwise.
