Pawhut Deluxe Chicken Coop, PIC'S on page 2 & 4

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 

I got this pawhut deluxe chicken coop from ebay brand new for $177.50 including free shipping.  I put it together just now and only took me abour 45 minutes.
This coop is for my White Beauty and her 5 week old chic.  Later this will be used for other reasons.  I only have to make a run and put some wheels on it to make it portable big_smile, that's tomorrows project and I will definately put some pic up.

Looks real nice and can't beat the price. Does the seller have an e-bay store?

I've been looking at these on ebay. How is the quality? I'm concerned it will only last a year or through 1 winter (I'm in PA).  I have one on my watch list I was going to make an offer on. PM me your sellers ID so I can see if I'm looking at the same seller, please? 

I think I will only have 2 to 4 chickens in it.

Thanks!!!!!

I love the look of this and have seen them on Amazon and Ebay, I was afraid of the price and quality of it.  So does it feel sturdy in person?  Would you recommend it?  fl

I would definately recommend it.  It looks very nice, functional, it's light weight but not too light like for the wind to flip it over.  The intruction is only 1 page and has bunch of numbers and few pictures.  It was fairly easy to assemble but you need to  be a bit experience. It all comes in pre-drilled, just have to screw it.  I was searching high and low to get a great price for a-frame 3x4 but it was too expensive.  The least expensive I found was $1,000 including the run & wheels.  With this, I paid $177.50 and I got 2 different set of wheels from Harbor freight, 1 is $14.99 each the other is $6.99.  I have to see tomorrow which wheel will work.  I was thinking of making it like a wheelbarrow.  Overall, I am very happy and pleased about getting it.  I guess depending on how you use it, meaning maintaining it regularly and where you put it  has to do with how long the coop will last. 

*I will make the run with 2x2 or 2x4 that I got just in case I come up with a new project wink and I already have hardware wire.  I think the wheels will be a greater challenge hu

what kind of wood is used?  I don't see that well but it appears to be cedar.  I always thought cedar fumes were toxic to chickens.   If it isn't cedar - nevermind!!

Let me see if I can go to the garage with my pj's and get a pic and post it.  But hopefully when and/or if I'm done with the run, I will post it.  I am really excited about this coop big_smile
