Hello. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to the style of coop that would be so easy to put together that someone like me could build. The only things I can build are those pre-drilled types of furniture that you can buy in WalMart. LOL
I live in NW Pa, so we get snow in the winter, it can be pretty warm in the summer, and my yard can get somewhat soggy from the rain (certain spots of the yard are really bad). I wanted to keep about 5-6 chickens.
I've checked around on craigslist, but haven't been able to find anything. I don't think I could recycle a dog house for the number of chickens I want to keep. Haven't even been able to find a used kid's playhouse, either.
So, if anyone has any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate it. I also have VERY limited tools as well. I have a miter saw, I have a drill (but I don't like to use it). Could one just nail pieces together?
Maybe there is no such thing that is this ridiculously easy to build. I like the idea of those Catawba tractors, I'm not sure if anyone here has seen those, but that looks so terrifyingly hard.
I don't really know anyone around here that could help me build one either (we just moved to this area a couple months ago). I'd really like to have chickens and I know my kiddos are just dying to help raise some.
