We are moving and the buyers of our house want our chicken coop. Soooo, I've got to build another one at the new house. I will not have time to do this between the closings of the 2 houses (or much time thereafter, really), so I think I want to just order one of those premade ones with the small run incorporated and use that until I build something next spring. I have three hens who have yard access a few hours a day.
Does anyone have any experience with these? I know most people think they are horrible, but maybe there are one or two out there that are decent (and under $300-ish) that would last a year or so. Would love your thoughts.
Any other thoughts on moving with chickens very welcome as well. I guess we just load 'em up in a dog crate and introduce them to their new home. Should I worry about new parasites or bacteria in the soils??
