    It's pretty but my 8x8 coop and 14 X 12 run did not cost even 1/4 of that.

    It looks really nice, but frankly I am a tightwad and could never bring myself to spend almost 1,000 on a chicken house! Lol.

    My coop was revamped from an already standing structure (3 sided tin building) and I bet we only spent about 100 bucks on it....maybe.

    Nice but too expensive.

    That is a beauty and I would be proud to have it in my back yard, but if I had a thousand dollars to spend on chickens I would spend a couple hundred to build a less pretty coop and the other 800 on the best breeder birds I could find.

    To me it is more about the chickens.

    That is one handsome coop that is for sure. I am sure with the care and skill required to build it the price is good as well.

    You can buy a 6x6 or even a 8x8 shed for less than that at lowes or Home depot

    I like it, I spent almost much on my breeder coop and that's without the runs ;-)

    Gorgeous... but I wouldn't pay that for it.

    Ask him what he'll sell you the plans for. [​IMG]

    I agree with connie, you can buy a heck of a nice shed for that price!
