    Well I am new to this but from what I have seen most of the pre made stuff is small. I do know a few people make a real nice coop but then you will have to pay shipping and also put it together. I am building my own as with any thing you build yourself it is custom. Taylord to what you need and also where you are going to put it. I have to deal with trees and a hill so anything I could buy off the street I would probably have to change something. Good luck with you search.

    I think you'll find that it does not really matter much what people tell you here, because you can't manufacture a GOOD coop (by most BYCers ideas of what constitutes good chickenkeeping, anyhow) at a price competitive with the crappy ones out there, especially not when shipping is figured in.

    In general though I'd say they're all advertised for WAY more chickens than they ought to hold in nearly all peoples' situations (i.e. unless you live on Maui), and they've all got radically-inadequate ventilation (although it is hard TO ventilate adequately in a tiny coop, especially for the North).

    I do not expect that will ever change.

    Doubt that helps, but, good luck with your business,

    Pat
