    Hi, I started with 5 chicks and bought a Chik-N-Barn for them for which I paid $300 new at the local feed store. I saw that My Pet Chicken also carries this product. I want to expand my flock and am planning on building a bigger hen house. I am wondering if anyone would be interested in purchasing my Chik-N-Barn; it's been used for about 2 months and is in great shape. I am located in Bellingham, WA. There are 3 egg doors on the one side of the coop too. It would be ideal for a small number of chickens, like 4-6, or up to 8 bantams.
    I'm working on some pictures; I have mine on a stand I constructed so that it's off the ground about 16 inches. It's possible that the stand could be included, depending on how I end up construction the new coop.

    Try using seattle.craigslist.org to post your chick-n-barn. I've had good luck with using it. I find that most commercial coops are incredibly tiny, and we all know we want more than can fit into them! Good luck.

    Just a thought, I would keep it in case of a sick bird or if you decide you want to keep a certain breed for breeding purposes. It can be tied into the bigger coop/run. [​IMG]

    I would love, love, love to have it but I'm in Illinois.

    Pick up is impossible and shipping would cost a fortune - dang it![​IMG]

    Would it be possible to ship? I live in RI and need a place for my 6- 2 month old chickens to live, aside from my covered porch which we would really like to turn back into dining area.

    Kayri, sorry but I don't think shipping would be cost-effective for either of us. It's big, and I wouldn't want to disassemble it.

    Thanks.

    Quote:Yeah, why don't you keep it. What if you wanted to breed a certain bunch of birds? I had one cage... then built one for silkies... then built one for new birds... and was thinking about making a fourth... Looks much better than my little separator pens. They are 4x8 runs with 2x4 houses attached. Only costs about 50 bucks or so.... I think... I use free paint from recycle and have wire lying around though.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am keeping it after all; my S.O.( for lack of a better term) is irritated that I am putting forth so much effort "for a bunch of chickens" so I am pretty much not counting on his help in building a bigger house. I had to finally admit that it'd probably be too time consuming and frustrating for for me to figure it out, as I have no carpentry skills.
