    I was looking at one of the coops on Wholesale Chicken Coops. Has anyone purchased from them and if so, what is your opinion of the product you received.

    Thanks! Moonlyghtegirl

    Just an idea. You might see if a local high school has a woodshop class who would like to take on a project. If you supply materials, they'll build it and be grateful for an experience.

    Wholesalechickencoops.com sells those sort of cheap cedary looking wood coops. If you get up next to one at Agway or one of your local feed stores they are made of rather thin wood that warps pretty fast after getting wet. My advice is keep looking (we had considered one of them last year when we got started as we are not carpenters. We dealt with a guy in Long Island New York whose website is almost the same name wholesaleCHICKcoops.com and he was great. We got our coop delivered all the way down to Jackson New Jersey by them. We spent a bundle on the coop and run but we've been doing this chicken thing a year and we got the bug and plan on staying in it...

    We wish you the best of luck deciding on what to do, If you can wait a little bit save your money and invest in something sturdy and maybe a little larger than you had planned. They are never big enough and I swear once you get a couple chickens you'll want a couple more and wish your coop was bigger. We had two, now we have eight and a bunch of eggs in friends incubator.

    Quote:We have electrical outlets and a overhead ceramic lamp socket in the coop so this morning I ran a 100 ft heavy duty extension cord out there and plugged it in, got a 250 watt infrared heat lamp going to take the chill off the coop - it is cool and windy as I write this. The almost 12 week olds are out in the run loving it, and they have the warmth of that insulated coop any time they change their minds. We will be having sunny weather all day and I am gonna put a chair in the run and hang out with them reading.

    How much did your coop cost. How much was the shipping?

    My coop is almost done. I hope it looks as good as yours. I have 25 Hens coming the end of may so I still have a little time to complete it. There are so many good Ideas on this site and so much Information. I don't know how long It would have taken me to figure everything I need to do out. Being my first birds I think I would have made alot of mistakes.
