    I'm going to start this to give everyone a chance to speak up about the best/cheapest buy for there coop.

    Mine is Nesting Boxes! I went to our local dollar tree and picked up 8 plastic cat litter bins. They are the perfect size and didn't cost an arm and leg to get.

    Who's next???? [​IMG]

    Quote:8 of them? How many chickens do you have? I have three nesting boxes for 12 chickens and it's more than enough.
