    I'm in the same boat as chickendave. I was intent on buying one of these, even against the advice I had read, but once I started scoping materials I've found it much less expensive to build my own. Now that said with only my own imagination as a limitation the size of my coup, and in turn the cost, has ballooned significantly, but it's nice knowing I have the space to double my flock and that everything will be solidly built.

    I would be interested in how the return process goes for you so if you wouldn't mind a follow up post here, I would appreciate it.

    Do you find that your hens will lay if you plAce nesting boxes on the ground inside their run? Or do they always have to actually go inside the coop?

    Loveourchitches -- the owner was very nice and said he was surprised that he didn't think it would work for us but waived the 15% restocking fee he normally charges for returns. After a request he was willing to schedule a pick up for me but I ended up throwing it on Craigs List and sold it to someone who was looking for a coop for 3 chickens. So it all worked out.

    I did find a coop that was well built and bigger locally (also on Craigs List) and I'm rehabbing it. :)

    Thank you for all the responses!! I so appreciate it!
