    hey,
    I just got some new pullets and I don't have a great coop. I was wondering where y'all got yours in the past and if you have any recommendations.

    Most of us built ours ourself. It allows us to put then together the way we want them (for the most part anyway).

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. We built them ourselves with screws because we are always changing something around. :thumbsup

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. Glad you joined us. We built ours ourselves, too. Have you checked out the Coop pages on here to get some ideas?

    Hello and :welcome

    Our coop was already in place when we moved in here. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, as long as it's weather and predator proof. Ours is pretty much just a tin/chicken wire shell with a door. :p

    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
