    Hi
    My wife and I are just getting started with raising chickens for eggs, needless to say, we are newbies. I want to buy a premade coop and saw chickencondos.com. They look pretty good and was wondering if anyone here has a review for this company or can recommend a company. We are starting with 6 hens but buying a coop to house up to 15.

    Thank you for any input

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your new hens. Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

    BTW, here is their website. http://www.chickencondos.com/index.php/

    They are in Ogden Utah

    I just called and a nice woman answered and answered my questions, but I was wondering if someone more expert in coops than me could look at their products and see if they thought they were a good product.

    I was thinking about the Ultimate 4 x 6 Barn Coop.

    I really do appreciate all input. Thank You

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our "flock".

    I haven't bought any coops from Chickencondos.com. But, I do know that a 4 x 6 coop would be too small for 15 chickens. It would work out fine for 6, however. Ideally, each chicken should have at least 4 square feet of inside space. These are flexible dimensions, as some birds do okay is smaller spaces, and some need even more room to prevent fighting, but it is a good general rule of thumb to follow.

    Wyandottes7, I will definitely take that into consideration, as eventually we will have about 15 chickens and would rather they have more than enough room. I will be starting with only 6 chickens, to get our feet wet, so to say. When the time comes, I can then add another coop to make sure no one is crowded. Thank you very much for your input. It is very much appreciated.
