I need to get a coop for my new chicks once they get bigger. I have 4 chicks. Would this be a good choice?

i NEVER recommend pre-fab chicken coops for chickens, they are WAY TOO SMALL! they also are insanely expensive, building if possible is ALWAYS a better option!! what kind of chicks did you get?? i cant wait to get some of my own!!!:love

I’ve only had hens for a year. Just started hatching chicks but I think that coop is a good set up. Is has all the gadgets to make it easy to clean and gather your eggs.

The pre-made coops are never as high quality as something you can build yourself. I saw that coop in person and it was weak, squeaky, and very small. It would only comfortably fit 2 chickens. I've seen coops like mine for over a thousand dollars, when we only used about 500 on mine.

But if it's the only way you can get a coop, I guess it would be pretty good.

You could still build a style like that which would be more sturdy. I built mine after looking at all the different ones out there. It gave me some great ideas.

I’ll show some I like to my husband and a few of his friends. They are always in the garage building speaker boxes, so why not give them a new job to build a coop!

I have 4 hens that lay everyday and they all lay in the same nest box so don’t think they each need one for themselves. Lol. I built 4 and I should have just built 2. But I have room to add more now that I’ve got new baby chicks hatching.
