I have been wanting chickens for a few years now, last year we finally bought a house. I would like to someday get a permanent coop/garden shed (something along the lines of 12X12) but that will be someday and I would like chickens sooner then that Background: so I was looking at tractors. For us a tractor would be in the orchard in the spring/summer/fall and closer to the house in winter (for wind protection and to make it easier to check on them and possibly provide electric if needed). I don't want more then 6 or so chickens and have 4 picked out from meyer (close enough to pick up for us). 4 will provide us will more eggs then we can eat and prolly more then we can give away. The orchard will be fenced with deer fence (about 7.5') and will be about 115'X30'. They will probably "free range" there most every day in nicer weather. I like this plan for a tractor http://richland.uwex.edu/files/2010/11/A3908-02.pdf I think I could build it for about $150 including paint and using a differnt roofing. But my husband made a good point that we would make mistakes and it would end up costing us more in the long run and he isn't sure about the wood, even treated wood. He found one on ebay, but it was very small, about half the size of the diy one. Then I saw this one: http://www.cconlystore.com/CC-68-R2-CC-68-R2.htm we live close enough to pick it up so it's only $412 and we won't have to go back to the store or second guess the plans or make any cuts. Making more then one trip for wood is not an option as I drive a small car and my husband works a lot. The dimensions according to the site are: Coop ( 38.5" W x 46.5" D x 50" H) Run ( 38.5'W x 43"H x 65"L ). or about 3.2'X3.875 (12.4sq) for the coop and 3.2'X5.41' (17.3sq) for a total of 29.7sf or 7.4sft per bird for 4 hens. So, if you are still there after all my random ramblings has anyone gotten a coop from cconly? I wish they had a retail store I could go look at, but it seems they only have a warehouse. Does it look like I could move this one on my own? Maybe if we added wheels?
