    For all those who don't feel they have the carpentry skills to build a coop I thought I would post a link to a helpful product. You could build a decent size coop with one of these kits. You would still need to buy the lumber but wouldn't have to figure out all the angled cuts. This one is from Northern Tool but I am sure you can get the kits elsewhere as well. I think you can use two kits to build a larger building.

    That's a really good idea I bet a lot of people will benefit from your suggestion.

    No, I have not. I always see them in the catalog. I have been debating purchasing one to build a greenhouse.
