    Getting excited about starting with BYC's. Does anyone have recommendations places for buying coops in the Southern NJ area ?
    Looking for new, but will buy used if the price is right.

    Have you tried Craig's list? Often people are getting rid of coops and whatever birds they have due to moving or discovering it's not what they want anymore. Sometimes you can even find dog runs or fencing that would be very useful.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. Generally, coops for sale are not exactly great, and often they do not accommodate the number of chickens that they claim. If you can squeeze a pre-fab garden shed into your setup you and use that as a coop, or build your own, you may find it more economical in the long run.

    Good luck
