    I just saw some of these online and was wondering if anyone here has tried them and how they work.

    They look like they would make good TEMPORARY coops, but I'm not so sure about permanent..?

    They look so simple & easy!!

    Opinions anyone?


    Here's some pictures, everywhere says theyre made from cattle panels and basic wood framing, and of course plastic of tarps.

    Have you got a link you could post to the hoop house coops? I don't think I've ever heard of or seen one!

    I thought about this for a turkey run... Is it made from fence panels?..The ones i saw where fence panels with rebar running thru the bottom for weight tack down with lawn spikes and boom badda bing youre done... I think these are awesome and would be so easy to care for ..

    I have been thinking about these all winter. I have lots of cold and snow to worry about. But there is a guy in VT? who has used one of these for a few years now with good luck.http://sugarmtnfarm.com/blog/2006/01/chicken-sunroom-how-to.html

    His are made out of cattle panels. I have also seen these used for greenhouses and coop/greenhouse combo...

    If my hens had all that straw laying around there would be eggs all over the floor. Maybe my girls are just obnoxious.

    I made a hoop house for my chickens and they LOVE it! I love it too. So nice for my small backyard and my small flock
