    After receiving 10 extra roosters with my McMurray order, I told my husband I needed another pen to raise them. He just rolled his eyes. [​IMG]

    So I started looking for a new coop since I have no building skills and don't have the time to build anyway. Found this little darling up in PA. The guy said it was a discontinued playhouse and he had a few to get rid of. When we went to pick it up, he tried selling me the others for cheaper then this one. It's a 6x6 with 3 working windows and a split door. We're going to eventually put it on wheels to move it around. And I'm buying a 10x10 dog kennel for this coop. It will eventually be a bantam yard. So if you live in the Lancaster, PA area and looking for a cheap coop, let me know.

    Adorable! Mind if I ask how much you paid for it?

    We paid $500 for this one because it was painted and had 3 windows. I thought that was a decent deal since most playhouses aren't cheap and neither are coops.

    That IS a deal. The cheapest I can find around here is about $1500, which I'm not spending. I'd snap one up if I could find it for that price.

    Love It ! If you have his info I would love to see what he might charge to deliver, we have several people around here that sell these Amish sheds so maybe he could put one on the truck....they charge twice that or more here for those as well.

    Keep us up updated with pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing it with the wheels and run installation attached. As they say -- "you done good".

    Quote:Will do. Just waiting for the snow to melt so we can get it into the yard. Then I need to pick up the kennel from TSC. Come on warm weather.
