    In about a month we will officially be chicken owners! I was wonder about how long it took to build your coop (pictures appreciated!), and approx how much you spent. Thanks!

    Our first "coop" was a large shed/building that came with the property, the second one was originally for the goats but now for the chickens, it's a 20' x 14' building with a clear plastic roofing for maximum light (it rains a LOT here) and took I believe 3 weeks to complete.

    Fencing and all took quite a while because our "runs" are enormous pens of pasture, woodlands, or a mix of both.
