Ok so I have been looking on here at coops and runs.. my oh my .... some people have quite a bit of money to spend. Now my husband is all for us getting our chickens.. but he doesnt want to be spending 4-6 $ per doz eggs. (inc the price of the chickens) I had some 4x4 posts laying around (ones that were too short for the fence.. put them in the ground (even one landscaping timber we somehow aquired.. I am putting chicken wire around it and we have a roll of screen we got that is going along the top. But we still need a coop.. I am wondering if anyone has any pics of economical coops.. I saw another one on here that was a basic home depot shed (ok sooooo far out of our price range) But I need some ideas as to what I can put together ... the chickens sleep in it at night but mostly on a perch right.. so that helps but how close can the nesting boxes and perchs be.. just some help for a lean too shelter for these guys... I would soo love to be able to spend buko bucks chickens but.. we are going to put $ in our house before the chicks house KWIM.. I really like the bucket idea and we have some lying around so I am going to do some of those..
