As one who did by one of those coops...I wish people would post a link to those coops with photos and dimensions on here and ask for a review before they buy them. Most of the time we'll probably talk them out of it or suggest modifications to make them work.
I didn't post pictures and ask for a review before purchasing because I didn't even know about BYC. I spoke to my breeder about the best time to bring home my chickens and what to feed them and how to manage freezing water. I went online looking at coops, found TSC coops, and went to my local TSC to check them out personally. The box said 8 chickens, I was only getting 4. Great, I'm ahead already...not. And then there's chicken math.
I'm betting 99% of first time new coop owners have no idea they need to check to see if the company lies. If I buy a coffee maker to make 8 cups of coffee I assume that the one that says (on the box) it makes 4 cups is not the one I want. I buy the one that says 8 cups. A coop sold by a farm supply store would be assumed to know what they are doing and, hey, the box says 8 chickens. Why would any first timer think they were lying?
Shame on farm supply stores.
I now jump at the chance to quickly give my experience to newbies to help them get through the mistake and then move on to improving conditions. I have so much more to learn but this is something I can teach!
We gotta give newbies some empathy.
