    Starting over with chickens and sticking to my guns this time to only have a few, just enough for eggs for our house. I liked the ease of the design of this coop, but was leery because it is corrugated plastic. I am going to add a run, and add wheels to turn it into a tractor. After assembling it this morning, I have found it to be more sturdy then I thought. My chickens will be ready in a couple weeks (POL pullets).

    $150 (shipping included) - poultrypods.com - not sure about super harsh winters. I just hope we don't get the snow nest winter that we got for this one.

    Uh, oh. That looks to me a lot like a chicken take-out box for raccoons. I hope you have a secure, covered run to put that in because I'm very concerned that it isn't even anywhere close to being predator resistant.

    Building a run around it and making it into a tractor.
