Ok, I am thinking about getting a few chickens in the spring and am so confused by all the different coop styles! Sadly, I can't afford to build a permanent structure (nor am I handy) at this time, so am looking at smaller/more portable options to get started. I have a few places I could put the coop. One is down by the barn (on grass), the other is close to the house on grass, and third is out across the driveway. There is a flat sandy area, that was a volleyball pit with the previous owner. Which do chickens prefer? TSC has this one available for a good price. I've not had much luck with their products though, so I'm wondering what you guys think of it and if anyone here has used it and been happy with it? http://www.tscstores.com/FARM-HOUSE-POULTRY-HUTCH-P15973.aspx It's not their super small one, it's the one with the nesting box and a small area for them to roam. Is this a good option to start out? I thought it was good that the coop itself was raised off the ground a bit, and that they could go under it if it was raining or they wanted some shade from the sun. I think in the winter I can put the chickens in a stall in the barn (can they fly out over the top of the stalls?? The bars go up probably 7' - 8') with the horses, and spring through fall I can put them out in their little coop? Does this sound reasonable?
