    So I ordered a 75" chicken coop with nest box and run. It came in today and I was SO excited!... until we went to put it together... they only shipped half of the parts!!!!! The box say 1 out of 2 but they only gave me one tracking number. I sent them a message. Has this happened to anyone else? :(

    I hope it will be here today but I'm worried that it got lost in the warehouse and they forgot to send it :( I would build my own coop but I don't even know where to begin lol

    Well we've all have packages get lost, delivered late, etc. This is no different. Just... heavier.

    I ordered a coop that showed up in 3 boxes. I don't recall if each had its own tracking number or not. They did all show up on the same day, but were not strapped or taped to each other in any way.

    Contact the coop company (or wherever you ordered from) and let them know what box you received and what box you're missing - if it's a good company they should offer to resend any missing parts. I would also contact the shipping company (UPS, FedEx) with the tracking number and see if it turns up somewhere in their system.

    I set up my chicken coop yesterday and it's so small :( I wish I could build my own coop but I'm not very handy and I have 3 young children that are very hard to contain lol it would take me like a year lmao I ordered, the same kind but I'm scared they're not gonna have enough room ! It's 75" x 26"

    From the nest box to the end of the run is 75" and the whole thing is 26" wide. I have 4 chicks right now, 2 Rhode Island reds and 2 red old English game bantams. I just ordered another coop, same size because I know it won't be enough room. I'll send pictures of everything in detail when I get home from work tonight or in the morning when there's light
