    Gah! I’m sorry, I disnt see all of that! Thank you! I’ll contact a the $50 and $250 listing and see if they’re available. I was thinking of only keeping 3-5 to start, but based on past experience with all my current animals, I’m sure more would be in our future and didn’t want to have to spring for a larger coop soon after.

    Have you considered a storage shed? They are walk in, easy to convert to a chickens needs, secure with minimal modifications, and will provide housing for the flock and storage for all their supplies. The run can start simple with a welded wire fence and grow from there. 3-5 birds is a good starting point, but chances are the numbers will grow. It's best to go big from the start, the more room the better off you'll be in the long run. A coop you can stand and walk in will save you hours of aggravation when it comes to cleaning and maintenance.
