    Hello,
    My brother and I are looking to purchase our mother a prefab coop online(Hayneedle, Wayfair, etc) in the $250.00 range. She wants 2-3 chickens.

    I know many of you build your own, my brother and I are less than handy and prefer to go this route. Suggestions? Something that will hold up for a few years, where she can have a rooster/few hens for eggs.

    She would let them out to wonder during the day.

    Anyone own a prefab coop?

    Thank you in advance.

    Michael

    If it were only so simple.

    Unfortunately, I seriously doubt you'll find a prefab coop for that price...and most the ones for even twice that cost are junk, need fairly major modifications and can cause a plethora of potentially heartbreaking problems.

    Sorry to bear sad news and no optimism or encouragement for your endeavor.

    There are multitudes of stories about prefab coop sagas that you can scan thru here:
