My sister lives in another state from me and has decided to take the backyard chicken plunge after seeing how much we enjoy our flock. She would like to have 6 hens to begin with - possibly 8. However, she's the least handy person on the planet and there is simply no way that she could reasonably build even a simple coop using hammer and nails. It would be a recipe for disaster. She's also a single mom with a busy job as a nurse, so building a coop just isn't a great option for her. So she's been looking at some of the available store or online catalog available coops to buy pre-made or ready to assemble, and she's sending me links to ask me what I think, and they all look like theyre made of very cheap materials with soft woods and staple construction instead of more substantial materials. Plus, the ones that advertise themselves as being big enough for 4-6 chickens are really only big enough for 2-3 chickens. There are some exceptions, like the Omlet Eglu, but it retails for $1500, which is WAY more than she can spend on the coop alone. Does anyone know of a fairly priced, store bought (or online store bought) coop that will actually house 6 hens, and that's constructed well? She doesn't need a run because she can place it inside a large chainlink dog kennel that was left behind by the previous owners of their house, and then she has a securely fenced back yard around that. But she needs a sturdy, at least moderately attractive henhouse with room for 6 hens to roost, rest and lay their eggs, and which can be locked at night. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
