    My coop is 20 years old and I'm thinking about getting a backup coop since who knows I might end up with 2 roosters. I live in 5 acres.

    Two roosters can co-exist if there are enough hens.

    It might be cheaper to have someone build a coop for you rather than buying one off of the internet.

    I would VERY MUCH suggesting getting someone to build one for you.

    Look through the billion coop pictures on this site, and then hire someone.

    As to roosters, it really just depends on how many hens you have. Also, if they are raised together the roosters are much more likely to get along.
