    We bought this coop in March for $600. Yep, six hundred! WAAAAAY over priced IMO. It was from our feed store. Just wanted to share what it looks like with you. Now that we're getting ready to expand the flock, it is becoming a sick/injured coop. What do you think? We recently added that run and chair. It is not our current coop, right now it's empty (chicken math).

    Well, it's a cute enough tractor - looks fairly easy to move, but $600 [​IMG] is WAY overpriced.

    It is definitely a keeper but you could have one made or built it yourself much cheaper. I like that it will become the sick/injured ward or your breeding pen, even! [​IMG]

    Quote:I think it would also work great for a broody coop. The upstairs is pretty much four big nests, very dark and private. But then, I have other plans for that.

    Well now you have a model to go by for your next coop! You might be kicking yourself for the money spent but trust me my hands are swollen and aching from wire after we build. Have fun with birds.
