How much would it cost? How could I make it? Or where could I buy it? Where should I set it up? How should I set it up? Thanks in advance.

No answers to any of your questions, sorry :( but hubby is wanting to do this with our coop. He googled solar panels and seems convinced he can do them. Maybe a google search would help you?

It seems the biggest question is: what do you want to power?
If it's just some lights, use LED's and you can get away with a very small system.
If you want to run heaters, a big stereo and a disco ball you'll need more.

Seem like I have read some where somebody tried the solar/heater thing and only worked for a while because it would drain battery quickly?

What are you trying to do??? Solar panels for heat? light? automatic door?? Personally, I couldn't see why you would need any kind of power for a chicken coop. Keep it simple
