    Hello & welcome. You'll be addicted in no time lol. I built my own coop & It's way cheeper especially if you can reclaim materials. There is so much information here, just about anything you can think of. You can also find the thread for your state to find people in your area to buy chickens from in your area when you're ready.

    What state are you in? Maybe I can help you find it. Also i used to google what I wanted to look up & type "byc" after it & click the link that said it was on this site. It was easier when I first started.

    Not to mention you can build it to be whatever YOU want it to be, and save money in the process.

    I built my last coop out of some purchased lumber and a lot of reclaimed wood/materials. My next smaller coop will be almost entirely reclaimed building materials.
