Here's the deal we need to expand and secure our chickens better come spring, right now they are in a "large" (what a joke) coop. We would like to get them into a bigger easier excess style home. Hubby just wants to buy a plastic style shed 7x7 size$900 not including having to modify the inside for their comfort. or he will just get another premade coop that would make life easier $1000+ but maybe a little larger than what we have rolling now. I would like to know if it would be a better investment/cost effective to build our own. maybe not 7x7 but still bigger than what we have rolling now. we do plan to do an enclosed dog kennel w/roof for their outdoor area attached to whatever we choose. Is it possible to make something under $1000 that is nice and secure? TIA for your input.
