    I'm new to raising chickens and plan to start with four hens that will be free range. I'm confused by the number of choices in coops. I want to ensure that they have enough space and are warm enough, as I don't own a barn or outbuilding. Will this be necessary in the winter months? Does anyone have a link for a good website for ordering a coop? Any help is appreciated.
    Thank you!

    for 4 hens you don't need a barn or a large structure have you clicked on the coop tab on here they have lots of coops categorized by size small, medium, large. As far as ordering a coop i can't help i built mine its 4x6 and took a weekend. Good luck finding what your looking for though. [​IMG]
