I am building new coop for my girls and have NO expereince in building. What I would like to know is what materials are reasonably priced and durable. It would be great if you could add in possible substatutes for the good materials, Thanks.

Well, the best is if you can find building materials for free or leftover scraps from construction sites. I picked up 3 2x4's 8 feet long from a remodel job for free, just had to remove the old screws.

If you can't find anything for free or reduced, I guess it depends on how thick you want your plywood, t-11 sideing, etc. Be sure to go to 2 or 3 different lumber yards to get quotes. The 2nd place I went to, the material was a bit more, but they delivered for free which made it a better deal.
