    Looking for suggestions on pricing, not sure how far I want to pursue building these. Thanks for the help!

    They are very cute. I'm not too good on pricing though, I'll let someone else answer this one.

    I have built some chicken tractors, mine were 4x8 total and sold them for $200. The top one does not look that big i would ask $100 for it and the bottom one i would ask $50 for it. And that is if they have nesting boxes in them with easy access and roosting poles in them. They look nice though, good work!

    Should have mentioned sizes. Top one is 4' long by 2', flip top roof alot of easy accesses. Bottom one is 46" by 22", plan to add handles for ease of lifting, flip top roof, and a run to it if things go well.

    It all depends on your area i would check out places that sell them even check craigslist etc.. my area you cant even get a wood doghouse for under 100.00-150.00 so do ur research for your area! then price them accordingly

    Those are cute, but micro tiny.

    Are you trying to market to people who want a silkie or two?

    Someone on another thread said to double the cost of your materials... If the price is then too high, you may need to modify your plans to make it worth your while.

    I love your micro-coop! Nice work! I bet you'll sell a lot.
