    Hey I'm new at the whole chicken thing but I've read almost everything I could find about chickens. I'm pretty sure I have prepared for all the stuff I need to buy like the type of feed,what knd of chicken (Australorp [​IMG] i like eggs) and the other basics....except for the coop...I am looking for a place where I can buy a reasonably priced chicken coop in ontario CA that can hold up to 6 chickens.

    I've seen some on craigslist that would work for me that were $300 to $400 less than I spent to build mine. There are two in North Georgia that really look good.

    There is a place in Waterloo, Ontario in Canada that sells chickens.

    The closest place to Ontario, CAL would probably be north of you at Belt Hatchery in Fresno.

  5. Don't buy any of the $300-$400 ones you see on the pet store websites or ebay.

    I struggled tremendously to find an inexpensive yet sturdy coop. I wound up with paying a college kid to build me a 4x6 coop with recycled wood for $350. For another $150(cost mostly hardware cloth), I built a large run.

    Good luck!
