    I like #6 the best, but you could build your own for less

    The info on number 2 states it's made of "Chinese Fir". That makes me wary of everything from that company, since there is no way to know what chemicals were used to treat the wood. [​IMG]

    Many who have purchased these type of coops have reported problems with the durability of them.

    In my neck of the woods, a good sheet of 4 x 8 plywood (NOT OSB) runs under $18 a sheet.
