If you live in a rural area, there's a good chance that either a nearby store or farmer sells do it yourself chicken coop kits. To find a supplier, it may take some calling around to local farm equipment dealers, feed suppliers, and even veterinarians specializing in livestock care.
If your search is not successful, you may be able to track one down online. We found a few good sources:
- Green Roof Chicken Coop Kits
- Eglu Cube Chicken House by Omlet
- Brougham ConvertiCoop Kit from Catawba Coops
Not to henpack or anything, but one major disadvantage to purchasing online is that you end up spending quite a bit of money to pay for shipping and handling. After all, chicken coops are not a lightweight little bundle that the UPS man can just plop on your front porch. Even if the vendor claims to provide "free shipping", you can bet your bottom dollar these costs are added into the price.
A good alternative is to build one from scratch. If you can get your hands on a good set of chicken coop plans, you may be surprised at what you can build in a weekend. The best plans come with detailed blueprints and material lists, and although you will have to cut your own lumber, there really is not much additional effort involved.
As always, if you find any other good sources of chicken coop kits, we would love to hear about them. Just leave a quick comment below...
