If you are new to raising chickens for eggs, we suggest buying or building the coop then ordering the chickens.
In the next several posts we will present ideas for manufactured coops that can be delivered to your door as well as DIY plans for various coops that you can build yourself with little building experience.
The fact of the matter is you don't need a farm to keep your own chickens, you just need a small area in your backyard to setup your coop! Many coops will fit in an 8x8' space or less.
Building your own chicken coop will be one of the best decisions you'll make in your life. Your own backyard chicken coop will provide you with daily fresh organic eggs for the kitchen. It will recycle your families food scraps and produce high quality fertilizer for your garden.
It makes perfect economic sense to build a chicken coop yourself instead of buying an expensive pre-built chicken coops. Pre-built coops have to be assembled anyway, you're really just paying hugely inflated prices for the material.
