Low Cost Chicken Coops

The lowest cost way to house your hens may be to convert an existing shed or build one from scratch, especially if you have scrap wood available. However, if you're pressed for time or lack carpentry skills then you need to buy a coop.

There's a huge range of arks, coops and houses available with a wide range of prices. Having looked around we were surprised how some of the more expensive models were actually not that well constructed or even well designed.

This range of chicken coops from Chicken Coops Direct however ticked all the boxes. They're well designed to start with. After all, good design doesn't add to cost, if anything it should reduce cost.
