Have any of you "built" a coop from one of the kits? TSC has a couple on sale this week, but they do not get good reviews.
I need something that will house 3-4 chickens, that is movable (preferably by hand/on wheels), that can let me add a turnout area, if it doesn't already have one. During the days, I'd like to eventually let the chickens free roam, but in severe temp extremes, and at night, they'll need to be cooped to keep them safe.
I also prefer not to spend $500+ on a kit, for something that is going to roost and crap in it, especially if I find that predators get into it, no matter how much effort I put into making it safe. Will be an expensive pile of plywood and mesh fence, in that case.
So, any of you have experience with any of the kits? Pros/cons/easy mods? Links?
Been wanting to do this for several years, and might not get it done in time to put chicks in it this Spring, but could get it here, and be ready to assemble it next March and have ready for the April chick delivery.
