Chicken Coops, Building it Right the First Time

From the very first coop to the current set-up… it’s been quite a journey at TBN Ranch. I’ve said a million times to build a coop right the first time, if you don’t, you’ll end up spending even more later. Here’s why…
Bargain coops aren’t a bargain if they only hold up for two years and you have to buy another. If they’re too small or hard to clean, chicken keeping becomes an unwanted chore, and that’s especially true in inclement weather.  How do I know? Well, as you can see, I’ve paid my dues…

Bottom line… plan, prepare, and know your goal…  before you buy or build, and always build bigger than you need. If you need ideas on coop types, or entire set-ups, visit me on Pinterest. You’ll find more than a thousand pics of chicken coop types, brooder & nest box ideas, building plans, set-up ideas, and way more.
