Cheap Chicken Coop Building With a Limited Budget

All around the world people are looking to keep chickens in their backyards. But when just starting out most people encounter the same problem, purchasing a coop to keep their chickens can come at a pretty high cost. The majority of us can’t afford to throw money away in these current difficult times so we are all looking at cheap options for everything – including chicken coops and runs. The good news is that I’ve found a way of building your chicken coop while keeping the costs within any budget. So now for a fraction of the cost of buying a coop you can build your own.

I know what you’re thinking, it’s going to take a lot of work to build a chicken coop, and you’d be right. It does take a lot of work, but it is FUN work, and the rewards are worth it. You’ll have your own coop customised to your needs, you’ll be saving a lot of money too. Building you own chicken coop will cost around half the cost of purchasing a pre-built coop. So if you want to save money and you’re up for a challenge then you need to consider building your own cheap chicken coop.

How can you get started? Well you need to decide how many chickens you’re going to house in your coop, obviously. The more chickens, then obviously the bigger the coop is going to be. When it is time you can grab a resource that will guide you through the whole process of building your own hen house. These guides are relatively inexpensive when you pick them up from the Internet.

Once you have a guide, then it’s just a trip to the store to get the necessary materials. The good news is that usually the good chicken coop guides will tell you exactly what you need. AND they’ll tell you exactly how to go about building it… every step, from the first nail to the last. It doesn’t get any better than that.

If you’re still not sold on the idea of building your own coop, then here’s something that might. The general cost. If you bought a medium sized coop that is pre-built then you could expect to pay anywhere from $800 to $2000, but if you built a medium sized coop instead, then you’re looking at purchasing the required materials for $400! Plus the cost of the guide, $30. Total cost = $430. If that takes your fancy then pick up the required chicken coop guide, purchase the materials and build your own customised chicken coop.
