Présentation de l'éditeur

Brand New: Save Money on a Chicken Coop!

[Note: This is a short "idea" book, not a set of building plans. Wherever possible, I have included links to simple building instructions for these ideas online, but you'll need to be somewhat creative with the materials available to you. If you're ready to save some money on a coop and start thinking outside the box ('outside the coop'), then please read on!]

You're thinking of getting some chickens to lay eggs in your backyard. And then you look at the price of chicken coops. Holy manure! $900 for a fancy box? What are they thinking? You decide that maybe you can make your own chicken coop on the cheap. So you download some free building plans.

Browsing through the coop plans, your eyes fix on the simplest hen house design. Okay, you're thinking, that might be doable...in about five weekends. Then you read on and realize you don't own a table saw... and you've never even heard of an auger bit. So you put your coop-building project on the back burner for awhile. This is a real shame, because you'd love to have chickens.

It shouldn't have to be this way. Somewhere between the overpriced, readymade coops and the major DIY construction projects is a middle ground. I wrote this short book to introduce you to some functional alternatives: coops and non-coops made of affordable materials that are fairly simple to create (even for a non-builder like me).

Contents Include:

1. Cheaper Alternatives
Skipping the High Cost Chicken Coops

2. The 8 Things Every Chicken Coop Needs
Add Them To Any Structure and You Have a Coop

3. A-Frame Chicken Ark
A Functional and Affordable "Normal" Coop

4. Garden Hoophouse
Really Simple and Dirt Cheap

5. Chicken Box
Minimalist Design for Non-Builders

6. Go Native
Use Local Materials

7. Repurposing Big Ticket Items
Curbside Treasures and Old Vehicles

8. Making a Small Bantam House From a Wine Barrel, or Pickle Barrel
How About a Garbage Can?

9. Converting a Doghouse, Shed, Storage Area, or Extra Room
Building a Roosting Room in Your Garage

10. The De-Constructed Coop
Letting Them Figure It Out

The coops in this book will never look like a $1500 gingerbread house, but they are as clean and functional as any other design. Making use of available structures and affordable materials, they keep costs and prep times to a minimum. Most importantly, your back yard chickens will have everything they need and will be thrilled with what you give them. As you know, happy chickens lay lots of eggs!

This is an idea book, not a set of building plans. However, for many of these coop designs, you will find links in this book to step-by-step online instructions, building plans, "how to" videos, and photographic slideshows depicting coop constructions and conversions. The others have pictures, descriptions, and hopefully will inspire you to go out and customize your own simple version of what you see. If you know how to cut wood with a handsaw and screw in a screw, I think you'll be just fine. These designs are about as stripped-down as any designs can get.

Just Say 'No' to Overpriced Coops

There are better alternatives, and I think you'll find a few of them in this book. If you can't afford an expensive chicken coop and aren't handy enough (or don't have time) to build a typical hen house from scratch, then welcome to the club. I hope this short book will give you some fun ideas that are practical enough to use. Most importantly, this book should help you think 'outside the coop' so you're not boxed in by expectations. As long as you include The Eight Things Every Chicken Coop Needs (covered in the book, along with 8 different coops), then you can call any contraption a coop and your chickens will be very happy to live there.

Hop on for the ride. It costs less than $4 and it might well save you $400.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Book--well worthwhile 29 juin 2013

For some time now, I have been thinking of taking on a few chickens. This book actually made me believe it would be both practical and possible. There is not much in the way of plans in this book, but plans are not part of the author's stated intention. What the book does contain, instead, is a wide variety of photos and a wide variety of suggestions as to what one might use to make a chicken coop, as well as useful links to places on the net where one might find plans.

Yup...I would recommend this. Perhaps it is especially valuable to me, as a novice. But I would think anyone in search of a new way to house chickens and let them run might well find useful ideas here.

I currently raise a few laying hens and am contemplating adding meat chickens, so will need another chicken house. This book has some very good ideas. Think outside the box! If you are looking for cheaper alternatives for housing chickens, or are not a very good carpenter (me) this book is for you. I enjoyed reading this book and came away with a double hand full of great ideas.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Recommended for those ready to buy a premanufactured chicken coop ! 13 novembre 2014
Par robbie douglas - Publié sur Amazon.com

simple read and some good ideas. After reading this book, it really got my mind opened to think about alternative methods for constructing my coop that has yet to be built. Now every time I drive into town, after reading this book, I observe things in a different way - such as, 'I wonder if that could be transformed into a chicken coop', or ' look at all the scrap wood being tossed out over there, I bet I could build the outdoor chicken run with that lumber' .
before reading this, I was more of a buy a pre-manufactured coop, spend lots of cash, or, if I am going to build it myself, go drop a load of cash on all new materials,- kind of guy.

I am really glad I chose to read R.J.'s series of books, this one in particular. he obviously has had a great deal of hands on experiencing with a keen sense of observation.

A well written book illustrated with many excellent photos. Having lots of experience raising chickens in a cold northern climate, some of the coop ideas just made me smile. They certainly might work in milder climates. A tip on obtaining chickens: for years we watched our local Pennysavsr for free chickens or some very reasonably priced because the owners just wanted to get rid of them. Some were older, but still good layers. We ran a retirement home for chickens. :0) We were able to let them free range part of the day after they had laid their eggs in the nests so they weren't laid hither and yon. Passerbys loved to see our chickens about the yard. I recommend this book as it includes lots of information about raising chickens.

Encouraging --- Can do book. I love how he presents all kinds of ways to build a chicken coop - no holds barred. And all the links are good as well. It's nice to read something that doesn't say this is the way is must be done but instead says, these are the ELEMENTS that must be incorporated into your chicken coop for it to be effective. Different styles are discussed and illustrated. The only thing I wish he could have said more about is chicken coops adapted for winter.
