Chicken Coop Items 

If you have been to any of the local farm and ranch stores lately you have probably noticed it’s chick time again! Backyard chicken coops are becoming increasingly popular and this time of year we always have quite a few customers flocking in (excuse the pun) looking for chicken coop items. This year we have practically everything you need to make a chicken coop on the cheap cheap (hahaha)! We still have a few shipping containers left from last year that make great chicken coops and are already built, you just have to have a little creativity and decorative touches. We also have cedar vents for decorative ventilation. We have a pallet of pine 2″ x 2″ spindles that work great for building roosts. And we have a variety of small windows and glass units that can be stopped in to add some daylight (it is recommended you install chicken coop windows on the south facing side so your chickens get sunlight all day long). Below are some pictures of the items we have in stock as well as some finished product ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Happy Building!
