What size of coop are you looking for? Chicken tractor size or walk in size?

Don't want a tractor type.   Can be 4x4 onlegs, something easy to clean out.   Walk in type would be great, but probably too expensive?   Just must be warm enough to winter birds.  =)

Re: Wanted Small Warm Coop for Bantams. Not too expensive please.

How many birds do you have? What is your budget.
Does it have to be new?

bcboy   Thanks so much for the link, just kind of out of my budget right now.  Darn.     Could actually use something smaller to keep the bantams warm in the winter.    But "must" be easy to clean out.  Not into

standing on my head anymore.  Getting too old for that. :oops:   Doesn't have to be new, but not junk.  e-mailed Jonny, but haven't heard from him.

Hey, Sorry I just saw this post today.

lady leghorn shoot me a PM and I can see what I can do to help you out =)

Re: Wanted Small Warm Coop for Bantams. Not too expensive please.

Nice cooperation, I love It! I hope you are able to find something suitable lady leghorn. I almost considered buying a children's playhouse that I saw at Costco the other day, it is quite pretty and could easily be 'adjusted' to a chicken coop. It  was under $300 but home made ones always seem better quality to me. I can't wait to see what you end up with.  :thumbsup:

If Jonny doesn't have something for you let me know.  I have an idea.  Doesn't require much $ but does need a little time and effort.

Re: Wanted Small Warm Coop for Bantams. Not too expensive please.

Just in case the message didn't go through I thought I would post it here as well.

I have been searching high and low for some pics of the coops I have and I have found one that is more or less what you are after. This one however is a walk in and is over 6ft tall by 8 ft long, the coop part itself is 4x4x4. But it showcases what I can do. hope these pics work for you.

This was a custom coop built to order I had made for a wonderful lady new to chickens last year.

Showing the whole coop

These are swinging doors that open double wide to make it easy to clean.

This shows the egg collection door, to get quick access to eggs.

Here are some interior pics as it was being built.

I wasn't planning on building coops this year, but at the same time I truly enjoy creating coops, for me it's a great way to unwind.

Re: Wanted Small Warm Coop for Bantams. Not too expensive please.

Here is another coop I made, and sold at the CHB Sale last year! This one like the one above is also a mobile coop, but can be made stationary, which is cheaper.

https://scontent-b-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/t1.0-9/945163_602310773112673_1052756921_n.jpg

This one is a scaled down version, more of a DEMO coop I made to haul around to shows, displays etc.
