Hi Amanda -

I recommend All Cooped Up in Knightdale.  I haven't ordered from them yet but had a nice long convo with the guy (I think his name was Toby, but am not sure) late last summer.  I think they have very good coops for very reasonable prices.  They have some standard designs that you can customize a little here and there to meet your needs.  When we're ready to order ours, we'll be using them.

Hi Everyone! I have been thinking about keeping hens for awhile but was finally given the ok by my HOA. :) I missed the 101 meetings in the fall. I've been educating myself on BYC and also thanks to wonderful friends with lots of experience. Wanted to check here to see if anyone recommends an additional sources of info to get off on the right foot. 

We are also not a DIY family, nor do we have the time to devote to constructing a coop, so we're going to be buying one. There are lots of folks on Craigslist, and of course Carolina Coops. Does anyone recommend a particular person/company to make it? We are in South Durham in a subdivision with a moderate sized backyard, and I'm thinking we'll keep maybe 6 birds in an enclosed run.

Thanks for all your help in advance!
