If you are looking for coops, I would highly reccommend getting in contact with Luke at "All Cooped Up". He is such a nice guy and will be willing to help you with whatever you need. Luke is a friend of mine so if you would like, I could pass your email along to him and he could get in touch with you. Just let me know.
Once you get your new coop, come visit us at the Wicked Chicken Auction. If you are not familiar with the breeds and such, we will be glad to help you! Our auction is every Sunday at 2:00pm. We allow all people attending the auction to view all of the animals being sold from 1:00pm-2:00pm. Come find me when you get to the auction and I can show you around and help you find what you are looking for.
If you ever have any questions about chickens, nutrition, health, etc. please feel free to send us an email and we will be glad to help you in any way we can.
Good Luck:)

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!
