Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you have chickens and looking for making a chicken coop plans? I also looked around the internet when I first wanted to build my own chicken coop. I didn't have the money to go out and buy a fancy pre-built coop so I searched around and found out I could actually build one myself. I did question myself if I was able to do this since I was a newbie but I'm glad I took the challenge and went through with it. Its wasn't so hard to build the coop after all. Before you go out and buy a chicken coop plan, I want to do my best to tell you what you should look for within a plan and what has worked wonders for me.

Making a Chicken Coop Plans - Price and Quality

When searching around chicken coop blueprints, I usually to look for the cheapest one that offers the best quality. If you really search for it, you'll find high quality coop guides that are little golden nuggets and easy on the wallet. So what should you look for in a high quality chicken coop guide?

First, does it have any bonuses that can help you out. I often time find ones that offer videos of how to set up coops and some great content on how to get your chickens to lay the most eggs. These things to me equal high quality and 9 times out of 10 I won't buy a coop plan unless they contain it. There is that rare instance when I really want a certain design and just go ahead and buy it. So no, it not necessary for you to buy coop plans that only contain bonus, I just like to get the most bang for my buck.

Making a Chicken Coop Plans - Multiple Plans and Coop Sizes

Another thing I try to look for in chicken coop blueprints is if they offer multiple plans for different size coops. What if I decided I want more chickens and need a bigger coop, having a guide that offers more than one coop size would save me money on the long run. So try to get a chicken coop guide that offer you more than one chicken coop plan for different sizing plans.

Making a Chicken Coop Plans - Customer Service

One of the last things I look for is, how well the customer service is from the place I purchase my plan from. If I have questions, I want them answered, so here is a test i do before I buy anything online. I will email them and give them 2 - 3 business days to reply back, if I don't get an answer, I'm not going to buy it. Bad customer service is something you don't wont when doing something new. So test them out before you buy anything.

Well these are the steps I take when I buy my making a chicken coop plans and I hope they will help you out. The chicken coop guides I buy contain fit all the requirements above and I usually don't buy them if they don't. Well good luck and happy chicken raising.
