Carolina Coops has some gorgeous chicken coops

We got our chicken coop about 5 years ago from Carolina Coops but are kind of wishing we had waited because their chicken coops have gotten so much fancier and beautiful over the past few years.

We would have considered their chicken coop kit or prefabricated coops, it looks like it would be easy to assemble that ourselves. The biggest issue with building a chicken coop to us is all the measuring and cutting of lumber, but Carolina Coops provides pre-cut and pre-drilled lumber and instructions. They even include some of the necessary tools to assemble it.

However, it is the options they have available on their custom chicken coops that are making us think we need to upgrade our chicken coop. Some of the interesting options look like the window sliders, screened hen house doors, solar package, wifi controls for doors and lights and the deep litter bed.

For anyone who wants an awesome looking chicken coop, custom built or from a kit, we highly recommend Carolina Coops. They also offer delivery and shipping options, so even if you don’t live near their shop, you can get one of their coops at your home.

  • It's been 5 weeks since I've seen any eggs, now chickens pooping in nestboxes. Could they be freaked out by construction at my neighbors? #

Twitter “Weekly” Updates for 2010-09-03

  • Two of the #chickens still broody. The past 3 nights I've lifted them out of the nestbox to put them up on the perch. They are quite ornery. #
  • From the blog: Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-08-27: #FF @heather_perara @Mom2Punkadus @henthusiasts @We… http://bit.ly/dkyiqs #chickens #
  • Once again, 1 egg yesterday. After dark, I've been taking the 2 broody #chickens out of their nestbox and putting them on their perch. #
  • @jackie_blkwell I really can't block the nest boxes – I have 2 other chickens, 1 of which is laying. And not ready to deal with chicks yet. in reply to jackie_blkwell #
  • Chickens laid 9 eggs this week after 18 the week before. I guess with half of them gone broody, that was to be expected. #
  • This letter writer has some good points, but I mostly disagree http://t.co/yzQnAEy #chickens #
  • 7th straight day of just 1 egg. My egg reserves are down to 2, the lowest it's been in about 3 weeks. #
  • @Mom2Punkadus I've got 2 broodies, and I'm not sure if both of the other 2 are laying, or just 1. It's hard to tell those 2 apart. in reply to Mom2Punkadus #
  • @mendiola32 As recently as less than 2 weeks ago I got 3 eggs in 5 out of 6 days from my 4 hens. in reply to mendiola32 #
  • @mendiola32 Two of them have gone broody, they are spending the whole day in the nestbox. Apparently the Brahma breed can get rather broody. in reply to mendiola32 #

  • Couple of broody hens… #chickens http://twitpic.com/2h7t1a #
  • Total of 18 eggs last week, up from 15 last week and 6 the week before. #chickens #
  • Two of my pullets (now 5 weeks old) are sitting in a nest box together, even though it is after dark and there are no eggs under them. #
  • Oops, realized I wrote "5 weeks old", but meant "5 months old". It would be pretty amazing if they were laying at 5 weeks! #
  • @jackie_blkwell Thanks for the advice! I moved them up to the roosting pole. They weren't too cranky about it. in reply to jackie_blkwell #
  • @WendyENThomas I made a quiche last week with ham & mozzarella, and will probably try the same recipe using bacon instead of ham this week. in reply to WendyENThomas #
  • Bacon mozzarella quiche made with 6 bantam eggs! #chickens http://twitpic.com/2hky5u #
  • Wow, over 300 followers. Thanks everyone! #
  • Kind of disappointed, only 1 egg today, first 1-egg day in over a week. The chickens are spending a lot of time in the nest boxes though. #
  • Another 1-egg day. Only 6 eggs in the past 4 days (2 in the past 2) after getting 11 in a 4-day span last week. Should I be concerned? #
  • .@robynski I looked all over the coop, and did not find any eggs. This week, 2 of the chickens are spending almost all day in the nestboxes. #
  • @robynski Thanks for the tip and the compliment. I'll keep looking for those eggs. in reply to robynski #
  • Vet's view: Backyard chickens are fun, and lay the best eggs http://usat.me/39843334 #
