5.0 out of 5 stars This book is extremely helpful for a newbie coop builder like me, October 3, 2010
This review is from: Building Chicken Coops For Dummies (Paperback)
I found this book to be extremely helpful!

I have scoured the internet and all the chicken books I could find, looking for a book that told me HOW to build a chicken coop. Finally, I found it! I currently have chickens and a small coop. But I want to build a larger, walk in coop. I checked into the costs to have someone build it for me and was shocked! How hard could it be right? Well, armed with this book, you will be well on your way.

It gives you details on how to build everything from a chicken tractor to an A-frame to a walk in coop like I wanted. It offers all the details for the important components of a coop: roosts, nesting boxes, etc. And walks you through important considerations like: What would make the coop easier for you? What about electricity? Water? Location? All the important aspects we need to think about before making that first lumber cut.

Now, I see a few people felt the book had too much carpentry info. Well I disagree. That is preciously what I love about this book! Remember, it is a book for "Dummies" and that means it covers all the BASICS! Being a novice builder myself, I am happy that this book not only tells me what materials I need, why I need them, how they should be used, but it also tells me exactly HOW TO build the coop. And that for me is golden!

Building Chicken Coops for Dummies is a great book for anyone thinking of constructing a home for their flock. It is thorough, well written and provides the confidence to tackle this project on your own. I highly recommend it.
