These are Large Snap Lock Plastic Coops. Just under $700 for the large model. They are super easy to assemble, lightweight & portable & relatively easy to clean with removable trays. With three adjustable height roost bars they house 8-12 chickens or more bantams. These stay nice & cozy in the winter but can be hot during the summer if they are maxed out with chickens. They should be kept under shade. They do not come with the platforms they are sitting on in these pictures, nor the pvc/tarp run that I put together to house them in.
This is a Brinsea Churchill coop. Very decorative, around $700. Not practical for more than 3 chickens or 5 bantams. None of my chickens choose to roost in this coop but many of them enjoy it for egg laying as it is in a nice shady location. Because of its material it will last a long time & is pretty easy to clean. It wasn't anywhere as easy to assemble as the Large Plastic Snap Lock coops.
This is a custom built coop, 4 ft x 8 ft, built by Carlos of Moreno Valley. He is available to build coops, dog houses & other wood designs in the Inland Empire area as well as deliver them. This was my design which was modified from a Santan Valley Coops design. Carlos can be reached at 951-251-9617

This is a do it yourself run with S40 PVC pipe, screws to hold the fittings together. It got pretty beat up in the strong Santa Ana winds as the tarp was used as a sail so it was moved behind a tree which has worked out pretty well. I have learned that cable ties break over time & using galvanized bendable wire to attache the poultry fencing to the pvc pipe works well although it takes much longer than cable ties. I also use screws & thru the pvc & fittings to hold it together (I have fixed the broken spots since this picture was taken).
