Most Helpful Customer Reviews

First off the book is well written and has nice photos. However, the "reinvented" coops are "boutique" coop. The designs are all pretty small and designed for warm weather climates (no snow). Thus is you live in a city and in California it is great, but if you live in snow country these designs will not work.
Should be titled California Coops for Big Spenders. Even the pallet coop had an enormous list of new & expensive materials. The book is absolutely beautiful, smart, well written & photographed. We enjoyed reading it but my husband & I both agree - this book was not helpful to us at all. We have a BUDGET. I give the authors props for creativity but these designs are far too costly to be practical. The authors themselves admit to not being able to market their coops because of the high costs. The coops are all designed for the temperate Cali weather. So if you have cold winters or hot summers (hello, Georgia) all the coops in this book will require major modifications. Even as a new chicken keeper, I can see flaws in these designs where creativity seems to be the focus instead of practicality. Oh, well, it will make a good coffee table book. Good for conversation....only.
I've been pouring over chicken coop design books for the last couple of months, and not to be rude to other coop design authors, but this book is the only one that I have found which has many great designs worthy to grace the pages of of Dwell and Sunset. Most other chicken coop design books offer basic plans that are adequate to place in a far corner of one's property. Unfortunately, since I have an urban lot (less than 5000 square feet), the farthest corner of my property is right under my nose. I want to look out at something that is witty and visually appealing, and this is the only coop book that I have found to offer more than a few designs that will do that. I find this book to be inspiring, ingenious and hip. The only hard part is to decide which model to choose.
