Building a Chicken Coop by Bill Keene

Product Type:





This guide will teach you the step-by-step process that you can use to build your own chicken coop in your backyard.


I know we have something in common; a food bill that keeps going up and a salary that stays the same. My solution was to raise chickens. The chickens turn inexpensive feed and insects into valuable eggs, and once a bird ceases to be productive it goes straight into the pot providing a source of meat for the family.

Add a rooster to make new chicks every year, and I have a self-sustaining source of food at little cost, I only needed to get two things to start: chickens, and a chicken coop!

Chicken Coops are Expensive

I discovered that the chickens are easy and cheap to acquire from any farm supply store come spring, but a good quality chicken coop can run from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars!

This is hardly a way to begin to save money, I thought of how many dozens of eggs the chickens would have to produce to make that money back for me.

I have never before raised chickens, and I have never built anything in my life, but I needed a chicken coop and I didn’t have the funds for a store bought one. A quick internet search brought me to Building a Chicken Coop by Bill Keene. Bill Keene promised to simplify the process of building a chicken coop from scratch and provide all the information I would need to successfully keep my own chickens.

Most importantly Mr. Keene provides a 60 day money back guarantee, which made the purchase risk free. Either it was everything he promised or I got my money back. He also includes lots of bonus material, I was really excited about bonus number four, a pdf file titled: The Cheapest Materials to Build Your Coop Out Of.

It all sounded ideal for my needs, and I ordered right away.

The information was simply explained and broken down into easy to remember segments that insured that every necessary step was followed. From buying the raw materials and assembly of the actual coop to the actual care of the chickens, I found the information to be invaluable. Bill Keene assumes you don’t have an expensive set of tools or lots of experience building things and reduces the process to the easiest way possible.

Building a Chicken Coop eBook

I know you hate the idea of keeping a book open and blueprints blowing around while you work as much as I do, so I was happy that all the info is in a downloaded file.

I was able to print up what I needed as I needed it, and view anything else from my tablet if it was more convenient. Having all the information in such an easy format to access was fantastic.

My Final Verdict

After I successfully completed building my coop and buying my chickens, I can honestly say that I received value for dollar. It would have taken me hours to find just a part of this information on my own. I doubt I could have produced a chicken coop as solidly built and practical without the guides I purchased.

Besides showing you the best and cheapest way to get started, Brian Keene provides important information about caring for my birds that I would otherwise have learned the hard way watching many of my chickens die through my ignorance.

If you’re determined to reap the benefits of keeping your own chickens Bill Keene’s Building a Chicken Coop is a must have resource that will save you time and money.
