Q: What do I do if I can't locate the H-bar molding?
A: You can substitute with a 2" x 2" or 2" x 4" wood strip.
What do I do if I can't find part F (metal stucco mold) used for the bottom strip?
A: You can substitute with a small wood finish strip or screw wire securely at the bottom of the coop.
Will the PVC hoops hold up in the sun or cold northern country?
A: Yes, we have not had any problems. You can also use an electrical conduit if you wish.
Will the Stagecoach hold up in high winds?
A: It is extremely well designed for this problem in most parts of the country.
Can I enlarge the Stagecoach to hold more chickens?
A: Yes, you may need additional bracing, hoops, etc. You will need to apply the basic design and build accordingly.
What do I do if the Stagecoach doesn't look large enough to hold the number of hens as specified?
A: You will need to move the Stagecoach daily for fresh new ground and grass to forage and till. We also recommend that you free-range your flock outside the Stagecoach if possible. This will allow you to house the maximum number. If this is not possible, we recommend that you cut back your flock by about 30%.
How much will the materials cost?
A: That depends on the size and additional features you intend to implement. The total cost could range from $575 to $825.
