Default Chicken Coops

The more and more I hear about chicken coops, the more interested I become in personal deployment. Whenever I Google "chicken coops", elaborate and fancy coops come up but when i look at dive videos it seems like the coops are simple rectangular prism structures. My main question is where in the world do people buy the coops to deploy, or would it be easier to make them? Any response would be appreciated.

P.S I have a "barge" to deploy them, I just do not have the supplies to deploy

Try Pensacola Reef Builders. They usually have some for sale, and can deploy them if need be.

I'm sure that they would charge a pretty steep price compared to buying them directly from chicken farmers or even making them yourself.

Search the forum for good info about the hazards of self-deploying.
I think there are licenses involved, that's part of the cost of the commercial guys.
Man, I'd love to have a GPS tracker on one of their boats for a few months.
Did I type that out loud?

There have been numerous people getting them from time to time. Ask reefbuilders and whoever else you can find. You may find some one who has them sitting around and needs to get rid of them. The old RFRA(Paul Redman) has gotten them. Emerald Coast reefbuilders in Destin, etc. You may find someone willing to split a trailer load.

To answer your question about what they actually are...
They are the transport coops used on flat beds to transport the chickens. Nothing fancy. Just heavy metal cages. Lots of wire shelving.

Here is what they look like new. Contact Candy @ Emerald Coast Reef Association http://www.ecreef.org/. She can help hook you up for deployment out of Destin. I think Candy is getting up a deployment later this year.
The CTC or chicken transport coops have to be cleaned, inspected, and two of them chained together to be legal. Expect to pay between $50 and $100 each for the used coops, depending where you buy them. Lots of regulations, but well worth the effort.
