Product description

Thanks to its simple design, this coop is a great choice for those looking to start raising chickens. It is designed to look like a shed while providing a safe and healthy living environment for your feathered friends. 

The coop has a wire-meshed aviary and a sturdy ladder that leads your chickens up to the 32-square-feet sanctuary. Although it looks compact, it affords up to 96 square feet of space, where your chickens can roam freely. There are also two easily accessible nesting boxes secured to the sides of the cage. The nesting boxes have lids for easy egg harvesting. 

You can effortlessly walk into the coop to clean, feed your chickens, or just check on them. The access is wide enough to walk in easily, even when carrying supplies.

If you are looking to keep a flock of not more than 15 chickens, this coop is sure to serve you the best. It is set on a firm cement foundation for longevity and raised to reduce instances of floods and water damage.
