Product description

For bird lovers looking to add a modern and cool-looking structure right to their backyard, this coop is a great choice. Although it looks compact, it is designed to house up to 12 chickens.

This 17 x 6 chicken coop offers up to 102 square feet of wire-meshed space for your chickens to roam, 18 square feet of room for roosting, and a protruding nesting box. It is spacious enough with a full-sized door for adults to walk in for hassle-free cleaning. The nesting box has an access door on top for easy egg harvesting and cleaning. You will also have an easy time tending to hatchlings. 

The coop is made using pressure-treated lumber and set on a solid cement platform to withstand the test of time. Its overall sturdy construction ensures durability while protecting your birds from predators. 

Your chickens will also benefit from this coop’s consistent ventilation. Proper ventilation is key to keeping your chickens comfortable and can go a long way to save them from disease. 

Because the coop is majorly made of wood, you can finish it to your liking or paint it to match other outbuildings.
