Product description

This compact chicken coop is perfect for beginner chicken keepers or hobbyists who don’t have a lot of space. Despite its small footprint, it affords a 2 x 4 run, which can accommodate a flock of up to 6 chickens. The run is secured using wire mesh, giving your chickens a safe area to explore during the day. 

The seemingly small hutch is furnished with perches, offering a place for your chickens to roost and rest at night. There is also a nesting box mounted to the exterior with two compartments, just enough for the flock. Interestingly, you can collect eggs from outside.

The two doors — one to the aviary and the other to the hutch — make cleaning and tending to your birds easy. A droppings tray makes daily cleanup even much easier. 

The hutch is designed to be off the ground, which keeps the chickens dry and minimizes the chances of flood and water damage. This makes it ideal for hobbyists who live in an area that receives heavy downpours occasionally. The extended eaves allow rainwater to fall away from the hutch, ensuring your chickens stay dry and comfortable.

Building your coop with robust wood will extend its lifespan. You can even stain or paint the coop to enhance its appearance.
