Product description

A small but functional chicken coop can be an excellent option for aspiring chicken growers looking for a perfect hen home. This walk-in coop with a run is designed to accommodate up to 6 chickens without feeling crowded, making it great for both beginners and homeowners looking to produce their eggs.

The coop has a roomy wire-meshed aviary for your girls to explore during the day, and a ladder leads to the hutch, where they can take refuge at night. There are enough perches lining the hutch interior, where your birds can rest and roost at night.

The coop’s framework utilizes pressure-treated lumber and top-grade wire mesh for longevity and performance. The entire structure is set on a reinforced foundation, so you can expect it to last years, if not decades.

You can easily walk through the 5-feet tall door to clean the aviary. Moreover, the hutch is fitted with a 3′ 1¼″ door, and a tray accessible from the coop’s back is installed to ease cleaning.

For your laying chicken, there is a sizable nesting box with a door mounted on its side to allow for easy egg harvesting. A window is also installed to encourage your birds to lay eggs consistently.

With its lean-to roof, this chicken coop will seamlessly blend with other structures on your property. You can even paint the wooden components to add interest and reduce the effect of the elements on the wood, ultimately increasing the coop’s lifespan.
