Product description

This compact chicken coop is perfect for small backyards. It is big enough to accommodate up to 8 mature chickens and has everything they need to live happily and healthily. The run, which extends underneath the hutch, offers 32 square feet of free space, providing plenty of space for your flock to explore during the day. A sturdy ladder in the run leads to the sanctuary, whose interior is lined with perches for the birds to roost and rest at night or whenever they want to rest inside.

A 6-foot tall door opens to the run, so you can easily walk in to clean and tend to your birds. There is also a smaller door that offers access to the hutch for convenient egg harvesting and hassle-free cleaning.

A small square window has been installed on the left side to ensure that egg-laying birds receive at least the required minimum of 14 hours of light. The window also allows you to keep an eye on your flock without necessarily opening the door.

Overall, this chicken coop is a great way to give your chickens a safe and comfortable home. It is easy to assemble and maintain, and it is sure to provide your flock with years of enjoyment.
