Product description

Even with the smallest backyard, you can give your chicken a safe space that they can call home and explore freely.

This 4×8 chicken coop is compact enough to fit in most spaces, making it a perfect solution to cage your flock if you lack a vast yard. Even with its small stature, it is big enough to accommodate up to 8 mature chickens and has everything they need to live happily and healthily.

This coop has a footprint of 32 square feet, with the floor being free space to roam. The hutch is raised 2 feet, ensuring your flock has enough space to explore during the day. A sturdy ladder leads to the sanctuary lined with perches for the birds to roost and rest at night or whenever they want to rest inside.

A 6-feet 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.

To ensure consistent egg production, 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.

A well-fitted gable roof caps this coop and gives your chicken adequate protection from rain and hot sun rays. Paint the sturdy wooden sides to enhance its durability and add interest.
