Product description

Are you planning to get into the chicken rearing hobby? Here is a coop for beginner chicken growers who want to start with a flock of not more than eight chickens. 

This 4 x 8 chicken coop lives to its name with enough free space for your birds to roam free. It has a wire-meshed aviary that offers up to 32 square feet of free space for your chickens to explore and an off-the-ground coop that offers 6 square feet for nesting and roosting. The nesting box is mounted on the side and fitted with a lid for convenience when collecting eggs and cleaning.

There is a window conveniently placed to allow enough light inside while stimulating your chickens to lay eggs consistently. Proper ventilation has also been ensured to keep the chickens comfortable year-round. 

For those living in areas with harsh climates, the framework of this coop utilizes pressure-treated lumber that will stand to the test of time. The predator-proof design also helps keep snakes, dogs, and other predators from bothering your chickens. 

Since the coop is spacious with large access, you will have an easy time cleaning it and supplying your chooks with whatever they need.
