Product description

Without taking up much of your backyard space, this 4 x 8 chicken coop offers enough space for up to 8 chickens. Great attention to detail has been intertwined into every aspect to ensure it is very secure and remains comfortable for your birds year-round.

It is made of pressure-treated lumber and set on hunk or concrete and mortared brick footing for longevity and performance. The superior construction helps deter predators. 

Further, the coop is raised a few inches, which helps minimize attacks by crawling predators like snakes. Raising prevents floods and other damage, especially in areas with a lot of snowfall. 

The coop has a small door with a ramp for your chicken and a large door that offers you access to the house to clean and collect eggs. Two windows have been included to illuminate the interior and ensure your birds get plenty of light — Chickens need plenty of light to maintain high egg production. 

For those with pets, the space underneath the coop provides a perfect outdoor haven where your dog can relax, especially when the weather is too hot. 

You can paint the coop to improve its appearance or match it with other outbuildings.
