Product description

This walk-in coop is small enough to fit in virtually any backyard but big enough to accommodate up to 8 chickens without feeling cramped. It features a roomy chicken house and a nesting box for your laying chickens. The interior is assembled with sturdy roosting bars for your chicken to perch and rest. 

A window has been installed into the coop to make it feel spacious and ensure your chickens get enough light to maintain peak egg production. 

For people living in areas with plenty of predators, although this coop doesn’t have a protected aviary, it is engineered to be sturdy enough for any predator to break into it. It also stands tall off the ground to keep crawling predators, like snakes, at bay. 

The underneath space serves to provide ample space where your feathered friends and pets can relax and hide from the rain. Raising the coop also ensures that your chickens have a dry and comfortable home, even during floods.

Cleaning the coop and collecting freshly laid eggs is easy because you can walk into the coop. 

Of significance, this coop is best suited for chicken growers who can ensure their chickens remain safe during the day on their property, even without having a protected aviary.
