Product description

A small yet functional chicken coop in your backyard can provide a home to your chickens while adding interest to your property. 

Without taking a lot of your backyard space, this 5 x 6 chicken coop is designed to hold up to 10 chickens, making it an ideal choice for hobbyists looking to raise a small flock or those with a small yard. The interior is fitted with luxurious perches for your chickens to roost and rest, and a spacious nesting box protrudes from the coop for convenience when harvesting eggs.

The overall design includes two windows for proper ventilation and lighting, which helps keep your birds comfortable and encourages them to produce eggs consistently. Proper ventilation can go a long way to keeping your chickens from overheating and other diseases that may result from dampness.

For people living in low-lying areas, this coop is several inches off the ground, which helps prevent floods and other water damage. And as with other wooden structures, you can finish it to your liking or paint it to match your garden storage shed and other outbuildings.
