Product description

If you have a large yard where your flock can roam freely during the day, this coop might be ideal for you. Although it looks like a storage shed from the outside, it has everything your flock needs to stay happy and healthy.

The coops framework utilizes pressure-treated lumber, and the entire structure stands on a concrete foundation. This robustness helps ensure durability and performance for years while protecting against invasion by predators. Behind the door is an interior furnished with sturdy and comfortable perches as well as nesting boxes to make a perfect hen home.

When it comes to cleaning and harvesting eggs, the coop comes with a standard door for easy access when collecting eggs or tending to your birds. A window is included in the coop’s design to keep the interior illuminated and ensure your girls get the light they need to keep laying eggs.

Notably, this chicken coop is best suited for homeowners living in regions that are considered safe, especially during the day when your chickens are likely to be outside. Otherwise, no matter where you live, the unit is engineered to offer heightened security with its sturdy wooden sidings.

With its gable-style roof, the coop will seamlessly blend with other outbuildings. You can even paint it to match other structures.
