Product description

Are you a passionate bird lover looking for a chicken coop to kickstart the chicken-rearing hobby? This 6 x 8 walk-in chicken house might be ideal for you. Even with its compact design, great attention to detail has been delicately intertwined into every aspect to ensure a safe and healthy environment for 20-24 birds.

The coop’s framework utilises pressure-treated lumber, and the entire structure is set on a reinforced concrete foundation, which helps ensure performance and longevity while keeping predators away. Regarding access, the coop is fitted with a standard 6-feet door for easy access, which makes cleaning and egg harvesting hassle-free. Thanks to the included ramp, your chickens will also easily walk in and out of the coop.

Inside the coop, you will find sturdy roosts for your chickens to perch and sleep in and nesting boxes enough for the flock. There are also large trays that slide out, which makes daily cleanup super easy.

The design of this coop includes four 1′8″ x 1′8″ windows that keep the interior illuminated, so it doesn’t feel cramped and provides the light your girls need for peak egg production.

For those concerned about aesthetics, this chicken house is majorly wooden, and you can paint it to match other outdoor structures. Its gable roof also adds to its classic look.
