Product description

Designed to look like a backyard garden shed at first glance, this chicken house is suitable for passionate bird lovers who want to provide their flock with the utmost safety. The coop has a footprint of 96 square feet and houses everything you need to keep a flock of 20-24 birds. However, you will need an ample and safe backyard where your chickens can explore during the day.

Inside the coop are comfortable perches where your birds can roost and relax. There are also enough nesting boxes, so you don’t have to worry about some chickens missing a place to lay eggs, even when the entire flock is actively laying.

To ensure consistent egg production, this coop comes with four 1′8″ x 1′8″ windows that help keep the interior illuminated and provide optimal light hours. Usually, chicken needs about 14 hours to maintain peak egg production.

You can access the coop through the included 2′8″ x 6′ door, which is big enough for you to come with feeders and drinkers into place. There is also a ramp at the entrance, so your chickens can use either the large or the small low-lying door to come in and out. Easy access also makes cleaning and egg harvesting easier.

For homeowners keen on aesthetics, this chicken coop is wooden. You can paint or stain it to your liking to add interest to your property.
