Product description

A hen house for those living in areas with a lot of predators or just looking to provide a more protective environment for their birds, this 8×16 chicken coop is made with strong wood to keep it sturdy and panels for durability and performance. The coop’s framework utilizes pressure-treated lumber, and the structure stands on a reinforced platform, which helps keep predators away.

With 128 square feet of floor space, the coop is large enough to accommodate 20 chickens while providing the space they roam, feed, rest, and roost. This space has a minor subdivision along its length to give a 7′ 11½” long chicken run and an 8′ 11¼ ” long hutch. Inside the hutch are well-organized and comfortable perches to suit your flock’s roosting and perching nature.

Two doors, one on the left and another to the right, make it easy to access the coop’s inside, especially when cleaning, feeding, or tending to the birds. These doors are large enough for even an adult to walk in.

Egg harvesting is easier thanks to the horizontal door installed to the front of the protruding nesting box.

A window just slightly above the nesting box helps bring in light to keep your birds active and provide them with the light they need to maintain peak egg production.

With its gable-style roof, this chicken coop is sure to seamlessly integrate with other structures on your property.
