Construction fairly light weight, but great price and value when purchased through Overstock.Read More
The coop is easy to assemble . The roosts will not stay up unless you add additional screws through the side ( 2 exact coops , both with the same problem) The supports for the roof also are not significant for the weight. The screws do not stay in, but it has enough weight that it won't blow off and is light enough to easily move to have excess to the entire inside . If you attach the lid supports and don't use them often it may be sufficient to just offer protection from blowing off . Over all good product. I needed something to house 6 chicks quick and this is perfect for that .Read More
I purchased one of these "coops" and then a second within a short period of time. The first one is being used to house some ducks (and sometimes my cat decides to take a nap inside too. The second is a rabbit hutch. I did place vinyl tiles on the floor to add to the durability of the floor and ease of cleaning. I use the nesting boxes to house the rabbits food and water so that it is easy to access from outside the enclosure (there is a run attached to the front). The quality is fine, I do like that the roof is in one piece so there are no leaks. It took about 30 minutes to put together. All of the hardware was included with one extra screw of each type necessary. The directions are not that great but it is easy to figure out.Read More
Build quality is not great. Added a threshold to the door so the ramp/door doesn't get clogged by bedding. Drilled some holes in the floor for drainage. But for the price, not a bad deal.Read More
This product came in two boxes. I put it together on my front porch, and moved it with just two people. It wasn't heavy at all. The only problem I had was the pre drilled holes were in the wrong places for the for the supports for the big roof, I just put the latches where they were suppose to be. The only problem is that the two roost perches inside wont stay where there suppose to be, but a couple of screws should solve that problem. I know my chickens like there new home.Read More
Got this chicken coop for my skinny 13 year old cat that has digestive problems and can no longer stay inside the house. My dilemma was that he's on the skinny side and gets cold easily. This product is the perfect compromise since I'm able to comfortably fit his over-sized pet bed, water, and food inside with room to spare. He's perfectly content with his new home and can come and go to do his business through the drop down door. It was really easy to put together in a couple of hours and it's made of good materials so I'm confident that it will stand up to the weather. I really love that the top opens up for easy access cleaning but be sure and lock the hinges before reaching inside -- the bruise on my upper arm is just now going away after three weeks.Read More
The coop arrived in a timely manner in two boxes. The pieces are big so the actual construction was very easy. All screw holes matched and there was no missing pieces. Once assembled (within an hour) I could see areas that I will need to waterproof like where the nest box joins the main coop at the hinge. Rain and snow will get into this area until I weather strip it. I am using it for four 3 month old pullets until they are old enough to join the main flock. I put there food and water in the nesting box area inside since they won't be using that for awhile. I may need to make some major improvements before our Colorado winters, but for the most part it will be perfect as a nursery for my younger birds or for raising chicks in the summer.Read More
Arrived quickly. Roof was damaged and no hardware was provided. We need to round screws, hinges, not sure what else. Very disappointing.Read More
The directions are terrible. It consists of one page of pictures with screw sizes . I am 5'3 and was able to set up in less than 1/2 hour after setting the pieces in the place. The screws went in quickly and all holes where aligned. The bottom doesn't appear too sturdy and I'll most likely reinforce it with exterior MDF or linoleum because this is a fairly thin material . The roosts are useless as they are and require they are either liquid nailed or screwed into place . They are set into 2 cut outs like a closet rod holder so move when the chickens get on it. Interior size is comfortable for 4 standard cochin chickens without them being crowded and could fit 2 others if they roost side by side. Doors opening on side is better for small chickens but the one on the front is larger and easily accommodates larger chicks. No warranty information can be found although supposedly there is a one year warranty . Hopefully I won't need it.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello RO, we are still researching this and should have the answer shortly.
Fit for dogs? I have two 50 lb. dogs, and was wondering if this would hold up to their weight. I could modify the door, and floor supports, but am not sure if it would be big enough. They cuddle, so maybe? Is the 59" measurement in the description referring to the height, or the width? It doesn't say. Thanks for the feedback!!
Hello tambamalita, I hope your day is going well. This is designed for chickens. I will leave a link for kennels. Thank you for shopping with us. http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=kennels&taxonomy=sto37&ralt=sto3,sto5,sto1&TID=AR:TRUE&searchtype=Header
Why did you choose this product?
Maximize coop space without all of the frills. Something that we could easily add and modify to our needs.
We have one hen who was pecked to the point she had to come inside the house to recouperate. She'll have her own area, plus her own wee coop, all to herself. This looks perfect. I read the reviews, hoping everything arrives in the boxes and that I am not disappointed.
