The Front Yard Coop makes keeping your chickens more convenient, with
the automatic feeding and watering system. You can move through your
day with ease of mind, knowing that your birds have food and drink
available to them, even if you aren't there to provide it. The base
model provides mobility via a 52" long hand-towing dolly, so you can
move the coop around your yard to give the flock more variety in their
"salad bar" and prevent them from wearing down any particular area of
your lawn too quickly. And if you add the optional solar-powered
self-propulsion unit, the coop can move slowly around your yard on its
own, complete with a microprocessor and switches that allow it to
auto-reverse. Each model rides upon 14" wheels, and is easily pulled,
even by children!
Up to six birds can be housed in style in the 3' x 4' elevated coop,
featuring a convenient 22" x 36" slide-out tray for cleaning out the
used bedding, which is a great addition for your compost pile! The
standing seam galvanized 24 gauge steel roof is durable and
attractive, and you can choose from the range of Benjamin Moore paint
colors for the sturdy MDX coop wall exterior. Your birds exit out of
the coop via a 9" x 14.5" door designed just for them, and trot down
the 1' x 3' ramp into their contained yard (4' wide x 8' long x 51"
tall) where they can forage safe and sound from predators.
The 5" x 48" PVC "water chimney" system is a self-contained water
fountain – just drop your garden hose in and fill it up. It holds 2.5
gallons of fresh drinking water for your birds, which they drink using
a nozzle drip system – keeping your coop interior free from spills.
The drip nozzle is bright red, which attracts the birds, insuring that
they know how to stay hydrated! Lift the hinged 41" x 21.5" access
door to reach the galvanized steel feed hopper, pour in the feed, and
use the handle on the side of the hen house to manage the flow into .
Your birds are well protected in their yard by fencing with 1" grid
squares – so predators cannot reach in and grab them! Upgrade to the
electrified fence option (solar-powered) and the flock will have
additional protection in the way of an electrified perimeter wire that
runs around the bottom of the entire coop. The 28" x 39" pen door
gives you access to bring your hens out or to bring treats in to them.
Make sure your birds are safe at night by getting them inside of the
house and securing the door, and discourage predators with the
solar-powered electric fence. The .063 powder-coated tubular steel
frame provides a sturdy foundation that will also stand up to the
