A handy waist-height door for collecting eggs.
Gathering your freshly laid eggs couldn't be any easier. Just flip the latch and reach right in!
Next box shutters prevent broodiness.
Hens that can access their nest box 24/7 are more likely to go broody. The Boughton 902a has shutters you can close at night to keep your girls out of the nest.
The whole side panel comes off with a lift-- so you can change bedding materials, let your girls roam the yard, etc.
Designed to keep predators out.
Wire mesh sides inside the run provide protection, and the ladder closes for extra protection whenever you need it. (We recommend you lay down hardware cloth or chicken wire underneath for
additional protection, both for your birds and your grass!)
Built-in run gives you flexibility to let "the girls" out -- or not.
Chickens are happiest and healthiest when they get to range freely around the yard, but if you can't let them out (when you're on vacation, for instance), they won't be "cooped up" inside
all day - they'll have plenty to entertain themselves with inside the run!
At only 6' long by 4.5' wide by 4' tall, the Boughton 902a has the smallest footprint of any six-chicken coop we've seen!
