Inspired by J.R.R. Tolkein's The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings
What a beautiful domicile for your chickenses! They'll be the envy of The Shire--and your
neighborhood--when you move them into their very own Hobbit Hole. This charming coop is
not just a fantastic architectural feature to add to your property, it will provide excellent,
comfortable shelter to your flock for years to come. Evoking imagery from Tolkien's Middle
Earth, the round door and windows and the domed roof on the front of the coop are
enchantingly attractive, and the rear rectangular door and roof provide easy access for
Three sizes to accommodate up to fifteen birds
This coop comes in three different sizes, to accommodate anywhere from five to fifteen
birds. This is the medium coop and comes standard with four, seven-inch round windows.
Your birds will enjoy the sunshine and cross-breezes afforded by the front and rear
placement of these windows, which are lined with half-inch hardware cloth to provide protection
Built with the strength of Ents and Dwarves
The walls are constructed of sturdy pine, and as a standard, come unpainted/untreated.
However, you have a variety of color combinations from which to choose, if you'd like to
upgrade and have our manufacturer paint the exterior siding and trim(see chart of available colors at right, below). The roof material is sturdy asphalt shingless; you can also
upgrade to the rustic and durable live edge cedar shingles, which includes a continuous
layer of impermeable ice and water shield under the cedar roofing. A hidden roof ridge vent
insures circulation and improves air quality, while also helping to regulate the coop
temperature and humidity levels.
The wisdom of wizards is evident in the use of AdvanTech material for the main
floor as well as the floor and roof of the nest boxes, which provides strength,
rigidity, and superior moisture resistance. Keeping your coop dry is an
important aspect of a healthy flock, and so this is an especially advantageous
material in that regard! There are two flooring upgrade options available,
the first of which is a lift-out linoleum insert to make waste cleanup an easy
task--simply lift and fold up the insert and bring it out of the rear door.
There is also a the option of a lift-out linoleum
insert for easy of cleanup. Finally, if you live in a cold area, you may wish to
consider upgrading to the 1" R-5 foam (installed underneath the AdvanTech
flooring)for better insulation.
No dangerous journey or defeat of Orcs required
Collecting eggs is as easy as convincing Hobbits to partake in Second Breakfast, with
convenient outdoor access via the external hinged lid of the next box. These latch via
hook and eye to provide security against invaders like raccoons--if a group of Oliphaunt
war-beasts shows up, however, you may wish to call upon your contacts within the Rohirrim
for further assistance. Nest boxes are constructed of pine with an AdvanTech top and
bottom. An appropriate number of nest boxes is built into each size model--with the small
and medium versions having the nest boxes installed on the rear wall, and side wall
installations for the large model.
