Add On Runs
The Bungalow is modular--meaning you can opt to use it in a standalone fashion, or you can add up to four, 1/2" galvanized hardware cloth-covered runs that attach to the front or back of the coop, and
provide additional daytime living space. The wooden roof of the optional runs will allow your birds to get out and stretch their wings even in the snow and rain!
Keep in mind this coop, like every coop we sell at
My Pet Chicken, is NOT intended for full-time confinement. The run is convenient when you
can't let your flock roam freely, but make sure your flock has several hours per day outside.
If you choose to add on a run (or two or three!), you can still access the interior coop doors easily.
Optional Solar-Powered Automatic Door
For those of you who want to free range your birds for part of the day, we have an Automatic Solar Door
that's been designed just for the Bungalow Coop! It attaches to the side of the coop that has the swing-open door (versus the slide-open door). There are too many features to list here -- check it out for yourself
Add an Extra Nest Box!
An extra nest box is a great idea if you want to fit the maximum number of chickens in your Bungalow Chicken Coop! If you have breeds that tend to broodiness (and hog their nest endlessly), or if you plan to allow a hen to hatch out some chicks in your Bungalow, the extra space will come in handy. Same if you're using this as a rabbit hutch! Bunnies will enjoy having the extra space to hop around in.
Your birds will have plenty of space to relax on two, rounded-edge roosts, and your job of keeping the
coop clean will be made easier with the 2.5" deep metal-lined droppings pan that spans the
floor of the house. Line it with soft wood shavings, like pine (available at your local farm
supply store) and simply slide out the pan and compost their bedding & it makes for
fertile garden soil once it's thoroughly "cooked".
The coop is easily accessed by two doors on each end of the building, both with dual
latches for extra security. The unique front and rear sliding vents provide for
comfortable breezes during warm weather, and keeping the air fresh inside of the coop.
These are covered in 1/2" x 1/2" galvanized hardware cloth to help prevent access by predators.
Fresh, Delicious Eggs
You won't be able to go back to store-bought eggs once you've tasted the fresh supply
from your own flock! These will be easy to gather from the nest boxes by lifting the
nest box lid and reaching inside to fill up your egg basket. This will also make your
job easier when it comes time to clean the nest boxes and replace their bedding material
within. The nest box door features three hinges and a two strong latches to help prevent access by
critters who would feast on your eggs (and chickens)!
Two latches on access points provide extra protection. Note the
dual latches on the slide-out droppings tray, to keep raccoons from pulling it
out and reaching in for your flock's feet. Half-inch galvanized hardware cloth
lines the run and will help keep out most determined predators. Just close the doors
from the coop to the run at dusk to prevent burrowing predators from gaining
access. Or, secure your own hardware cloth to the bottom so you don't have to
worry about closing the door at night!
Protect Your Coop Purchase...
...With a yearly stain or seal. The natural wood material will break down over time. If you do not,
you can realistically expect four to six years' use out of this coop. If you keep it in good shape
by sealing it annually, you'll have it for many years to come!

Damages, Returns & Cancellations
If your coop has been significantly damaged in shipment, please refuse the package so we may expedite sending you a new one. If you are unable to do so, report the damages to us within 48 hours, and send pictures so we can best determine the next steps to be taken. Photos help us determine which pieces are damaged. Please be aware that superficial scratches and dings may occur in the shipping process, and that we will replace or refund you for any broken, missing, or damaged pieces.
If you cancel your order before the coop leaves our warehouse, we'll refund you all but a $5 cancellation fee. If you'd like to cancel your order after it has left the warehouse, or return it once it has arrived to you, you'll be responsible for return shipping as well as a 15% restocking fee that will be withheld from the refund. Please note, once you have assembled your coop it cannot be returned.
All you need is a screwdriver! All the hardware is included, and most holes are pre-drilled. With two people, allow
approximately a half hour; with just one, allow 45 minutes. The optional run should take only 10-15 minutes apiece.
Do not forget to add a predator-proof latch to the front sliding door if you do not plan to attach the optional run.
Once you construct the coop, we recommend you let it "air out" for a week before moving your chickens in.
The non-toxic wood stain emits a strong odor that disappears over time.
