Designed for up to 6 chickens
With plenty of roosting and nesting space, you can easily house up to six standard-size chickens, or eight to ten bantams, depending whether we're talkin' relatively large breeds like Cochins or eeny-weeny Seramas. This chicken coop, like every one we sell at My Pet Chicken, is NOT intended for full-time confinement. The optional run is convenient when you can't let your flock roam freely, but make sure your flock has several hours per day free-ranging or in a larger run.
Lots of Features
The coop interior includes two removable nest boxes, a removable food bin, and a removable water compartment. There are also two removable litter trays on the bottom of the coop. You may choose to leave the trays in when it is cold; when removed, waste can pass through the mesh design on the bottom of the coop.
Fully Adjustable Ventilation for Any Climate
The Ultimate Chicken Coop's ventilation is one of its best features. The side vent slots are fully adjustable, while the ridge vent on top provides constant ventilation. In this way you can easily achieve the ever-elusive ventilated but not drafty status in freezing temps or during inclement weather.
Meanwhile, in extreme heat the Ultimate Coop does equally well: adjust the side vents so they're fully open, and remove the litter trays to reveal the open mesh design of the coop floor, for ventilation from above, below and on the sides.
A+ in Cleaning
Plastic and fiberglass coops are unquestionably the easiest to clean, and this model is no exception. Just lift up the top half of the coop, remove all of the interior parts, add a little soap and hose it all down! You can use a soft brush or sponge if necessary. The coop's nonporous plastic construction makes it bacteria-resistant, too.
Protection Against Predators
The coop's heavy construction and ultra heavy-duty steel latches will keep your chickens safe from predators. We do recommend that you add 1/2" wire to the footprint of your optional 'coop stand and run' to keep burrowing predators from getting inside your run area, and wrapping it up the side a couple of inches to secure the run at the joint of the run pieces. Just fold the wire up and over the sides of the steel stand and run, and secure it with zipties or hog ties. The wire stand and run are made of strong steel so they will support this extra safety measure.
Shipping & Assembly
Assembly is easy. All you need is a standard 3/8 and 5/16 wrench or socket tool. Your coop comes with a beautiful, full color assembly guide. For two adults, expect completion to take an hour or so. Complete assembly instructions
Coops are shipped on a pallet that measures 60" x 45". Typically two people can lift it off the delivery truck.
The Ultimate Coop and Stand are expected to arrive within 2-3 weeks after ordering. The run will ship separately at the beginning of August. You will be responsible for helping the driver unload boxes from the truck--lift-gate service is not included in the price. If you require a lift-gate, please note there is an additional fee and you may select it from the drop down menu. (Free shipping applies to the 48 contiguous states. Coops may be shipped to Hawaii and Alaska for an additional fee--just let us know if you're looking for a quote.)
