It's been your dream for some time now to keep a few hens in your backyard,
but you're concerned about aesthetics. You have that fussy neighbor who brings
out a ruler to measure your lawn on a regular basis and don't necessarily
want to draw their attention to the presence of a small chicken flock. So
what's your answer? This coop may just be it!
Cleverly designed, it resembles one of the kid's playhouses you often see in
backyards, and as such is quite inconspicuous. But make no mistake -- this coop
means business, not child's play! It is constructed from a heavy duty double-walled
Polyethylene that withstands impact, weather, chemicals, and UV rays.
Its maintenance-free design will allow you to focus on the best aspects of owning
a small flock -- tuning into "The Chicken Channel" and gathering delicious eggs.
Easy to Clean
Clean-up is a breeze with the removable sliding litter tray. It is made from high
density 100% UV resistant Polyethylene plastic, and spans the floor of your coop
up to the nest boxes, in order to hold the litter and catch your birds droppings.
A removable access wall allows you to slide it out and dispose of the litter --
put it on your compost pile to make some great fertilizer! Then simply hose
down the tray and replace it in the coop and add more fresh litter shavings.
Your birds will appreciate the incrementally adjustable vents located on both
the front and rear peaks of the roof -- allowing air to flow freely on warm days,
and to minimize the cold during wintertime. The topmost vent on each will always
remain open in order to insure healthy air-flow and minimize ammonia buildup.
Even in cold weather, it is not necessary nor advisable to completely close the
vents. The insulating double-wall construction will help to insure your birds warmth
and safety on chilly nights. Plenty of cuddle space is available to them on the
35" long 2' x 2' wood roost, featuring rounded edges.
Protection Against Predators
The Snap Lock is built to withstand attempts by those wily predators, like
racoons, to break in and get to your birds. Safety hasps on the roof lid and the
wall that you remove to access the litter tray and inside of the coop are secured
with provided carabiners. The 12" wide front and back doors feature a gravity
latch that is also secured with a carabiner. All hardware is zinc plated steel,
designed for outdoor use, and comes attached to the panels. Four carabiners are
provided for use with the coop.
Shipping & Assembly
This American-made coop is shipped in a flat-packed box, and you simply snap the
durable, lightweight panels together, snap those to the base, snap the roof panels
on, insert the interior features, and add your chickens. No tools required, unless
you decide that you'd like to build a stand to elevate the coop, which you can
easily accomplish with some 2 x 4's. The coop comes with thorough assembly instructions.
Please call in your order if you are in Hawaii or Alaska, as shipment will cost $150 more. (Sorry!)
