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
Made in the U.S.A. to be Incredibly Durable
The Formex Snap-Lock chicken coop is designed and made in the USA! It's extruded from a heavy duty double-walled
polyethylene plastic that withstands impact, weather, chemicals, and UV rays. Just take a look at the reviews and you'll see that customers like this coop so well, they end up purchasing more when chicken math
gets them in trouble. And 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. The tray, like the rest of the coop, is made from high
density 100% UV resistant polyethylene, and spans the floor of your coop
up to the nest boxes. Its depth holds the litter and catch 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 Chicken Coop is built to withstand attempts by wily predators 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.
