Materials at a Glance
- Duratemp® siding, one of the choices for this coop, is backed by a 50-year limited warranty, and won’t split or crack. It has a strong plywood veneer inner core, and a tough hardboard face that has the texture and appearance of natural, rough-sawn cedar. Its durability and strength ensure that maintenance costs are kept down.
- Pine Board & Batten and Pine Tongue & Groove are alternate siding choices, also durable and attractive.
- The ACQ pressure-treated plywood floor is 5/8” thick. This type of plywood is typically used for outdoor structures such as barns and sheds that are exposed to the elements. The wood is treated to prevent termites, rot and fungal decay.
- LP® Tech Shield® Roofing Sheathing keeps your coop cooler in warm weather. Its radiant barrier blocks heat from entering through the roof of the coop. It's particularly helpful for warm climate regions throughout the United States.
- Epoxy Flooring is one of our "Cleaner Coop" Options. It is durable, easy to clean and 100% moisture resistant.
Quality-Made in America
This classic chicken coop is made in America, handcrafted by the Amish in Lancaster County, PA, using high quality materials. Each coop is made to order! The pressure-treated base and flooring will keep termites, carpenter ants and rot at bay. All half-inch hardware cloth wire over the windows and air vents is coated in black vinyl and strong enough to keep predators out.
There are 15 paint colors and 5 stain colors to choose from. Two colors are included with your purchase, so you can choose one color for the siding and another for the trim, at no extra cost.
If you've chosen Duratemp siding for your coop, you’ll need to choose a paint color; if you've chosen either Pine Tongue & Groove or Pine Board & Batten siding, you'll need to choose stain colors. Our paint brand is "Haley," a high-end line originating out of Lancaster County, PA, that has been in production for more than 100 years. Our stain brand is Woodwright, a unique line of quality oil-based stains made in Ohio.
Window style, color and options
One sliding window with standard screen comes with your purchase, for ventilation and to add plenty of light! The window is 12" high and 18” wide. For extra predator protection, we add heavy-duty, half-inch vinyl coated black hardware cloth wire over the screened window. Two gable vents also come standard, for extra ventilation. You have the option to add another window above the chicken door.
You will receive white window frames and muntins if you select the painted Duratemp siding; if you choose the Stained Pine Tongue & Groove or Board & Batten style siding, you will receive dark brown window frames and muntins. If you would prefer something different, please indicate this in the "Order Notes" section of the online checkout process.
One prop-open ventilation slot comes standard with your purchase. The ventilation slot is covered on the inside with sturdy half-inch vinyl coated black hardware cloth wire, to keep out predators, rodents and wild birds. The ventilation slot is located on the back of the coop, and runs nearly the whole length of it. This long vent, in combination with the window and gable vents, provides plenty of ventilation, which is essential to avian health.
Chicken door options
Your chicken coop comes standard with a small, 12" high x 9-¼” wide, latched wooden door for you to open and close to let your chickens in and out of their coop. If you prefer, you can upgrade to the automatic door. (We feel it’s one of your best investments!) Learn about the various automatic door choices, here.
Asphalt shingles come standard with your purchase, and you can choose from five shingle colors. The shingle roof has an aluminum drip edge to keep water from rotting the roof sheathing. If you don't like asphalt shingles or you want to match your house, you may choose "custom" asphalt shingles or you may upgrade to either a metal or a cedar shake roof.
Regardless of your style, your roof will include OLP Tech Shield Roof Sheathing: a thin, durable layer of aluminum laminated to OSB roof sheathing, creating a highly effective radiant barrier. This radiant barrier helps to block heat from entering the coop and it will keep the coop cooler in warm weather.The asphalt shingles are Timberline HD Architectural Shingles and they have a 30-year warranty. The metal roofing is AB Martin Brand and they also have a 30-year warranty.
Five-eighths inch, ACQ pressure-treated plywood flooring comes standard with your purchase, or you can upgrade to an Epoxy floor for ease of cleaning--a durable, easy-to-clean surface that is 100% moisture resistant.
(The coop legs and runners are also made from ACQ pressure-treated wood to stand up to termites and the elements.)
All hinges and locks are zinc plated and painted black. The entry door has a keyed lock handle. The chicken door has a latch that can be latched in the open or closed position. The chicken door latch can be locked in place with a Master Lock or a Clip (not included).
The nest box lid does not have a latch. The lid's weight will keep most predators out; however, if there are particularly wily predators in your area, you might want to add a spring-loaded hook and eye latch, a barrel bolt, or something similar.
30-Day Money Back Guarantee!
If you aren’t satisfied with your purchase, you may return your coop within thirty days of receipt for a full refund, less the cost of return shipping.
Add electricity or solar!
If your coop is placed in an area of your yard with electricity nearby, consider the electrical package! You can purchase either the basic or electrical package with a heated roost. The basic electrical package includes an interior light fixture and light switch, an outlet with two receptacles, and it comes with an extension cord hookup to attach to your primary electricity source. The receptacles can be used to plug in your heated waterer (not included), your optional auto chicken door, or your heated roost if you choose.
One wooden roosting bar that runs the length of the coop--and you may select the optional electrical package with a heated roost! Talk about luxury. The heated roost is plugged into the receptacle provided by the electrical package, and it’s heated from within by a heated rope, which is completely sealed for safety.
If you don’t have electricity nearby, consider the solar packages. You can purchase a solar-powered light with a switch or a solar-powered light with a settable timer. The timer can be set to turn the light on and off up to 17 times daily.
The heater roosting bar is not an option with solar packages.
This coop-and-run combo comes with two wheels and wheelbarrow handles. You can move your chicken coop and run around the yard together because they are attached permanently. This will allow you to provide a fresh grazing area for your chickens, not to mention help "spread the love" (poop) around. Our runs have half-inch vinyl-coated black hardware cloth wire to keep your chickens safe. The total run measures 4' x 8', including the 4' x 4' run area below the coop; this covered area conveniently provides shelter when your chickens are outdoors in "fowl" weather! Although the total weight is 600 lbs, almost 90% of the weight is on the wheels when moving the coop around.
Remember that this coop, like every coop we sell at My Pet Chicken, is NOT intended for full-time confinement. You should allow your chickens to free range whenever possible.
Clean that coop!
If you’re a stickler about your coop being clean, you can purchase the optional "clean out lid" and/or the epoxy floor upgrade. The clean-out lid runs almost the entire length of the coop on the back, allowing you to access the coop floor for easy cleaning. The epoxy floor will allow you to remove the waste and clean the floor easily. Epoxy flooring is a durable, easy-to-clean surface that is 100% moisture-resistant surface. Another option is to order the epoxy flooring and use the large door to rake or sweep the waste out of the coop.
