I have only responded to this thread and left 1 review. @jallen062  which i left back in October. And @aart  as I said it is never the best option to leave chickens in a coop, I personally wouldn't keep my chicken contained all the time and I knew that when going into this that I wanted to let them into my yard for the most part, like I said each person is to be aware of their own situation. I am just stating my experience. Of course going out and spending the $2000 for a handmade Amish one is going to be something that will be amazing but they are expensive and don't offer to transport them very far. I looked at those and into something like that and when it was all said and done it was going to be over $2700. That just wasn't doable. I spent around $400 and have been satisfied for 6 months sorry that makes you all upset I guess. I didn't encounter the issues that you people did, and as I said in my other review, which I still agree with this site is more negative than positive on anything I've read. Negative people are louder. I think any one purchasing something for that price would realize these aren't 2X4 coops...I was told mine was fir and it doesn't appear to be plywood to me. So I am not sure about yours? If I paid around $400 and lodge is less money sounds like you are embellishing the cost of yours as well. Either way I am not here to argue I had a good experience and am satisfied.

**Side note. Maybe they do delete off their facebook I don't know I haven't seen any negativity there and hadn't looked at since I purchased but there are many customers showing their own coop that they built from them. I counted at least 7-8 without scrolling too far, and they all seemed happy. You can't please everyone in business. My original comment was directed at the person that is complaining about them stating how many hens they can fit in it. But once again they post their dimensions and it is up to the chicken owner to read that and decide how many can fit. Sadly this how it is at the co-op's. My local co-op says you can put EIGHT in a size that is similar if not smaller than the Lodge when I asked them about it they say the same thing we go off min. sq ft per hen and customer decides what works best.

I said the DOOR was plywood. The rest was warped 1/2 inch tongue and groove crap that was STAPLED together. My husband downloaded wichita cabin coop plans for $5 and built an AMAZING coop for $1000. And I'm not 'sorry' for you, I'm sorry for your chickens. I'm glad you paid $400 for a bigger coop. They dropped the price of the kona after I ordered mine. I have my receipt that I can post. I also paid $100 for shipping, so $600 all together. The coop arrived TRASHED and they didn't offer to send replacement pieces. Good thing hubby is an engineer;) How about I post my receipt and all the emails I have from them? Go look at my posts and see the pics and how mine arrived-then come back and argue with me. 

 

And my chickens free range ALL day, only come in to sleep at night. Still, there is NO way I would confine them to to that awful excuse for a coop.

 

I'd love to see pics of your coop with your chickens in it. We would all love to. 

 

And as far as your notion that this site is so negative: Here is my take. This site is a godsend because it doesn't sugar coat things and doesn't baby people like you. This is the only place I go for advice on my chickens. They tell it like it is. If you don't like it, you don't have to be here. And it seems you are ONLY here to tout these coops!
