    "Great for Quails!"
    Pros - GREAT for Quails!
    Cons - Pan doesn't slide that easily...
    This hutch Is GREAT for quails! We got it at TSC and it was pretty easy to set up. We have four full-grown Coturnix quails in it, and they still have room to run around. The Quail don't use the bar in it, they just hide under it. We currently have the pan on the ground under it, it didn't slide out that easily. The wire floor is great for quails. They've never gottten feet stuck. We keep it up on the porch were it's somewhat protected, I don't think it would do that great out in the open. If I were to keep chickens in it, I think It would hold 2 max.

    "A Horrible Coop"
    Pros - Non that I can think of...
    Cons - Hard to clean, parts didn't fit, too drafty and much more!
    I bought a "Chick-N-Hutch" from a local Tractor Supply, the sales man said that it would easily hold 4-6 full sized hens. When I was putting it together, the roost bar was too small for the hutch! Then when it came time to put on the roof, the hinges did NOT line up and the chain to hold the roof open was on the wrong side of the hutch. I was able to fix the coop with a drill and some screws. When I final got my six week old girls out in the coop, they were fine for a little bit, then by six-teen weeks old they already out grew the hutch. every time it rain, they got rained on too. By October the wood was pealing off and the dropping tray would never slide out with ease nor would it go back in easily. In November, I finally built a new coop and burned the old one.

    "looks nice, that's about it"
    Pros - looks nice
    Cons - cheaply made, ducks and chicks won't enter/exit on their own
    Used for chicks for a month or so. Does not contain the bedding. Drawer beneath does NOT slide in and out easily. Legs were not sturdy. They did like the bar for a roost. Ducks did not care for it AT all. Ducks and chicks would NOT walk up or down the ramp and the little window on the front is not big enough to help with access nor does it serve as a ramp for the animals to use. Ducks chose to sleep UNDER it rather than in it outside. Best use for it was for transporting ducks in the back of the pickup. Remarkably it does not look any worse for the wear of being outdoors for the last 8 months.

    I need one of these...

    Sounds like you have a pretty great sense of what you bought
    negative and positive

    Update on weathering............it has NOT held up to two years of ordinary weather in NC. Roof rotting through, frame warping, hardware rusting. Not sure I can even transport birds in it at this point.
  4. 3riverschick
    Consider it made 4'Dx8'Wx4'H. With kiln dried pine. It would make a nice warm weather coop or growout pen. Yeah, you would need 5 sq. ft. per large fowl youngster and that limits the number a bit, but for backyarders who are doing staggered hatches or just replenishing their flock, it would work.

    However, the basic design is solid. Just needs reworking in dimensions construction details.
  6. SillyChicken
    that thing is only big enough for one or two small birds.. or maybe as a brood box for temporary. My DSIL uses one inside her coop to acclimate new chicks. Those coops are cheap, not predator proof and certainly not weather proof.

    Point being, you could make it out of wood of choice and dimensions needed.

    This is an interesting little coop. It looks like it was built over the plans available in the public domain hardback " How To Build Pet Housing". Numbered, measured diagrams w/supplies list. The books author says he hopes someone will take the plans and make a business out of it. Perhaps Chick-N-Hutch has. There are a lot of neat plans in this book with the same excellent instructions. Duck, dog, cat, outside rubs, etc. A great little book.

    When I was looking to build a coop I saw this coop for sale at tractor supply. I liked the look of it but not the price and small size. I built my own based on this design but scaled it up to 4 x 8. Check out my album pics. Still cost me about $400 but it is one nice coop
