very bad quality. it can't be out in the rain. can only hold 5 or less chooks (personally i wouldn't put more than three). there's 2 nest boxes, 2 roosts
i just it for my broody chooks so it's good for that

"Not too bad,could be better."
Pros - Easy to move & ideal broody/recovery coop and run.
Cons - Not as big as expected. Needs TLC and maintaining regular.
I bought this coop and run unseen from the Internet. Not as big as stated and no way would I let more than a couple of birds stay in there. I've used mine as a grow out coop for chicks and for a broody hen and her chicks. Also been used as a recovery coop for sick or injured birds which it has been great for. It needs painting regular and some maintaining as in the roof where it sprung a leak.
Not bad for what I have used it for but certainly not as stated in the advert.
"just fine for three dutch bantams with some..."
Pros - cheap, handy, easy to clean, nice nesting boxes, safe mash
Cons - small, sleeping sticks too low, needs better roofing after two years
I have a similar chicken coop. After two years I made a new roof over the old one because it started to leak. The connexion with the nesting boxes (hinge) was leaking and i made something waterproof over it.
The covered run is quit open and gives little shelter when is windy and raining and you put it in an open field. The food gets easily wet. You need to keep the chickendoor open for ventilation or its getting easily too warm inside. The run is way to small to keep the chickens in 24x7. Therefore a second (open) run or free range is needed for happy chickens.
Last year I had 4 dutch bantams in it. And it was quit small for them. Now I have 6 dutch and I build an extension to this coop with perches at 50 cm from the ground. They started to use these to sleep on when the chicks grew older. I painted (all cracks in) the wood with diatomaceous earth to prevent an outburst of lice.
I hope the coop lasts a couple of years more with all the improvements.
"not the best"
Pros - good for bantams
Cons - small, gets broken in to very easily
it is very easily broken in to, i lost half of the flock. it has a small pop hole, so it is not good for the big breeds. it is ok for growing birds if you pick it up off the ground, but they cant stay in it for long. it is not the best coop, but i like the run. i still wouldn't get it again.
