Pros - Good price, decent size.
Cons - It says 8 birds but my 4 are pretty cramped. It's also starting to fall apart just 8 months after purchase.
I bought this coop in February, it is now October and the wood is starting to splinter. If it's misty out or if it's been raining, the wood warps and the doors don't work properly. Also the window over the back hatch warped so bad that it's starting to fall off...
"Meh - not so impressed"
Pros - Easy to assemble
Good access for cleaning
Cons - Very cheap wood
Not good for 8 chickens unless they are under 3 months old
We purchased this item at TSC when it was on sale for 200.00 - while it was quick and easy to assemble and has worked well enough for me to use as a transitionary coop to take chicks out of a brooder and integrate with the adult flock - it's just not that sturdy.
The wood is very cheap and flimsy - any time it rains, or there's heavy moisture, the doors swell and won't open/shut. I used a small hand planer to knock enough off so they would open under most conditions.
The hardware is rather flimsy as well - one of the latches on the dutch doors broke.
I could have made a coop in similar size/detail for the same money that would have been a lot more sturdy.
"Nice Coop for a Few Birds"
Pros - Covered run, easy to access eggs, multiple doors in the runs, two "windows", 3 roosting perches, 3 nesting boxes, pieces are well marked, cute
Cons - Took longer than an hour to put together, really only good for a few birds unless small
I bought this coop because I ended up with a stray chicken that I was keeping at my clinic until the owners were found. I ended up adopting her and needed a coop immediately. It's a cute little coop. However, she's a buff Orpington and I am getting two more and a black Australorp this week and the description of "up to 8 chickens" is very accurate! There just isn't going to be enough room for all 4 of them unless I truly was just using it for them at night time and and maybe an hour or two during the day. The pieces of the coop are well marked. It actually has held up well so far with our New England crazy weather and my golden retriever. The features are really nice. However, I am in the process of upgrading to a larger coop. I will be keeping this one though for a quarantine coop.
