    "You get what you pay for"
    Pros - Decent size for price
    Aesthetically pleasing to the eye
    Cons - Cheap cheap material
    Directions weren't very clear
    Definitely not large enough to house 8 large fowl. 4-6 max.
    Placement of hinges and locks is awful and lazy
    Not easy to get into, or clean
    I bought this earlier this year for my 8 chickens. First of all, the thing wasnt east to build. The instructions were *pretty* clear, but certain pieces needed to go in very specific places, so my friend and I found ourselves nailing and then removing pieces to place them somewhere else. None of the pieces lined up very well, which makes for a more unstable coop. It wasnt tbe hardest thing tobuild, two 22 year olds did it with no prior assembly experience, but there was a lot of trial and error.
    The placement of locks and their recieving end are misaligned on every. Single. Door. And no, this is not because of misplacement. I can only lock one latch on each door, which is a safety risk from predators.
    Next, it hasn't even been a year and the thing is falling apart. It's pretty hard to clean, the coop does have a tray that slides out and can be washed. It doesnt slide easy for me. You cannot get into the coop fully. My biggest pet peeve is not having access to the chickens on the coop side, where I cannot reach them.
    This coop is not large enough for 8 chickens, at least not standard size, which in the tractor supply description , it says it can hold 8 standard size fowl. Fortunately, when I had 8, they were pullets and cockerels, so they were smaller. Now even with just the 4 ameraucanas, I still dont think they have enough room to live in. Any more than 4 and they're practically living on top of eachother.
    Overall, it's not the worst starter coop for the beginner chicken owner, who may have 3 or 4 hens, but you really have to pay attention on what part you're nailing down where. And just know that it wont last very long. Cheap wood begins to fall apart. I would not recommend this coop, unless you are pretty strapped for cash to spend on a coop. You get what you pay for.

    "Just OK"
    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.

    It looked so big, but in reality it's pretty small!

    bought this second hand, you could fit 8 small birds in here, but it would be a bit cramped for them. 3 maybe 4 large birds might be comfrotable

    We have this coop, it was our first one for our birds. It worked ok but wasnt much room for 5 barred rocks. Kinda flimsy of you plan on moving it around much. Wood is weak and sides start bending in or out. I just keep it now for new chicks to be outside and get the see no touch from the big girls.

    We purchased this coop from TSC as it was on sale. It was the first time we purchased as coop...I used a modified shed for one, had a home made coop with 4 reds in the garage of one house (bad idea) and now we are starting our 3rd flock.

    As for the quality, it leaves a lot to be desired. The wood is soft and cheap, one roofing panel warped at the bottom 1 day after it was assembled. I had to use 3 additional screws to secure it to prevent entry of snakes thru the open space.

    The latches used on the doors are from hunger. Any raccoon could figure out how to open them in about 1 minute.

    All in all, I am very disappointed in the unit and would not recommend it to anyone.

    We currently have 11-5 week old chicks in it and I have 15 more coming in the next week. So at this point I am going to build my own from scratch and make it big enough for the full 26 hens. This is proving to be quite an adventure.

    My 2 cents.

    Not a terrible coop. It does seem too small for 8 chickens though. I've seen reviews about the wood being garbage and these cops not standing up to weather. I coated mine in Thompson's water seal and it seems to be doing the trick. We've had a weird mix this year where I live (snow, sleet, and rain) and the Thompson's seems to be working great! Not a whole lot of swelling with temp or humidity changes. I will be adding on some additional housing and extending the run because my girls will be a tight fit after they are fully grown. I'll update this a year from now and let everyone know how it holds up to all seasons.

    I'll second KikisGirl's comment. I have three standard chickens in this coop and it is tight. I let them out at least once a day for limited free ranging to reduce the space pressure.

    Even ignoring space pressures, only 6 full-sized chickens could perch on the coop roosts. The others would have to sleep on the floor/nest boxes.

    Depending on what you need, these can be utilitarian and useful coops. Depending on how you move them and treat them -- they can be a low-cost problem solver.

    In my set up, I have 10x10 chain link pens with tarp roofs. Inside these pens the chickens have place to lay their eggs, roost at night and stay in the coops.

    Mine are the older and looks like a bit smaller version than these...and mine are on little tables so that the legs give the chickens room underneath the coops too.

    Mine have only been 100% outdoors for a few months during their lifetimes, otherwise they are inside the pens, or were on a porch at the ranch -- and I think that is one reason that I have had them for a number of years. Mine also have been moved quite a lot -- and they are a bit rickety -- but still holding up. They can be repaired & retrofitted too -- pretty easily to suit your needs. Especially since the older models never had doors to the inside part.
    wish I could show you picts.... can't attach here.... Here, just made a posting for the pictures--worth 1000 words:

    add to my above (post was too long)
    I also have two or three of the non-color coated types -- natural wood color and two one-large, one-small of the plastic Snap-Lock coops, and a rabbit hutch. It works perfectly for the way I manage my chickens and each family has their own home...keep the breeds separate...and different age groups.
    Capacity? Easily they hold three grown hens, and they can hold 4 if they all get along and aren't huge chickens. Yes, I think that they could hold 8-bantams, easily --- AND it is so perfect for putting out juveniles and I've had a dozen juvies in them as they were growing out. If you look at the picts, you can see some of the changes I made... and you can see the sagging nesting boxes, that I need to brace up with some of those metal L-brackets -- but have yet to do. They also have wheel kits for these -- and for years I kept a wheel kit on for easy moving. (before I put them on the tables...)
    It depends on how you manage your chickens, what you expect, how roughly you treat them -- they are not fortresses, they are little chicken coops and yes, fairly flimsy -- but adequate.... I have these two -- bought back in the day when they were $175 -- and it works perfectly for my and my chickens needs. :O)

    I have this exact coop. Quickly realized it was not big enough and we built another coop. It sits inside another enclosure that is 16'x16' so they can be out in big pen all day. It seems to be holding up ok...long term we will have to see.
