    This coop is commonly carried by Tractor Supply Company. During the spring chick season, I found it on sale for $175.00. The product description states that this coop can house up to 8 chickens. While it houses our three large breed girls comfortably, I couldn't see it housing more than four without space becoming an issue.

    Impressions:
    Initially this coop served us nicely. Our three pullets have plenty of space in both the run and the coop, the two doors provide plenty of access for cleaning and maintenance, and the coop stayed dry. After a few weeks, the cheap construction became an issue. After the first hard rain, the ramp to the coop began to loose it's cross steps. The wood of the coop itself also became swollen. The increased pressure caused the doors to stick and even caused the slats of the sliding door to pop off. Once it dried out, I had to reassemble the coop door with wood glue, clamps, and a staple gun. While this coop does feature a cleanout tray, it is shallow and much of the litter is raked out into the run upon removal. The nesting boxes are pretty basic. They are not very segregated from the rest of the coop, and are divided only by a short board.

    Recommendation:
    After several months of use, I can't recommend this product. Once ours deteriorates, which I think will build one myself.

    I purchased this very same coop back in May, and had to send it back IMMEDIATELY. Ours had broken pieces when it arrived which sadly the company couldn't replace without waiting for nearly a month to receive. The pieces that were broken were not damaged in shipping, they were definitely packaged that way. The box was in perfect shape when it arrived and these particular pieces where deep inside the box heavily padded with Styrofoam. Also, I can tell you that the wood was very light weight and most certainly would have blown over with a strong enough wind. And it will also need several heavy coatings of sealant to prevent immediate water damage.

    I really wanted this coop, and was very disappointed in both the cheap materials and the lack of quality control.
