    "TSC Coop"
    Pros - Heavy duty run framing
    Cons - Small coop, high cost
    I've been using this set up for about the past 16 months. Didn't really want a store-bought coop, but being pressed for time, this was the best option open to us.

    The run is made well and I like how tall it is. The run gate can be opened from outside or inside which is nice. We did cover the entire run with bird netting as small wild birds were able to get in and were eating the chicken feed.

    Typical of other pre-built coops, this one is much too small for the number of chickens the maker states. I only have 5 dual-purpose chickens using this coop and would definitely not recommend any more than that (3-4 birds would be better).

    Now that the coop has been set up for a while, some settling has occurred and a couple of the latched openings are a bit difficult to open.

    For the cost, we could have built a custom coop that would have been better but sometimes you do what you have to do.

    I have a couple of questions.
    - Does anyone know of there's an extension option for the run using the same fencing??
    - anyone who has this use anything I'm particular for the trays under the roosting bars?? They are plastic and wanting to use something (shavings or newspaper) to avoid slipping on them.

    Thanks!!

    I can tell you from experience that this is a well-made coop/run! That being said, your ground needs to be level! I have 6 RIRs in mine, and they seem to be very happy. We named ours "Fort Cluck".

      Do you line the trays under the nesting nars with anything??
