What do you think? I think that those British are crazy! Just kidding !
It looks like a modified tack trunk LOL
I could knock together something reeealll comparable outta plywood for probably $120 and it'd work just as well but since the market for upscale prefab tiny coops is apparently at LEAST as strong in Britain as in the States, it certainly may be successful, who knows.
I'd put a lot more ventilation in it tho.
I know plenty of people keep their chickens in "low to the ground" coops, but they make me wince. Unless you have Silkies or one of the heavy breeds that really can't roost high, it seems to me that housing like this thwarts a chicken's natural instinct to roost high.
And the manufacturers of these coops seem to have a rather different idea about the space requirements for housing chickens than is frequently cited on this forum. In that respect, they are no different from any other manufacturer I've seen: they always seem to vastly overestimate the number of chickens that can be housed in their accomodations.
I think we are crazy too. I wouldn't house my chickens in there.
It kinda reminds me of our old milk box we had on the stoop with a pop door.
Needs more ventilation for sure.
Took me a sec to realize they were giving dimensions in millimeters.
Walk-in Chicube Dimensions 1500 x 1500 x 2000 Designed for up to 15, 20 or 25 chickens
That is only ~ 5ft x 5ft or 25sf. More of a step in than a "Walk-in".
Most of us would not consider putting more than 6 birds maximum in the UK weather. And, only after we put a boat-load more ventilation in it.
So other than the stupid capacity claims and poor ventilation that almost all online chicken coops are plagued with, they do look nice.
UK£ 809.10 = 1,284.20 U.S. dollars. The price is not as horrible as I would have thought. I bet they could build a supper nice coop if they came and lurked on BYC for a while.
I love the Egg! It's so funny! I'm going to show it my husband tonight, maybe he can copy it for my ducks house! It'd have to be larger of course, but what a unique design.
Who was it that started a thread asking if a chicken could be house trained? Maybe this could be used as a coffee table with a chicken inside.
How about this one
