Hi, a friend of mine gave me this cute little house, I am sure many readers have one similar, or are thinking about getting one,I have put tarp on top because although the roof is metal, on the underside, (inside the hut) I could see water streaks. I don't think the tarp is ugly or takes away from the hut, I just want it to last as long as it can. Also the wire if you can see in this pic, looks slightly pushed in, under the hut door, on the yard door, and on the front. I believe a raccoon did it when it, when the coop was at the friend's house. The wire was not pushed in all the way, and there was no holes, but I surrounded the coop with more chicken wire, just in case. There are things I like about this little coop, and it is little. It is cute, and I like the pull out tray. The coop I think is made for 2-3 bantams, or MAYBE 2 reg. sized hens. I brooded chicks in it and didn't have adult hens inside. Would I buy this coop? No. It may just cost from 150-300, not sure, but it is not quality. the walls are thin, and it is not sturdy. I have been to farm stores before, they have these huts, and they have decent chicken houses, the houses are much better, they may cost 800-1400 but it is worth it. Now if you want to get one of these, and I hope you just want to use it to temp. house baby chicks, or if you do get it have a tarp on top, or have it in a garage, or under a porch/awning.
