    Have been using these personally for chickens, ducks, sheep and goats.

    VERY solid, durable and long lasting! Can be used for pretty much anything. They offer great shelter, easy to move, protection and shade. They're called Cackellacs; Canadian made and the company ships nationwide and can ship internationally. (located in Ontario, Canada)
    Can't say enough good about this product!

    The customer service is amazing. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! They get back to you very quickly.

    They seem durable. Pricey though - 3kish before shipping. I get the convenience of putting something like that up in a day, but you could build a monster coop - even one that's mobile for half that; or take the 3k and build the coop of your dreams.

    They're not for everyone, but for those who go for it, it is definitely worth it.

    I think I remember a post a while back from someone who had one of these or very similar. They had lost their whole flock in a single night and after only having them in there for a short while. The side walls are only 4 feet high so really the only thing between the birds and predators is the plastic. Something(s) ripped in and got all the birds.

    They're not going to protect against everything of course. Nothing that is light enough to move easily will do that :)

    An electric fence can be put up around it. It can be electrified as well. As far as I know, there are very few problems like that with them.
