    Our coops are custom built for you at our Monticello, Arkansas farm.

    What started as a project for ourselves has evolved into building our coops for others.

    The Economy Backyard Coop is 4' x 8'. Interior is 2' x 4'. This gives you a total of 4' x 10' of useable covered floor space. This coop will hold 6-10 laying hens. This will depend on the breed. Buyer must specify if for large fowl or Bantams. The Economy Backyard Coop comes with lawn mower wheels on one end, so you can lift the other end and move it around your yard.

    And the all new wheel assembly. It allows you to raise the wheel for use and lower the wheel for transporting it around the yard.

    The Large Backyard Coop is 6' x 10'. Interior is 6' x 4', this gives you a total of 6' x 14' of useable covered space. This coop will hold 10-20 laying hens. This will depend on the breed. Buyer must specify which breed. Extra large breeds require a different size nest and entry. Wheels are extra, or we will install your wheels at no charge.

    Our customer chose to use a wood preserving stain and requested metal on the bottom to keep out their own pets.

    Corragated metal cost us an extra $50. We will install the bottom metal for its cost.



    There are some extras fees do to cost of materials:
    Spring hinges (for entry gate): $35
    Insulation of interior and/or roof: $20

    Corragated metal on bottom: $50
    Wheels: cost of wheels or we will install your wheels for no extra charge.
    Delivery fee: reimbursement of fuel cost plus $10 per hour. Will deliver anywhere!

    4' x 8' Economy Backyard Coop: $300


    6'x10' Large Backyard Coop: $500


    Or can custom build to your needs, at our farm or your backyard!

    Thanks. We have more photos on our BYC page. We have these scattered all over Arkansas. Took 3 coops about 5 hours north to almost Missouri!

    Very nice design. However, at the recommended 4 sq ft floor space in the coop per bird, aren't you overstating how many chickens it will hold?

    Yes the coop should really only hold 2-4 hens. With 4 being the limit.

    But it looks great! Wish I was closer.

    The figures are based on Purina's recommendations. Free Ranging in the evenings will also allow to house more birds. The pen is movable, which allows more to be housed. We relocate one of our bantam coops about every three days. The more birds, the more often it will have to be relocated.
