    Has anyone purchased the backyard hutch from ware? It says it can be used for chickens also. I know its not big, but maybe be a good house for a pair or trio of bantams such as serama's. For $79.00 it seems like a decent price.
    Heres the link:

    Oh that is a nice looking tractor type coop......would work great for a trio of seramas or batams....not a bad price at all.especially for peeps like me who couldn't build something to save my own life [​IMG]

    It looks nice, but the holes in the wire around the pen look too big, I'd probably reinforce it with hardware cloth.

    Yeah, thats a good idea. What do you guys think about the dimensions? How many bantams could fit in there?

    It looks like a nice chicken tractor. If you used one I would cover over the wire with a smaller holed wire like a hardware cloth. Those holes look big enough a coon could snatch a hen and eat her through the wire. Sorry to be graphic but it does happen.

    Looks cute to me. Wish I could see the inside of the end.

    Yeah, I'd say a pair or trio of bantams, maybe from the looks. I didn't check the dimensions out, though so I may be off.

    Agree about the wire definitely.
