I was not prepared for all of the small pieces in the box. I don’t know if I have the time or energy to put this together before my baby chicks need it. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this.
This chicken barn is a great purchase. It was really simple to put together. It is made very sturdy. We have a chicken that was attacked a year ago by a dog and we have nursed her back to health, but she can not be with her flock anymore due to a few handicaps she has now. So we purchased this barn which has a nice low ramp and she can get in and out of the barn easily. It is water tight. No drips or leaks. She even started laying eggs again. Something we thought she would never do. Overall I think this was one of the best choices we made for our flock. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who only has a few chickens or one that needs a little extra care.
I bought this for 2 ducks, and it's ideal. Feels sturdy, was easy to assemble and has been easy to clean. Some of the low ratings seem to ding it for use with larger flocks, but if you've got 2 or 3 pet ducks, don't be dissuaded!
Took it a bit to get it started, the directions are meh, but once the base was down it was easy. Like putting together a 3D puzzle where the parts are numbered. The roof does not lift but comes off easily if need be. The nesting area does lift and has a spot to lock if needed. The ramp is a bit slick, so I added grip tape. I use this coop for two muscovy ducks and it works great. They have plenty of room and it's easy to clean. It also looks nice in the backyard. Their old coop was a wooden one, shortly after a year of use it was modeling and rotting in many areas, with holes in the floor. It left my male duck very sick for a while. New coop up and he's feeling much better and active again. This coop is EcoFlex which does not mold, resists moisture and insects. which is perfect. Added the tarp because of inc bad weather. Just wanted to make sure nothing was blown in while they rest.
I had ordered this to separate chickens but ended up using it for my two lop ear rabbits. It makes a perfect hutch for them. We fenced it in around the front so they can come up for exercise. Easy to put together and lightweight so it's easy to pick up and move. Very happy with this purchase.
Not what i expected. Missing 1 hole for a screw, two pieces came broken and it seems flimsy like more may break over time. Bottom of the coop has 2 major flaws: first, the bottom could easily be pushed right out of place by predators, so forget elevating it. 2nd, it has 4 large holes in each corner, so even big snakes would make it inside with no problem. I expected it to be heavier plastic. Its very thin. Glad their are vent holes, but they will allow cold air to blow directly on the chickens heads, which means frost bite in zone 6b winters. It should really be taller. Roosting bars are so low, there isn't room for much bedding. Again, not good in cold winters. Overall, i would not recommend this coop for full sized chickens. If anything, maybe for a broody to raise her chicks temporarily. I am afraid to put my chickens in it overnight as i feel a raccoon would just tear the thing apart.
