Super cute, but falls apart

This coop is really cute and easy to put together, but it started falling apart less that a week after purchase. It is very cheap material. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Cute coop, very small!

Very cute coop! It arrived quickly and I was excited to put it together. It came in great condition, it smelled good, and was a cinch to build. The pieces fit well together, the metal is strong and the wood is lightweight. The sliding tray is easy to remove and clean up (we use sand in ours, it makes it very easy to clean up with a kitty litter scoop and also keeps it cooler in our hot weather. The coop has primer already applied so painting it was a snap (I still did 3 coats, but probably could have gotten away with 2). We needed to cut about 2.5 inches of the right side of the run and the roof to make it fit in the space we allotted. It was easy to disassemble the preassembled sides, cut them to our needed length, and then reassemble. The coop area is very small. We have 3 hens and that's good because this coop would probably only fit 2 comfortably and 3 hens cozily, not 4 like is advertised for sure! Our hens are free ranging throughout the day and will only be in the coop to sleep. If they are going to be in there for any more time than that then the coop is way too small. The nesting box takes up 1/4 of the floor so I did not put it in the coop, I am going to make a separate nesting box outside of the coop. I added in a roosting bar that spans the length of the coop using a 2x4 and 4x4 bracket holders so that the roost would be removable to clean or replace. The included bar (really just the handle of the nesting box) is too small, sharp-edged, and really is lousy since it is only big enough for 1 hen to use at a time! The "run" is very short height-wise under the coop and will not due for chickens to stay penned into all day, but it does keep the coop elevated which will help deter insects and mites. We added the scalloped trim to the roof and I painted the "x" on the door to make it look like a mini barn. All in all I am pleased with the coop, but would strongly recommend getting a much larger model for anything over 3 hens, and would not recommend keeping them in this small space longer than overnight. Cheers!

Great, but chinsy for the expensive price.

So yea, this is perfect for what I needed. A modified CAT HOUSE! I looked everywhere and this fit the bill with some post modifications which I had to make such as: 1 - Cut the back wall so I could push the coop against a wall and the cat door exit ends up in the hutch. That worked great. 2 - Got rid of the white trim on top and put hinges on the small part of the roof so I can lift it up and get to the inside where I put a litter box. That worked out great. I stapled some plastic over the seam/hinges to keep water out. 3 - I eventually pulled the slats out of the upper door and put in chicken wire for better venting All in all, great experience... HOWEVER: The wood is horribly lightweight and splits easily when putting in the screws so beware. I felt for the price, better wood could of been used. Something that will last and not split so easily. It's almost like a strong balsa wood. Picture was before I modified the left roof side to open. I had to reverse the white trim to allow for the swing and to keep it held up, I just stick a rock between the white pieces. I tried to add a hinge BUT THE WOOD IS TOO CHEAP!!! Again... the wood..... such a weak-sauce part of this whole equation...

A perfect home for the guinea fowl young...

Easy to assemble --everything as advertised. Well put together pieces. Easy to dissemble and transport and reassemble, if needed. Great upper box that is wind-protected. The chicks make good use of the whole space. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Easy assembly and good looking

Super easy to put together. Only thing is since we are putting it on our patio I had to build a base for it to sit on. Otherwise perfect. But it is exactly as advertised. Only took 15-20 minutes to put together. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
