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!

The smaller coops may not be useful for everyday living, especially for the larger animals. However, we find that they're perfect when a hen goes "broody" and wants some alone time to hatch her eggs. This is also perfect for the first couple weeks after the chicks are hatched; eventually mom can take them out in the vast backyard, coming back to their coop at night. We have bantams which are much smaller than full-size chickens, and the smaller coop provides a cozy home for the young family.

My sons put this together very easily. I would suggest that a nest box be mounted to outside of hutch. And that 2 nest boxes be included.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Its a very nice design and very nice looking but, dont believe it holds 4 chickens, u b lucky if it holds 2, very small, I put it together and was upset due to its size, I ended up building a 6 x 12 ft coup out bak, like I said its ok for rabbits but no way for full size chickens, t HGH e nesting box is kind of a nuisance also,
