Great for 3 or 4 Small Chickens (Bantams)

If you are a city dweller and want to have a 2 to 4 SMALL chickens (Bantams) and you have nothing that can get to them like Raccoons then this coop is for you. The add ons of the nesting box and pen are a must. You Can Not keep chickens "cooped" up in this box! Chickens must have sun, fresh air and exercise to stay healthly, happy and productive. We figure 3 to 4 feet of space per bird for our Small chickens. We have 3 Bantams- 2 Polish hens named Thing 1 and Thing 2 and a Silky named Precious.
My children raised them from fertilzed eggs as a homeschool project. They debug our yard and garden and are fun to watch. Remember NO Pesticides! Plus we get 3 small eggs a day! Which are delicious and Far Superior than store bought!
We've gotten our feed and waterer from Petco and we suppliment with fresh greens as a treat. Our 7 cats (also raised on Petco products) don't bother the chickens.
We do most of our shopping thru Petco's online mail order service.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Decent Coop, with some issues

Coop was easy to put together, but arrived with a split/chipped roof board despite some extra corner packaging. Petco allows in-store returns, but it was easy enough to just replace the piece myself.
General statement: I like the style/size of this coop well enough to keep it, but I'm sort of handy with a saw, etc, so can do minor fixes to make it just right. Coop smells very strong of cedar and/or chemicals. Let it air out a few days with roof open before putting chickens inside. This coop is by no means secure against vermin getting inside: the floor boards are ill-fitting and have at least 2 inches of extra space to one end, and the side door has at least 1/2 inch space at top. Mice, rats can have easy entry. Minimal intentional ventilation via small holes will be inadequate for warm summers or ammonia build-up. Two of the three doors have cutesie hearts that swivel to hold doors shut--not enough to keep a raccoon out. Asphalt material on roof not affixed well enough to keep plywood roof from swelling in one area after light rain. And the roosting boards don't fit well into the braces inside the coop, so the boards can wobble easily--not how I envision my chicken sleeping. Screws holding hinges on seem inferior and some are stripped, not by me. Nesting box costs extra and is sold separately (I didn't buy one yet). All in all, still much cheaper than any local coop makers, and a good model to use to make another/better one some day.

It is really nice. The only thing I would change are the heart closures and bottom. The wind could open them and a racoon or critter could in an instant. I did put latches on each door with a mini padlock and on the side where next box
will be in future. I will buy after new year! Love the 3 roosts. Also bottom I screwed down as racoon could reach up and get my little ones. You could easily fit 6-7 bantys in there. Ruby Red & Tyler Too LOVE it & they thank you. Pat
