All round a fantastic basic chicken coop ideal for rearing young birds or keeping 3 to 4 hens.
We use many of these movable coops here at Appletons for raising many of our young pullets on to point of lay. Each day we move them around onto fresh grass. Chooks love having access to fresh greens and moving your coop daily helps to rest the area and keeps your lawn from being scratched over! Ideally hens enjoy having access to free range, they love stretching their legs and exercising their wings so letting them out in the afternoon each day is a good idea.
Thank you for a wonderful product - we love the coop - easy to assemble and easy to shift!!!! Our chooks are very happy and look forward to their shifts! Another successful buy from Appletons! Mary and Jim
Thanks for your product-the chooks are happy and secure and can get out of the wind if wanted.The coop is very sturdy and I'm confident it will last for years.
I bought another one as I love the design of this coop! Being a moveable coop It has plenty of room for my chooks to be able to be on fresh grass every few days, as well as providing a large safe sleeping area for them. The coops are really well built, and should last for years:-)
I have had one of these coops for a couple of months now, and love it. It is a great design, really well made, and easy to move around onto fresh grass. My chooks spent a couple of weeks in the coop before I let them out in the mornings, and they go back in and roost there at night. I make sure I close the door at dusk, so preditors can't get them while they are sleeping and It's nice to know they are safe and sound. If you want to restrict the chooks roaming, purchase a couple of Appletons moveable pens to put around the outside. Appletons are great to deal with, and I highly recommend them.
We ordered this coop as we wanted something small and easy to use for our two, soon to become three, chooks. The coop arrived in flat pack and was easy to assemble. It is a really good design and works very well for a small chicken family. We have it set up within a larger run. Thanks to Appletons for very good service and a great design.
