Home Sweet Poultry Home

Don’t your chickens deserve a well-made home?

 

Whether you have just a few hens as pets or several for the eggs they produce—or even a few meat birds—it pays to have your poultry housed somewhere that is safe for them and convenient for you.

 

Sure, you can D-I-Y it and it’s possible that it won’t be an eyesore…but when you take a look at some of the attractive and clever coops available today, it’s clear that someone with an eye toward design (or even engineering!) can do a better job.

Your chickens will thank you for it.

 

Carolina Coops

“If you can dream it, we can build it,” says Carolina Coops. This signature chicken coop is the manufacturer’s most customizable, with a 10’x30’ overall footprint with a 6’x10’ henhouse and is 8-foot high at its peak. The large walk-in coop was made with 4x4 mortise and tenon joinery for the framing, giving it a substantial look. It has a cupola, automatic chicken run door, two 5-gang egg hutches with removable dividers, and a heated poultry water system with gutters. The Carolina Coop comes standard with board and batten siding. All our coops are constructed with premium lumber, are predator proof, have our signature deep litter beds, and are built to last a lifetime.

Roost & Root

The Round-Top Chicken Loft offers unbeatable quality and convenience to provide an unbeatable chicken-keeping experience. Its A-frame shape allows generous space for up to 10 hens and its modular design makes for fast assembly. Handcrafted from 100% cedar and heavy-duty 16-gauge galvanized predator-proof welded wire. Optional integrated EZ-Fill Feeders and EZ-Fill Waterer allow for easy outside feeding and watering. Additionally, as with all Roost & Root coop models, snow/storm panels come optional for extra cold weather protection. The Round-Top Chicken Loft is one of six popular coops handcrafted by Roost & Root’s outdoor family-owned workshop in Dripping Springs, Texas.

Cutest Coops

The founder of Cutest Coops is no stranger to an acreage lifestyle, but when she fell in love with being a chicken keeper, she couldn’t find a coop that was easy to clean, easy on the eyes, predator-proof, or tall enough to stand in…let alone all of these! The lack of high-quality options available at the time is what led to the beginning of Cutest Coops, now a nationwide provider of customizable chicken coops. Sizes and styles range from beautifully housing just a few birds, to a combination she-shed coop where you and the chickens can enjoy life together.

Dakota Storage

A regional manufacturer, Dakota Storage believes choosing a coop is a matter of safety and preference—you can let your chickens range freely while providing them access to a coop for shelter, resting, and egg-laying. Or, if predators are a problem or city ordinances prevent you from allowing your chickens to free-range, an enclosed coop would be better. Dakota Storage’s premium, warranty-backed enclosed and free-range chicken coops are available in 6’ x 10’, 6’ x 12’ and 8’ x 12’ sizes. Available in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, western Wisconsin, northeast Nebraska, and north-central Iowa.
