The door slides up and down with a rope tie off. An optional automatic door
is in the works so you don't forget to let the hens out in the morning and keep predators
out at night.
These windows close for protection against storms and winter weather. The hearts
shapes are covered with Lexan. Ventilation: Comes up from the center aisle, the
end windows and the eaves.
The roost bar is 6' long and as you can see in the photo the hens prefer to
sleep like sardines four hens in less than 2' of bar space. When using the optional
mini brooder partition the roost bar is only 4' long limiting it to max. of 8 hens.
Access to eggs is safe and easy as the lift assist arm takes the load off and dampens
the speed coming down to add protection for children and chickens.

A trap door in the upper henhouse keeps chicks warm and safe until big enough

months with additional plywood installed over the upper screen area.
The Henhouse comes with 5 bins. All bins provide for 14" width x 12' deep (large
size). Double stacking bins is an option but the number of bins for each chicken

lifting with 2 people.

The built-feeder allows for feeding chickens without taking additional space
inside and can be filled from outside the house without the need to open the door. Feeding
the chickens within the house is a good thing should you need to keep them in the
house for any reason. Plywood is added to feeding area for easier standing and conserving
feed spillage. The poop tray also catches spillage from falling to the ground.
The Mini Brooder is a partion that can be installed in the front 1/3 of the
house. The big hens can still have access to three nests and can get acquainted
with the chicks until they are grown up enough to remove the partion. The Mini Brooder
easily folds up to get in an out and attaches with screws. It has a window that
can be closed retain heat or privacy. Also comes with a shortened roost bar.
Our synthetic, washable nests are soft and comfortable and keep eggs from being rolled
around and broken. These nest are a great alternative to hay if you have allergies
and it is much easier to keep the house clean. The outdoor carpet pads are included.

The poop tray is designed to slide out for those in urban areas who do not move
the house very often. It makes for easy cleanup of poop to be used in compost. High
concentration of poop droppings under the coup can burn the grass making it difficult
to grow grass. The tray also adds an element of safety against predators that can
get under the wire, harass and claw at the chickens feet as well as provide a safe
and shading place for little chicks to hide from the sun and air attacks. The tray
has a vinyl covering for easy cleaning.
Running boards for children to be able to collect eggs and tend to the hens. They
also provide a roost for chickens and and stay clean enough to provide a seat for
DOUBLE STACKED BINS
2 additional bins can be double stacked on one side to allow for a total of 7
bins if desired for individualistic type hens. Access to eggs is still possible
from the same side.
The Hen House comes fully assembles but painting is optional for those who would
like to save money and paint it themselves. We provide painting as an option and
even a custom color you chose from Home Depot colors. We put two coats on the outside
and edges of the plywood before assembly as seen in the photos.
