Chicken coops are to chickens as houses are to people. Although there are minimalists out there that like to keep their domiciles as Spartan as possible, most people like to surround themselves with all the comforts of home. I would like to introduce you to 3 of the best chicken coops I have found. One is a large chicken coop with a run. One is a medium coop w/o a run. The third is a coop for up to 8 chickens with a run option. Each of them has all the comforts that a chicken coop should. That Includes nesting boxes, proper vents, doors, and windows.
Each coop is described in great detail, so there should be little left to the imagination. If I missed anything relevant, I apologize. I did my best to make sure you are armed with all the details needed to select the coop that is right for you. They are all in different categories – highest priced to lowest. Or if you want to build your own chicken coop? Check this out.
They all have runs or optional runs.

There are three choices of siding for this chicken coop. Duratemp® is backed by a 50-year limited warranty and won’t split or crack. It has a strong plywood veneer inner core and a tough hardboard face with the texture and appearance of natural, rough-sawn cedar.
Pine Board & Batten and Pine Tongue & Groove are alternate siding choices, also durable and attractive.
The pressure-treated plywood floor is 5/8” thick. Pressure treatment helps to prevent termites, rot, and fungal decay.
There are 15 paint colors and 5 stain colors to choose from. Two colors are included with your purchase so that you can choose one color for the siding and another for the trim at no extra cost.
If you’ve chosen Duratemp siding for your coop, you’ll need to choose a paint color; if you’ve chosen either Pine Tongue & Groove or Pine Board & Batten siding, you’ll need to choose stain colors.
30-Day Money Back Guarantee!
