There were actually two more coops at the other end of this trailer and I thought they looked so cute pulling up to the house. The driver was really helpful with unloading and helping us get it to the right spot in the back yard. Since all of Horizon Structure's coops come fully assembled, it was only a matter of getting it to where we wanted it.
The coop is perfectly adorable and I love it! This is called the 5 x 6 chicken coop and is designed to house up to 15 birds. The ground where we set it up was not level so we had to put something under one side, but I have already started planting hostas and ferns around it to make it even more cute. Horizon Structures offers many options and add ons to their coops, everything from paint colors to dawn to dusk doors, you can even put it on wheels so that it can be moved easily. I chose the colors on my coop as well as the color of the shingles on the roof.
Someone could not wait to get it ready and more the chickens in. She even asked if she could sleep in there!
Here is a picture of the inside (with a handful of straw lol). There are two windows that open and close on the right, underneath those there are nesting boxes that are also accessible from the outside of the coop. To the left is their little roosting area and above that is an additional ventilation window that can open and close. I will have to do a full video tour to show all the great features that this coop has. I love that it is raised off of the ground, it makes it much easier to clean in there.
Here they all are checking out their new home, aren't they cute? My bantams are still pretty small, and won't be nearly as big as standard chickens, this makes them an easier target for predators. This chicken coop is completely predator safe. We added a small run on the outside, but will have to replace it with a bigger one once these guys grow up.
I am so happy with our new coop and it looks so nice in our yard, I'm glad we did not attempt to build something ourselves. You will have to stay tuned for a little video tour and some live footage of this cute little rooster crowing.
Disclosure: I was sent this beautiful coop by the generous people of Horizon Structures, all opinions and photos are my own.
