    Perfect for our 5 bantam hens

    When I bought this last summer, I knew it would not be large enough for the 6 chicks that we were expecting, but I was not intending on keeping all 6 anyway, so the size wasn't a concern. One chick died during shipping, but we were still left with 5. And naturally, we ending up keeping all 5...

    Keep in mind that bantam chickens are fairly small.

    When the 5 grownup hens moved into the house late fall 2014, they settled right in. Not really sure why I was so concerned since they still all sleep together in one of the nesting pits - 5 hens occupying about one square foot. It looks really squishy, but they seem to love it. It also keeps them very toasty warm in these cold New England winters (worst winter temp was about -15 F).

    I do have to say that I made the following improvements:
    1. I added a sheet of plywood under the entire frame, protecting them from the predators that may dig. We lock them in every night.
    2. I added an outdoor enclosure (4 x 8), fully chicken-wired with a plastic roof. I rigged it up so that this enclosure is attached to the house. I felt the outdoor space was otherwise too small and I wasn't willing to let them roam free in my yard.
    3. Because I was concerned that the winter exposure would damage the housing pretty quickly, I decided to cover the entire house with a plastic tarp so that it actually never got very wet. I fully expect to be removing this tarp soon, as soon as the snow melts...

    I can guarantee that the hens are happy in their habitat by the quantity of eggs they are producing. Fact is that they are supposed to produce one (small) egg every other day (per hen), but they are just about doubling that quantity of eggs. And they are all sharing a single nest!

    The house's 4 access points are great and convenient for egg "hunting" and cleaning. Assembly took a while, but wasn't really difficult. And the house itself is very attractive. But I think that an extra outdoor enclosure was necessary for our 5 bantam hens since I wasn't planning on allowing them to run free outside.

    When looking for coops we were either finding ones for a few hundred dollars, like this one, or ones starting at $1K. Since this is our first time having our own chickens we thought we'd go with a cheaper one to see how things went before we started spending the big bucks. I will say that it is a beautiful looking coop, but that's about all it has to offer. One of the pieces on the top ridge of the coop was broken when we got it (the box had no outside damage, btw). Things don't quite line up completely. The finish on it is kinda a joke. No water beads up on it, so it's not going to withstand any weather. We did put some sealer on it to try and prolong its life. We received this in May and four months later it is already starting to get wobbly. We're hoping it makes it through the winter, but we are definitely going to have to do a lot of reinforcement. It doesn't show it in the pics, but the top of the coop opens up. On windy days we've had the top blow completely open. We use a bungee cord to keep it closed. The pull out try arrived a bit warped. The coating on it is starting to wear off. If you put anything down to try and protect it, like wood shavings, they are mostly wiped off when you pull the tray out to clean it. We were hoping to get two years out of this, but I'm just hoping it will last through the winter. As for size, I would say three chickens max. Do more fit? Absolutely, but I don't believe it's really enough room for the chickens to be content. We made a temporary run for them out of PVC and chicken wire to go in during the day and then they return to their coop at night. I am surprised at the high ratings this coop has gotten. It's why we decided to go with this one in the first place, but I wish we hadn't. You can get a coop just as poorly made as this one for under $200 at a farm store.

    Comments about Boomer & George Tree-Tops Chicken Coop:

    I will add this "FIR" unit is more like Balsa Wood than what I know as Fir. Reinforcement will be needed for sure. In my opinion, it will not last long. Should have listened to Kate, not the other reviewers. It's a shame as it is very attractive...that's all.

      Comments about Boomer & George Tree-Tops Chicken Coop:

      We had the nesting box put together in less than a half hour all the pieces were here and ready to be assembled with the holes in the proper places.We do however have an issue their is a slight gap where the nesting box and outside coop meet we are going to have to find something that will move along with the top of the box to open and close it because i don't want the hens not going into their box because it is wet.But all in all I bought this coop for my 2 Orpington's and a surprise chick.So All in all I think this was a good price for a starter coop we are building our Big Coop over the springlike and Summer weather so will be ready for winter this is just going to be my chick coop or extra when bringing new birds home.

          Comments about Boomer & George Tree-Tops Chicken Coop:

          I purchased this chicken coop as a Christmas gift for my husband. He was thrilled as he has long wanted to keep chickens. In early February, he opened the boxes to assemble the coop and found all of the hardware and several wooden pieces missing, needless to say he was disappointed. I immediately called Hayneedle.com and explained our predicament, the customer service folks were very helpful and went out of their way to resolve our issues. The missing parts were mailed within days and coop construction was completed. The coop is attractive and will blend well with our yardscape. We opted for a few upgrades including; stainless steel hardware, an extended run and the addition of a planter to our future home for chickens. Our plan is to make a home for four hens.

              The workmanship on this chicken coop is first class. Assembly was very easy and all parts fit perfect. Ordered the wheel kit and it fits nicely on this coop. Wish I has ordered 2 of these instead of l of this style and 1 by another company that looks like a red barn.

              Well packaged, arrived on time, coop went together easily thanks to pre-drilled holes. Written instructions were imprecise. This coop is good looking and the chickens will probably like it. Definitely not designed for withstanding winter weather. Mine is in my garage for year round use.
