It seems like nearly everyone who comes into CLUCK the Chicken Store has an idea of the perfect chicken coop. And now that spring is (almost) here, we have noticed that a lot more of our visitors want to talk about coops. We’re happy by oblige.
Talking about what we like in a coop just got easier, thanks to the coop that arrived this week from Henry Topinka, one of the craftsmen who builds the coops we sell. It looks a bit like many other coop designs you see around the area, but it also has several features that we think set it apart from the pack.
- The roosting house and the covered run come apart, which makes the whole unit light enough for 2 people to move around the yard using the sturdy handles affixed to both ends.
- It is sized to fit in the back of a full-size pickup truck – the better to get it from CLUCK to your backyard.
- It incorporates plastic clean-out trays in the roost house and a simple access door so you can clean the coop in about 60 seconds. No scraping hardened poop off a wooden floor!
Those are just a few of the things we like about this coop. The final thing is that Henry has put a remarkable level of craftsmanship into the construction. We think anyone would be proud to have this coop in the backyard.
If you are thinking about building or buying a coop, we invite you to visit us at CLUCK and talk about your idea of a perfect coop.
