This coop looks good but it takes a while to weatherproof and assemble. Why isn’t the wood already treated? - needing just a top coat rather than three coats. I fear that it will take a lot of maintenance and repainting over time, especially the rails on the ground. The design could also be better. In particular, the entry ramp leaves a large hole for bedding to fall down - having a raised “lip” around the hole would be an improvement Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop

I bought this model because I didn't want plastic but it came with an enormous amount of polystyrene that won't fit in my bin. It is sturdy and well make but I think the wood should have been treated in the factory. The postage was outrageously expensive considering it too nearly 2 weeks to arrive.The design is really good except the rope is too slippery and the hook doesnt stay in place. It is easy to clean and collect eggs.
Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop
I researched coops for a while before deciding on this one and the consensus seemed to be that cheap doesn't last, so I went for it. I am glad that I did. It looks good in the garden, is easy to use and access and move about and my husband and 12 yr old son put it together in a couple of hours. We weather-proofed it first and it looks great. Got the girls on Monday and had our first egg on Wednesday. Happy chickens! Omlet customer service excellent. Thanks! Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop
