Recent Customer Testimonial

"Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how much I love the new coop! The pictures in the manual & instructions that Julie sent me were absolutely the best. My father in law and myself had the coop built in 2.6 hrs and it went together better than any other kind of kit that I've built in the past. Everything was square and tight. WOW! We still talk and laugh about how well it went together. 

You can see by some of the photos we took (below) how well it looks. (It just got leveled and I recently had all the roofing done this past weekend). You can also see how small my first one I built last year was compared to this one. Yahoo! Once I have the run put in and landscaped out I will send some more photos. The babies (3 wk olds) are already in the coop and feeling right at home!"  Mike D.

Some Little Known Facts:

Here's the ingredients list from a feed designed for hens raised in a commercially confined area and sold in our grocery stores: Grain Products, Plant Protein Products, Processed Grain Byproducts, Roughage Products, Forage Products [in other words, could contain pretty much anything!], Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Choline Chloride, Folic Acid, Manadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex, Methionine Supplement, Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Manganous Oxide, Ferrous Sulfate, Copper Chloride, Zinc Oxide, Ethylenediamine Dihydriodide, Sodium Selenite.

In addition, most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. That's the conclusion we have reached following completion of the 2007 Mother Earth News egg testing project. The testing has found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture (even your backyard) contain:

  • 1/3 less cholesterol

  • 1/4 less saturated fat

  • 2/3 more vitamin A

  • 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids

  • 3 times more vitamin E

  • 7 times more beta carotene

Hmmmm..... might it be to your advantage to consider raising your own chickens for eggs in your backyard? We think so! Our 4' x 6' or 6' x 8' can house 6 to 12 chickens, producing eggs which we know you will enjoy and benefit from!

Note: Be sure to check with your local building department and/or your homeowners association as to the legality of raising chickens in your neighborhood before you purchase one of our chicken coops. Some areas restrict "farm animals" to agricultural zones.
