Interested in buying a chicken coop for your home? Whether you live on a farm or in an urban area, Wayfair has plenty of chicken coops for sale that will meet your needs. Available in a variety of sizes and styles, our chicken coops will provide a comfortable and safe home for your flock of chickens.
If this is your first time purchasing a chicken coop, there are a few things you should consider before buying one for your home:
What size coop do you need?
The most important thing to consider is the size of the chicken coop since chickens needs ample space to move about and run. If your coop is too small, your chickens will begin to fight and could transmit disease from one to the other. At minimum, there should be three square feet per chicken within the chicken run space. For larger breed chickens, you will need even more space than that. Luckily, Wayfair makes it easy to shop for different sized backyard chicken coops. Use the left hand navigation to filter by the amount of chickens you have to find the coop that’s right for you. You may want to buy a coop that will fit more chickens than you have in case you want to add to your flock in the future.
What features are included in the coop?
A great chicken coop will have three essential features: roosting bar, nesting box, and sturdy fencing. Like other birds, chickens are most comfortable sleeping on a bar or roost off the ground in order to avoid potential predators. Similarly, it’s best to have a coop with chicken hardware cloth fencing. Unlike chicken wire, which dogs and coyotes can easily chew through, hardware cloth is sturdy and will prevent predators from accessing the coop. Lastly, the coop should have a nesting box that provides your chickens with private space to lay eggs. You don’t a nesting box for each chicken as three or four chickens are able to share a nesting box.
Other features included in most coops in our store include a hinged roof, pull-out trays, and ramps. The hinged roof is an excellent feature to have as it makes it easy to collect eggs from the coop. Pull-out trays make for easy cleaning of the coop, and the ramps provide easy access in and out of the house for chickens.
Will the coop be warm in the winter and cool in the summer?
Like us, chickens like a warm place to stay in the winter and a place to cool off during the hot summer. As a result, you want a chicken coop that is insulated, waterproof, and provides shade. To ensure this, we recommend buying a chicken coop with a quality roof to keep out the rain, a shaded, open-air chicken run for those hot summer days, and a well-built house for the chickens to sleep in during cold nights.
