I bought this coop to use with electric poultry netting in specific areas of our farm. I have not done this yet as I have a huge coop for regular use, so I can not comment on if the chickens or I will enjoy using it. It looks like it could hold 6 full size chickens. Pros: I was impressed with the very clever design of cut out pieces and the ease of assembly of this coop. It can be dragged by one person. it is very attractive. The color is closer to John Deer green not what is pictured. Cons: The plastic clip pieces that keep it together may be the weakest link if taken apart and put back together a few times. They look like they will eventually break. They do not include extra pieces which strikes me as ungenerous and short sighted. Better yet would be to use a sturdier clip which is easier ti use. They sell extras at $1/piece. They shorted me one and when I called Brinsea, they sent extras at no charge. This is an expensive coop that requires some dissasembly to thoroughly clean. Rain gets in the top.It may need a cover in heavy rain. If I knew all that I now know about this coop, I would not buy it again. In all fairness, I cannot report on its daily use as yet. Only its assembly and quality observed thus far.

We are using this as a grow out coop for 6 chicks. We have this coop and the run (a separate items) inside the run where we have the adult hens. It's worked out great so far, but the 6 are still small (about 3 months old). It would be way too small for 6 adult hens, so we will have to integrate them into the flock when they get a little bigger. The coop was very easy to assemble and it very easy to take apart and clean. so far, it's been very safe from predators.
This is a pretty nice coop.

This is a pretty nice product. The back door that you open to collect eggs sticks a bit but other than that it is very nice.

Chickens love it. Assembly instructions could have been a little clearer but very sturdy,.
A pretty good little coop
Anthony Perry from Lyle, WA – Verified Buyer
Back door to retrieve eggs is difficult to open, and the coop could be larger in our opinion. It's easy to put together and clean, and of great quality.
Too Small for 3 Regular-Sized Chickens
Tara from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer
Although I like the ease of cleaning the Coop, it is way too small for my 3 full-sized hens. Brinsea's website says it will fit 3-6 hens, but with only 4.486 square feet interior space (including nest box), I don't see how.
