Formex Snap Lock Large Chicken Coop Backyard Hen House
If you have or are planning to get chickens, one of the basic requirements is a chicken coop and chicken run to keep them in. Chickens require very little but they do need a sturdy, predator proof house and run as well as food and water. When you start looking at chickens coops online, you will notice that there are a large number of chicken coops to pick from. However, if you take the time to read the reviews, many customers were very unhappy with the quality of the chicken coops that they purchased.
Common Complaints About Chicken Coops
Customers that have bought other chicken coops had common complaints which included:
- Cheaply made
- Hard to assemble
- Didn’t last
- Pieces arrived broken
- Coop was smaller than stated
- Coop would not hold as many birds as advertised
Highly Ranked Chicken Coop – Nicer Than The Others
But that doesn’t mean that all of the chicken coops that I found online are the say way. As I was looking at the different coops, one of the, the Formex Snap Lock Large Chicken Coop Backyard Hen House is highly rated and has 30 reviews. What was different about the reviews for this hen house is that most customers were very happy with this chicken house. It was sturdy and was large enough to hold 4-6 Large Chickens or 6-8 Bantams on average which is pretty good. Reviewers were very happy with how easy it was snap together.
You will need to add your own chicken run as this one does not come with one. That is not a bad thing as most of the chicken runs provided with other chicken coops are not large enough in my opinion and are only good enough for the chickens to use until you get up and let them out into a larger area.
