The Queen Coop - 4’x8’ walk-in coop with exterior nest boxes
This beautiful coop is designed to be used with either a fenced in yard, an added fenced run, or free-ranging your flock.
We are finally offering a very large sized coop! Over the years, we have had several people request a coop big enough to walk into, with windows, and with exterior egg boxes. Recently we upgraded our trailer, and with the help of a light-weight design, we've been able to load and unload this with one person!
This coop is about 4'x8'x8' and it can accommodate about 12-24 hens. There are 4 large nest boxes that are accessible from the outside of the coop. The interior has a set of roosts for 12-24 hens but still has enough floor space to house your feeder and water inside the coop by the front door, keeping it close at hand.
We designed it with light-weight framing so we can move it and deliver it safely. As well, this makes it so you can reposition it if needed. If you want to change it's angle or slide it on it's skids (not shown in the pictures), it makes it more likely that you can do so.
The people door is sturdy and it can be locked with a pad-lock if needed. We design the doors to function even if debris builds up at its base. As well, there is a large lockable scuttle hole that can be closed securely each day, left open, or even taken off to let them have full access to you a secure run. The two windows function and can be opened to add extra ventilation when needed.
Delivery is available at $100 plus a rate of $1.75/mile from 06415. If you plan on picking it up, you'll need to do so with a trailer that has a gate/ramp we can use to roll it up an onto the bed. In general the bed of the trailer should be about 6' wide and 8' long at a minimum. We will detach the nest boxes and store them inside the coop, load it on your trailer, then the customer is responsible for securing their load (likely with heavy straps.
When we deliver, we cannot guarantee installation in its final location. Our driver will be able to safely get it to your driveway or yard. However, the driver is the only one unloading the shelter, and they need to do so in a way that is safe. We are driving a 12' long trailer and can roll the shelter off wherever we can safely back up our trailer. We need to stay on firm ground that is not heavily angled, sloped, or muddy. So far we have been able to deliver AND install almost every one we've delivered; however some lots are too dangerous for us to install, and in that case, we'll have to deliver it as far into the property as we deem safe/reasonable.
You can purchase it on this site and then pay delivery charges later. As well we will accept a deposit of half the cost to get started, with full payment upon completion of the coop. Feel free to contact us to arrange a deposit.
It tends to take us between 2 weeks to 6 weeks to build each order. Winter snows can delay completion until it melts.
