Plastic Chicken Coop (up to 4 full size chickens)
I am a huge fan of the Snap Lock Plastic Chicken Coop. First of all, it is light and easy to move, and second it is durable. You don’t have to worry about the chickens destroying a plastic coop. They can peck until their little hearts are content, but they will not destroy their plastic house. Third, you don’t have all the mite crevices that love to make their home in wood coops. And finally it is easy to clean!
This coop can easily handle four large birds, but based on the specs, I think you could get five in there. It has a roosting bar, three nesting boxes, ventilation, and a pullout tray for easy cleanup. Another plus for this coop, is that you can have it shipped to you through normal channels, not having to worry about large freight. It took me about 30 minutes to put together the coop. The directions say that no tools are required, and it is true that you could put it together with no tools, but it was hard to snap the pieces together by hand. I would recommend a rubber mallet to bang them into place.
All in all, I am very happy with the Snap Lock Plastic Chicken Coop. It’s not perfect, but it is pretty close, and for the money it is a great value.
