Walk right in to the large Barn Red Deluxe Mobile Chicken Coop! The 6-foot
ceiling means no more crouching for you, and extra room for 10 happy egg-laying
hens. Yet it's so easily portable you can move it daily. Wheelbarrow-style handles
lift the load onto easy-rolling pneumatic wheels, so your whole yard can benefit
from a free-range chicken's natural ability to fertilize and control bugs and
weeds through the open floor. Makes lawn care a snap, too, with no more bald
spots. Rear door lets you gather fresh eggs without fuss, while side door gets
you in to feed, water and clean. Outdoor rated YellaWood lumber loves the weather.
A built-in platform supports three nesting boxes, included. Keeps your chickens

Standard vs. Northern Option
Standard model coops: Each coop has a nesting and roosting area. The Standard
model's roosting area is open to let your chickens come and go as they please
with laying eggs, but is more susceptible to the elements. Depending on where
you live, you can choose the best option for you and your chickens. Beneath
the main image, the last photo shows a straight-on view and a Standard model
coop's open nesting area.
Northern model coops: If you are looking for a little more protection from
the elements and possible predators, than this is the option for you. The Northern
option comes with an enclosed nesting and roosting area for your chickens so
you can be worry free. No matter where you live predators can be a problem,
but now we have a solution that’s just for you. Beneath the main image,
the third and fourth photo shows a close-up view of the doors and the extra
security of the enclosed nesting area of the Northern model. This model has
the same three nesting boxes and roosting platform as the Standard model.
