Coops like this do not last very long. They have plywood or wafer board inside for floors, egg boxes, etc.; and if you get them wet by cleaning them, they rot out. With these types of coops, you will need a run and now they are not portable.
So if you live somewhere and you want to move your coop to fresh ground, you won't with these. They are good for a few laying hens at most, you cannot go inside of them to clean them out. They’re very hot inside in the heat of summer.
We have, in 10 years, replaced coops like this because customers could not do much with them. Why waste your money on something that will last a short time and is not easy to clean? It’s a shame to see people waste their hard-earned money on something that does not work and will fail. They may look cute, but for chicken coops, are useless. And you will spend from $400 to $650 on one of these, only to discard it in a short period of time because it’s not working for you.
Chickens like to be on the ground to scratch the ground for bugs, etc. So this type of coop is useless if you live in the city limits as you cannot free-range chickens unless you want to chase them all over your neighborhood and upset your neighbors.
Even in the country setting, you will have to construct a run of some sorts to make these work and now you can't move the coop because you have a run attached to it, to allow the chickens to have a new area on the ground.
A lot of people do not have any idea what will not work for them. Raising hens and being around them for 40 years, we only sell and build coops that look good, are easy to clean and move, and will last 15-20 years.
Look at the framing of this coop. Regular pine framing lumber and not even a full 2X4. There are 2X4s ripped in half, that is why the wall has a big sag in it. Try washing the inside of this coop and it will rot out in a year or two.
We use full PT 2X4 s not lumber ripped in half to save us money. Our smallest coop weighs more than their largest being built in NC. We build them to last 15 years and know they will last that long.
09/27/21 Pictured was a coop one of our customers bought less then 2 months ago from someone in the Greensboro area selling them on craigslist calling them the lodge, the walls are so flimsy an its built out of rough sawn pine no pressure treated at all. u can move the walls all around my customer bought 2 6X12 coops from us to replace this one pictured as he said he was not very happy at all, we brought him his first of 2 6X12's to Roseboro, NC he paid about $2300 for the one pictured.
Goat sheds built an framed with spruce an fir 2X4's in outside conditions will not last as you see pictured here.We only use Pressure treated number 1 lumber in our complete build. We also use 1/2 pt plywood so you have no cracks in floors for air to come in from under the building.
