Some Adaptions May Be Needed

Pros: easy to build, attractive appearance, fairly roomy, keeps chickens dry
Cons: very heavy, needs ventilation, window is not on the largest wall as shown, a little difficult to clean, not as user friendly as it could be
"This coop is easy to put together and suitable for a beginning flock, however there are some things the purchaser should be aware of. First of all, there is no ventilation, which is important to keep your chickens healthy. You could raise the roof a bit, but that's not suitable in winter if it's snowing. We added 4 small ventilation holes (covers available quite inexpensively in a local hardware store) on the east and south side of the coop.
Also, I'm not sure if this is the same for every coop sold, but our coop was not as seen in the photo (which was one of the reasons we purchased it). We wanted the door to the coop facing south with the window on the east side so if the coop had been the same as the photo, it would have been perfect. This was important to us, as we live in a very cold, snowy area so we wanted the solid walls to be to the northwest.
In addition, because the window was on the west, it was on the shortest wall. This was an issue to us for two reasons. The window is too low for the chickens to be able to see out of when they are on the perch, and in our case, because the chosen spot had to be sheltered on the north & west sides the window was now in a shaded area so there isn't enough light in the evening.
The coop would probably be a lot easier to clean if they had made a large door on the largest side so you could just open it, rake the shavings out onto a tarp. It would be easier to add water and food that way, too. (Especially in the winter!)"
