You deserve better! Don’t settle for a cheap import chicken coop that’s cute… but won’t last more than a season or two. These import coops makes caring for your hens a pain, and can’t adequately protect your chickens from predators. They’re just too cheaply made! Our all new Backyard Chicken Coop Model 2 looks great, works great, will last many years, and is predator safe. Keep up to 5 birds in this compact self contained hen house. Keeps a family of 3+ supplied with fresh eggs.
Sure you could spend $50 or less and get cheap waterers and feeders from your local store or online, but our Easy Fill Waterers & Feeders are better. You can fill from outside the coop, no getting down on the ground. They won’t get pooped on and they hold a generous 4+ day supply of feed and water. They make keeping backyard chickens a joy!
Make your Roost & Root coop uniquely yours with a custom carved name board and/or herb garden kit. You will be prompted at checkout to enter name board information. Need a few days for inspiration to strike? Go ahead and put TBD in the name board field at checkout and we’ll reach out to you before your order is built.
Chickens are extremely cold hardy but if you live in a cold climate region, consider adding a set of storm panels and freeze guard poultry nipples to your coop. Our custom cut storm panels perfectly fit your Backyard Coop and are easily attached with our 3D printed twist lock clips making the storm panels an easy-on, easy-off solution to protecting your flock from snow, sideways blowing rain and subzero temperatures.
If you live in an area that routinely (more than 4+ weeks per year) gets below freezing temperatures you will want to add the package that includes the Freeze Guard Poultry Drinkers.
Reusable plastic mats work great as egg box liners. This is our go-to nesting material, because it’s easy to insert and easy to keep clean.

Design Concept | Backyard Coop
The Gold-Standard in Urban Chicken Coops…
The Backyard Chicken Coop Model 2 is the evolution of our wildly popular and original Round-Top Backyard Chicken Coop. It address several key concerns of our original coop and has been designed to sell at a more budget friendly price. Whether you think of chickens for pets, food quality or food security, backyard chickens make sense.
If budget isn’t as much of a concern, nothing beats the luxury and convenience of a walk-in chicken coop. Nobody has built, sold and consulted more people on walk-in style coops than Roost & Root. If budget is more of a consideration, our highly evolved Compact Coop Series are the perfect answer. This series is the evolution of building, selling and consulting with 1000’s of backyard coop customers. We have thousands of satisfied customers all over the US and Canada and are confident our coop will be a big part of the joy you will get from your backyard flock and look great doing it year after year.
Handcrafted from 100% Real Cedar. Will last many years with or without painting. 10+ years of service life performance via cedar and heavy-duty galvanized hardware. Value: If you were to source your own materials, design, and build a like quality product, the cost and the time would make our price a better deal.
Simple pre-drilled holes can be easily assembled in about two hours with only a cordless drill. Screw bits and everything else you need are in the box.
Provides two adjustable roost bars for sleepy hard-working hens. Your girls deserve a roost as they get in nature.
Heavy-duty construction with a clever design allows the coop to be moved around or taken apart and relocated. Can be picked up and moved if needed with 2 people.
Our Roost-over-Run™ design is ergonomically friendly. Requires little or no stooping or bending over to manage your hens. Simply rake out the run monthly from the removable side of the coop for cleaning.
Updraft ventilated roost. Assures the respiratory health and safety of your hens in hot or cold climates. No stinky poop trays. Poop belongs on the ground where soil microbes can do their thing.
Available integrated EZ-Fill Feeder and EZ-Fill Waterer. Feed and water your flock standing up outside the coop! No cleaning of stinky waterers or messy feeders doesn’t take up valuable run space. No-Poop ~5 day supply waterer that can be freeze protected. No-Poop ~5 day supply feeder.
Up to 5 average-sized hens self contained, up to 8 where daytime free-ranging is feasible.
Built with all galvanized metal hardware and all-weather advanced joinery methods. Rugged long-lasting tangible quality. Made with heavy-duty 16-gauge galvanized predator-proof welded wire. No chicken wire, no hardware cloth. As safe of a coop as there is.
We calculate self-contained hen population statements based on no less than 4 ft² per bird run space (free range by US Gov’t standards) adequate roost bar space, egg box space, and quantity and number of feed and water units that we specify. Free range time is always good but our stated information assumes that the birds live self-contained in our coops year-round.

Airflow in your coop is your biggest concern whether it's summer or winter. Roost & Root Coops use passive updraft ventilation in the roost areas to protect your sleeping chickens year-round from inclement weather while at the same time making sure they get critical ventilation, key to their respiratory health during hot & cold seasons and in particular, protection from frostbite in sub-zero temperatures.
Considerations for Zones 2-6
Snow/Storm Panels:Extreme storms can bring too much of a good thing to the outdoor areas of any coop. Our snow/storm panels are for the run areas of your coop and add temporary extra protection for extreme sideways-driven stormy weather in hot or cold seasons. Panels keep sideways rain and wind-driven snow from making things too sloppy in the run areas that chickens hang out in during the day. They are designed to be attached and detached during inclement conditions in warm or cold seasons, only when needed.Panels are "transparent" for maximum clarity but they also can provide some shade. Where needed, ventilation is added to panels to make sure they do not cut off too much air circulation while still being able to protect your flock from... umm, fowl weather. Panels will not make your coop "waterproof" but will knock out the vast majority of wind-driven snow and rain in the "outdoor" run areas.Freeze Protection:
All coop waterers are shipped with a slotted cap that allows the water to breathe air as the water goes down. We make the slot big enough to allow a cord of an immersible heater to go through too. Based on feedback, submersible fish tank-style heaters work best. Presumably, it keeps the body of water in the tank warmer.Poultry Nipples: Keeping the water from freezing is half of the battle. The nipple can freeze too if exposed to a direct sub-zero wind chill. That's why we create and sell a No Freeze 3D Printed Poultry Nipple that you may want to consider as an optional upgrade if you live somewhere cold.
Considerations for Zones 7-10
Living somewhere that experiences up to triple-digit weather can be bothersome not only for you but your chickens too. As you can see with all of our coops, heavy-gauge wired panels not only provide protection but offer an adequate amount of ventilation for your birds during the hottest of months. It's critical to always maintain your bird's waterer. You can also provide cold treats for your flock to beat the heat as well. For further tips on how to keep your birds cool in the summer, visit our blog post below.How to Keep Your Chickens Cool in the Summer Heat
A Bright Way To Keep Out The Cold Winds & Snow In The Winter… Take Them Off When Things Warm Up!
Live somewhere cold? No problem, we’ve got you covered. Almost every breed of adult chicken when kept dry and out of the wind chill are very, very cold hardy… even in sub-zero temperatures. So if you can keep the water from freezing, the snow from accumulating in the run areas, and keep sub-zero winds off your flock… they’re good to go. And our Storm Panels let in critical light during short winter days. Attach and detach 3D-printed retaining clips from wired panels.

#2 We’re not just a .com:We’re not just another drop-shipping pop-up site that someone started in their basement to make money. We started our business the old-fashioned way using friends and family and by hard work and great customer service have grown it into something that not only supports our family but supports dozens of other families too.

We designed the Backyard Coops to assemble quickly by people of ordinary skills with ordinary tools. A flat, level area is a very important requirement for these coops to assemble easily. All needed screw bits and fasteners are included in the assembly toolkit together with a printed copy of the most current instructions.
Our goal is for the purchase of your new chicken coop to be as surprise-free as possible. In our “What to Expect” section we take our experiences with 10’s of thousands of customers and try to outline things we’ve learned that are consistently important. And of course, if there is some concern that we’re not addressing, just call us at 877-741-2667 and we’ll help you out in person.
Read carefully all the information about a product. We’re not trying to hide anything, but to keep web pages less cluttered, many details are organized in tabs or toggles.
Carefully review the information on your cart page. We try to answer questions there too.
Wherever you see the info icon or “Note”, we’re trying to bring something to your attention.
Most of our products are delivered via freight because of their large size. We package your purchase carefully to protect it during transit. How your item is treated after it leaves our facility is outside our control, but we will make right any shipping damage whether it’s our fault or not.
Shippers will contact you by phone to arrange for your order to be dropped off at an accessible location at the delivery address. Products are designed so that individual pieces can be transported by hand to their final place of assembly.
Written instructions are provided for each order and “assembly overview” videos are available for almost everything we sell to give customers a good idea of what is involved in assembling your purchase before you buy. Most of our products are designed to be assembled by 2 people and in all cases, by people of ordinary skills. We rely on you having a cordless drill, maybe a hammer, and in some cases, a tape measure. Digital copies of the instructions are on each product page and also in the help section.
We try to write instructions for a balance of visual and written use. If you hire a contractor, you’ll want to make sure they read instructions too. Our products cannot be assembled as intended without using the instructions. If you or your contractor do have problems during assembly, you can either call or text us.
Accessories are made to work with our products. We do not warrant their use with products other than those that they are intended for.
Temporary snow loads of ~ 24″ – 30″ deep ordinary snow on the roof have been accounted for. That’s a lot of snow. However, snow should be knocked off often when possible. The icing on the edges of the roof may need to be addressed as well.
