- Design Concept & Key Points
The Heritage Chicken Coop™ Model 20 is like nothing else in the marketplace…
Roost & Root coops are featured in upscale homes all over the country, and our Heritage Series Chicken Coops™ takes things to another level. All three models are designed to afford their owner an exclusive chicken keeping experience in a premium featured ready to assemble mega sized chicken coop. Handcrafted from 100% Real Cedar. It will last many years with or without painting. We even dip the bottom rails in a silca wood densifying dip that will further enhance the ground contact performance of the cedar. All wired panels feature pre-attached 16 gauge galvanized welded livestock wire that is extremely predator safe. No plywood. All wooded panels are 5/8 cedar board lumber. Pre-drilled holes and fewer panels allow for a 2 person DIY or handyman assembly with only a cordless drill, a measuring tape and a hammer. Screw bits and everything else you need is included. Shipped in two palletized crates via motor freight so you can easily stage at your building site. Easily house up to 30 hens with a double protected roosting compartment. Speaking of compartments, a single compartment integrated storage shed provides ample room for feed storage, rakes, or other chicken keeping items. Best in class watering, feeding and dual automatic door systems are included in the price. There is both an automatic door for the run if free ranging is desired, as well as to a protected walk-in roost area that provides a second layer of predator protection at nighttime. Updraft ventilated monitor style roof assures adequate airflow, assembles from the ground, and looks great. It’s constructed from a unique 2-part CNC carved easy to assemble joist system and covered with a SunTuf® Polycarbonate roof panel that has a snow load calculation of 32 inches. A CoopWorx 80lb capacity silo feeder and a huge EZ-Fill Watering system make feeding and watering your flock worry free. No cleaning of stinky waterers or messy feeders. “Deep Liter Ready” panels allow for ground level wind protection or the addition of a deep liter ground cover for extremely cold climate chicken keepers that wish to utilize this method. Built with all galvanized metal hardware and all-weather advanced joinery methods. Rugged long-lasting tangible quality. “20 year class”service life performance via cedar and heavy-duty galvanized hardware and dipped bottom rails. Made with heavy-duty 16-gauge galvanized predator-proof welded wire factory stapled top cedar frames. Nothing is stronger, longer lasting, or easier.

- Regional Info
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 2-6Snow/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 7-10Living 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. 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. See the Easy-Fill Waterer & Storm Panel accessory pages for your model coop for more details. An immersiable heater such as the one featured can be purchased from Amazon here.
