We calculate hen population based on ~4 ft² per bird run space (free range by Gov’t standards) adequate roost bar space, egg box space, and quantity and number of feed and water units. You add extra space because you’re being extra generous on space, or you’re adding room for extra hens in an optional configuration.

- Live Somewhere Really Cold?
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. There are links to buy the heaters that fit from Amazon or other stores.
- What to Expect

We realize our coop is a significant investment for most people and take seriously making sure you’re satisfied and hope you will tell others.

Delivery – Your exact ship date is shown after placing order and in your order confirmation email. You should expect to receive large boxes or on larger or assembled coops a palletized motor freight shipment. Coop Assembly & Setup – Written instructions are provided with every coop and on each coops product page too. We get calls with questions from less than 5% of customers when they are setting up their new coop.

In the rare event that there is shipping damage, a missing part or a mis-manufactured part, we ship out a new part right away. We hand-make your coop so it is possible that we make a mistake. It is rare, but it does happen. Coop assembly overview videos are available on-line at YouTube.

We expect that you will contact us with questions about chicken keeping until you know what you need to know to be comfortable. We as a family have hundreds of hens at any point in time, and use our coops to house many of them. Chickens are incredibly hardy and after you get to know how it all works you’ll be amazed how little effort it is and how much fun it can be. Each of the instruction sets have particular suggestions for getting started with that coop.
- Gravity Feeders
A note about gravity style feeders…
Our new EZ-Fill Feeder² is improved and will easily hold a long weekends worth of food. Gravity feeders are a class of feeders that, as the name implies, rely on gravity to dispense feed. Chickens eat, and more falls down. ANY gravity feeder can clog, although our new EZ-Fill Feeders² fight this tendency.
In high humidity areas, with certain feeds, during certain seasons of the year, our feeders can clog too. If a feeder did clog, shaking the feeder will almost all the time dislodge the food. Feed absorbs moisture. Some feeds contain anti-clumping agents to keep them from absorbing moisture during manufacturing and those feeds do best. Many times, more expensive organic feeds do not have anti clumping agents in them, and are in fact, more susceptible to clogging.Experiment with different feeds that are available in your area to discover what’s best. But you will no doubt, sooner or later, need to shake tap or poke at the feed to dislodge it. Customers report feed stored in original paper feed bags clogs less. At least with our Easy-Fill Feeders, you’re doing it from outside the coop 🙂

- Pros & Cons
Pluses & Minuses of the Round-Top Backyard Chicken Coop™:
After selling thousands of coops in all 50 states to a variety of people keeping a broad range of chickens in our coops we've learned a thing or two and would love to share. While this list certainly isn't perfect or exhaustive we hope it can help shape expectations and help you make more informed decisions about which of our products are best for you. Due to not being a walk-in coop it more cost effectively uses run and roost space for the birds. Height is below most 6 foot fences and therefore can't be seen by neighbors. Front panel removes for easy "rake-out" cleaning of droppings from ground. Coop is heavy duty and is extremely predator safe. All cedar construction is unmatched in strength, weather capable, and can be water stained or left natural. Will last many years. Due to not being a walk-in coop you will not be protected from weather when caring for your birds. Front panel raking access is easy, but not as easy as a full height walk-in style coop. Necessity of ramp placement will collect droppings that need scraping off. Due to its heavy duty construction... it's pretty difficult to easily move around. Will take 2-3 very strong people to lift. Cedar is one of the most expensive woods you can buy.
