Chickens everywhere will love it!
We own pretty much all of the Round-Top Chicken Coops™ and the new loft has some great features. For it’s size, it’s pretty easy to assemble and there’s tons of room inside for me and the hens. Living in Washington, we get a lot of rain, snow and hot days too. This coop stays dry and with storm panels, winter snow is under control. When it’s not freezing outside, the open design of all the Round-Top Coops™ are great because you can see and enjoy your hens. What’s not to love? Will easily house 10 standard sized hens with ample room for both you and your girls. How fun to have a Western Red Cedar Coop sitting under some of my Western Red Cedar trees !!!

- Design Concept & Key Points
A Crazy Smart & Easy Way to Keep 10 Hens
We wanted to create a mid $3,000 dollar high-quality walk-in style coop that could hold at least 10 hens and it turned out that an A-Frame design did the trick. After 400+ hours of 3D CAD design and prototyping, new innovative CNC machining techniques, and sub-assemblies to reduce assembly time... we were happy 🙂 The main idea of this coop is to be able to house 10 hens for the best bird/dollar price, ship wisely, and assemble more easily. We have thousands of satisfied customers all over the US and Canada and are confident our coops will be a big part of the joy you will get from your backyard flock and look great doing it year after year.

- 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. There are links to buy the heaters that fit from Amazon or other stores.
