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, but our base model coops use an accepted space calculation.

- 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.

- Design Concept
Key Design Concepts for the Round-Top Mobile Coop :
The driving force behind the Mobile coop was portability without the difficulty and trouble of wheels. Many of our customers want the ability to “scoot” their coops around, or flat out put them up in the garage or barn when nasty weather comes around. We also wanted to make a more affordable Round-Top Coop™ for those people who didn’t need more than 4 chickens or who wanted a truly kid sized coop. Up to 4 chickens in standard form and an optional run extension for more space. Excellent cold or hot climate performance. External access to water, feed and egg collections. Super stealth height and kid friendly too. Ships to a customer's door not a freight terminal. Two people can easily lift up and carry to a new location. Elegant style and obvious attention to craftsmanship. High predator resistance. Modular design allowing basic coop to be added to over time. 10+ year service life performance via cedar and heavy duty galvanized hardware. Quick easy assembly with only a cordless drill. Built-in storm protection for roost area. Made in USA and as many materials as possible sourced in N. America. No-Poop 4+ day supply waterer that can be freeze protected. No-Poop 4+ day supply feeder. 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.

- 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 🙂
