Key Design Concepts for the Round-Top Walk-In Coop :
The Round-Top Walk-In™ Chicken Coop was originally an answer to one particular great customer who lived up north tending to his flock in the snowy cold winters. What we built has been copied but not equaled and has exceeded everyone's imagination on how popular they've become. Designed to hold 20 hens, plenty of room for more if you turn out, and hold copious amounts of water and feed. Nothing looks more rich than a Walk-In Coop and nothing compares to the convenience of so much room. Up to 20 chickens in standard form and an optional sun-room for even more space. Excellent cold or hot climate performance. External access to water, feed and egg collections. Full standing height headroom and easy access wide-door. Roost bar space for up to 30 hens if a customer were to provide free range time. Super large egg boxes that could be collected from inside or out and offered easy access large cleanout doors. Elegant style and obvious attention to craftsmanship. High predator resistance. 10+ year service life performance via cedar and heavy duty galvanized hardware. ~8-12 Hour assembly by 2 people and with only a cordless drill and a hammer. Built-in storm protection for roost area and optional snow protection with storm panels for the entire coop. Made in USA and as many materials as possible sourced in N. America. No-Poop 4+ day supply optional waterer that can be freeze protected. No-Poop 4+ day supply optional 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.

It’s pretty much over the top! The Round-Top Walk-In Chicken Coop is featured in upscale homes all over the country. It will look great in any setting and spoil you and your chickens with more room, more features and awesome attention to detail.

Handcrafted from 100% Real Cedar. Will last many years with or without painting. Pre-drilled holes, can be assembled in about 8-12 hours by two people with only a cordless drill and a measuring tape. Screw bits and everything else you need is in the box. Shipped in individual palletized boxes via freight so you can easily stage at your building site. Provides two 8 foot long roost bars for sleepy hard working hens. Your girls deserve a roost like they get in nature. The walk-in design is ergonomically friendly. Requires little or no stooping or bending over to manage your hens and you can get inside out of the weather too. Updraft ventilated roost. Assures the respiratory health and safety of your hens in hot or cold climates. No stinky poop trays. Poop composts on the ground and can be easily raked up. Optional integrated Easy Fill Feeder Quad and huge Easy Fill Watering system available. 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. Keep up to 20 hens full-time in this coop in its standard configuration, up to 25 with optional Sunroom run extension. 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 there is.
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.

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 🙂
