Chicken Coop Options

You and your flock may have unique needs, and all our sheds and coops are customizable to fit those needs. Our enclosures are perfect for chickens seeking shelter in any kind of weather. We know how important it is to winterize your coop for healthy chickens in the colder months and have proper ventilation in the warmer months, so we’ve designed our chicken homes with those needs in mind. We offer several options when ordering your standard chicken coop to further enhance your chickens’ lives year-round, but contact us for details if you are looking for more customization! We would be happy to discuss more options.
Coloring

Want your chicken house to match the color of your home or outbuildings? We offer custom paint matching options for our standard LP® SmartSide® siding. Take the worry out of adding a new chicken coop to your home, knowing that we can work to match your outdoor space and align the look of your new enclosure with your preferred aesthetic!

Ventilation

Depending on the size of your flock, you may want to increase ventilation by adding extra windows or vents. Extra vents help to keep air circulating to prevent excess moisture and heat from building up inside your coop. Additional windows give your hens more access to sunlight, which is a crucial component for good egg production.

Doors

Our chicken coops come standard with two access doors, but if you worry about the wellbeing of your chickens, consider adding an auto-shut, auto-open chicken door to increase safety and security. Give yourself peace of mind when it comes to your chicken house.

Chicken Run

Chickens love to spend time outdoors! Keep your growing flock safe from predators while they are outside with a modular run system. We offer chicken run systems starting at 5’x5′, but we can work with you to build any size run you need so your chickens have adequate space to roam.

Chicken Coop FAQs

Proper chicken coop maintenance involves providing a clean place for egg production, as hens can be very fussy about where they lay their eggs. A dirty chicken coop can cause your hens to stop laying eggs or even get sick. Regularly changing bedding and nesting box material is a to-do for your chicken coop cleaning list. You also need to keep your chickens’ water and food supplies clean and fresh daily.

Less frequently, you will need to deep clean your chicken coop by removing everything from the coop and starting fresh. You should remove the bedding, nesting box material, feeders, and waterers. Once you’ve removed everything, it’s time to clean the chicken coop with a disinfectant.

Fencing in your chicken coop is not required, but you need to ensure that your flock is safe from predators. Having a fenced space provides shelter from ground predators, like foxes. When installing your backyard chicken coop’s fencing, you can also extend it underground to ward off any burrowing predators, as well.

Note that fencing in your flock does not protect your chickens from birds of prey, like hawks. Having a roof over the run that protects against larger predatory birds is essential for your flock’s safety. If you live in an area that hosts larger predators, having a guard dog or even an electric fence for added defense is a strong recommendation.

Learn More About Making Your Coop Its Best

To keep your chickens both healthy and happy, there are some chicken coop design considerations you need to know. These are a few basics to get you started with raising backyard chickens!

Nesting Boxes – Chickens like to sleep up off the ground. Typically you’re looking to house between 3-4 chickens per nesting box.

Feed & Water – A clean space for the chickens to get their feed and water is essential. It will still get dirty, but you want a place that won’t get too much filth mixed that is also easy to access for cleaning.

Free Space – Your chickens are going to need at least 3-4 feet of space between them in their chicken runs. If they’re going to spend the majority of their time in the run and not outside, you’ll need to make sure they have enough space.

Heating Lamp – For the colder winter months, your coop will need a heating source to keep the chickens from getting too cold. Usually, a 60-watt lamp will generate enough heat if your coop is insulated and built solid enough.

Ventilation – Proper ventilation helps both your chickens and yourself. The coop needs to let musty air out and fresh air in. Mitigating the smell is just a courtesy for everyone.

About Our Standard Chicken Coops

Your chickens are as unique as you are, and they deserve a beautiful home with adequate space, room to roam, and a place to relax—just like the rest of your family. At Sun Rise Sheds, we know each chicken has its own personality and needs, so we designed our chicken coops with you and your flock in mind.

You need a building that makes egg collection easily accessible, so our 8’x8’ chicken coop with a 6’6” inside wall gives your chickens chickens room to move and gives you the space to enter the enclosure when you need to! When the building is easily accessible to you, collecting eggs is much easier.

The size of our standard coop is spacious enough to discourage birds from becoming territorial and fighting, but is small enough that they will not get cold in the winter due to underutilized space. Our standard coops include the following features:

  • 12′ of roost rail
  • Community nesting box
  • Four windows with 1/2″ hardware cloth
  • Access doors for you and your chickens
  • Two 8″x8″ vents

Are you worried that our standard-size coop isn’t large enough for your breed of chickens or the size of your flock? Our expert builders can craft a henhouse that better suits your needs. Just give us a call, and our craftsmen will get started on building a coop that perfectly houses your entire flock.
