Clean out chicken litter easier
One of the best options to add to your chicken coop is the epoxy floor. Adding this option relieves some of the stress and hassle of raising chickens to make your life just a little easier. This surface provides a non stick surface so the chicken manure and debris does not stick or stain your chicken coops floor. Making your coop stay beautiful for years and years to come. Even better, this floor option stretches to the nesting boxes for even better coverage. This option is a great addition to any chicken coop size but is especially great for new chicken raisers!
Add extra coop ventilation
Adding ventilation to your coop is key for you and your chickens. No one wants to open the door and have the strong smell of manure launch to their nose as well as you chickens need fresh air. While all of our coops come standard with a drop vent, add this chicken mesh door for added ventilation. This door is an insert that fits inside the entry door of your coop.
It’s great for two reasons, one obviously for great ventilation and a full open span for nice air circulation. Also great so you can open the door without the worry your chickens will sprint out and free themselves from the coop unprotected. The door is made with the same chicken wire we use in our chicken coop runs so it is strong, sturdy, and you won’t have to worry about the chickens pecking through the wire! This is a great addition to a small chicken coop.
Add a chicken coop run area
For coops that don’t have a run area, adding one is very beneficial to you and your chickens! Leaving them with a sound peace at mind that your chickens are safe, secure, and comfortable in their coop. protect them from predators such as foxes and even dogs that come into your yard periodically. A run area can come in many sizes and styles to find the best one for you. Pictured to the left is a 6×6 dutch style coop with a 7x6x3 detached run area. Just because you see a coop without a run you love doesn’t mean you can’t add one! Add this to your small chicken coop and rest assured your chickens will be safe at all times.
