Our Epoxy Floor is super resilient to damage and moisture making coop cleaning much easier. It is a smooth surface with a little texture. The application process requires four steps so it is a very high quality finish that is durable and will last. This option is more about convenience and keeping your coop clean, and it one of our top options so we’ve included it in most of our options packages.
Wire Over Windows
Wire over the Windows is essential to keep raccoons from getting your chickens. We use 1/2” x 1/2” vinyl coated galvanized wire for this option. The wire is put on from the outside because raccoons typically push inward so the wire will resist their attempts at chicken access longer. This option is essential for safety so we’ve included it in all of our options packages.
Electric Package w/ Timer
The Electric Package can be used to power the heaters and auto chicken doors for the Warm Coop Options Package. It includes an industrial light, one recepticle, and a switch or timer. Many people use the outlets to plug in a heated water bowl or their own space heaters in winter. Fun fact: our electric package is wired by an Amish electrician on Thursdays. As you may know, fires in chicken coops can be devastating and that is why we are serious about creating a safe way for you to have power in your coop. The wiring we provide for you is professionally installed and secured to help keep your chickens safe.
Removable Roosting Bars
A Finished Interioris a key component in a totally sanitizable, washable, chicken coop interior. We customize vinyl paneling to the interior of your coop, use plastic molding, and give it a watertight seal in all seams and openings. You will also have washable poly nesting box dividers.
Exhaust Fan w/ Thermostat
Keep your chicken coop ventilated with an Electric Exhaust Fan w/ Thermostat. Our coops come standard with ventilation lids but chicken coops gather a large amount of moisture and ammonia in both winter and summer. The addition of a mechanical exhaust system will help to pull air through the coop and keep fumes and moisture levels down.
Advanced Auto Chicken Door – Electric
The Advanced Auto Chicken Door – Electric will help keep your chickens locked safely inside the coop at night and give them access to their run during the day. You won’t have to worry that the coop is closed at night if you’re out at dinner or the movies.
The Advanced Auto Chicken Door comes installed in your coop. When you have the electric package it will be connected to an outlet on the chicken door side of the coop.
The Advanced Auto Chicken Door has data tables that tell it when sunrise and sunset is in your area (as chickens go in and out of the coop based on daylight). You set the door to open and close based on the timing you want. Set-up is simple and takes five to ten minutes.
Double Clean-out Lid w/ Litter Tray
The Double Clean-out Lid w/ Litter Trays are a fantastic way to do weekly hen house cleanings without the hassle of removing the litter from the entire coop. This option includes two lids, that run along the back of the coop. The lowest one allows the customer to open the lid and sweep out any mess that gets on the floor of the coop. The second lid is just above the first and allows access to the litter tray. The litter tray is a lightweight but thick and durable poly. These trays sit just under the roosting bars, the area where the chickens sleep at night, so the bulk of the waste is exactly under the roosting bars. We add wire under the roosting bars to prevent chickens from sitting in the tray and making themselves messy.
Combination Coop Additions
Hinged Combo Run Clean-Out
For Combination Style chicken coops we have added a Hinged Clean-Out for the area of run below the coop. This allows easy access to the run under the coop for cleaning and to grab any stray eggs. This is also offered w/ Chicken Defender Wire.
