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. It includes an industrial light, one receptacle, 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.
Heavy Duty Nesting Box Latches
A set of two Heavy Duty Nesting Box Latches are rubber latches added to either side of your exterior nesting boxes lid. This prevents animals like sneaky raccoons from opening your lid and accessing your eggs and chickens. This is only available for coops in the Quaker and Dutch styles.
The Solar Powered Light is available with a timer. It comes with a solar panel that will not be installed by the builders because of the chance of breakage during the transit of your coop. The Solar Light Package will only power a light in your chicken coop. You will not be able to plug a heater into it. In fact, heaters take so much power that we do not have a solar powered heating option for your chicken coop. Customers who want heat will need to have electricity in their coops.
Advanced Auto Chicken Door – Solar
The Advanced Auto Chicken Door – Solar w/ Battery Back-up 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. It 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.
The solar panel that powers the auto chicken door comes boxed inside the coop. It is one of the few items that you will need to set-up when you receive your coop from us. The solar panel should be placed outside the coop where it can receive the most sunlight. The auto chicken door also has a battery backup in case there isn’t enough energy from the solar panel on any given day.
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.

Combination Coop Additions
Wire Under Run
Wire Under the Run is a great way to make sure that burrowing animals do not have access to your chickens. The wire can be covered with sand that you can rake clean for regular cleaning and change out annually. Chickens will still be able to scratch around and be safe too. We use ½” x 1/2’” vinyl coated galvanized wire for this option.
Wire on Run Sides
Wire on Run Sides uses smaller 1/2″ x 1/2″ vinyl coated galvanized wire on the sides of the run on combination coops. This wire keeps your chickens safe by preventing predators from reaching inside your run.
Hinged 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.
