Little Barn

Unlike many of the other coops on this list, the Little Barn was inspired by the traditional red barns that come to mind when we think about a farm. Handcrafted in the U.K., the Little Barn is made of fiberglass and is easy to maintain. The roof is hinged and flips up, allowing for easy access for cleaning. To help keep the chickens warm in the winter, the Little Barn is lined with foam insulation, and can be expanded to accommodate up to four chickens. The side-mounted nest boxes are easily accessible, making the job of collecting fresh eggs easy and convenient.
