Reclaimed cedar coop

Modern Coop's chicken coop is at once wonderfully rustic and charmingly contemporary. Paneled with reclaimed cedar boards, the coop has a fiberglass roof and can be easily moved around a yard. The coop can easily be augmented with a mobile run that allows the chickens to scratch without worrying about getting eaten by a dog or raccoon. The chicken coop has a large side door that makes it easy to clean and to collect eggs.
