My first impression of this coop is that its looking pretty solid. It traveled well in shipping luckily. Assembly took 4 of us around 30 min. The issues I had with it are the awful silicone job that doesn't actually fill any gaps, its somehow glossed without actually filling anything and its pretty consistent across the whole coop, I will have to fix it, 2 of the door handles were not adjusted correctly and they needed to be removed and reinstalled to lock and prop open properly, and the 2 vents were only attached with one small drop of glue and they were not attached anymore upon arrival. These are all relatively small issues that I'm capable of fixing but still something that bothers me with such a hefty price tag. Overall my birds seem to be enjoying it and I think its looking promising.
The nesting box latch is out of alignment. Minor problem. Biggest problem was both roof panels were the same instead of opposing. Had to remove the metal edges and reverse.
We have this exact coop, we have had it for about 2 yrs, put it together ourselves, with no issues. This one it looks like they got very sloppy, the lid over the nesting boxes was not put on properly and will not close tightly and a screw on the roof did not match up with the board like it's supposed to, which is not such a big deal. The nesting box lid is what concerns me. I had wanted to order at least one more of these coops, I guess I need to rethink it
Quick shipping and easy to put together! Wife and grand kids love it!
I bought a small coop for my illegal chickens two years ago and thought I sealed it well. It rotted apart. Just bought this one and used marine varnish spar polyurethane inside and out. Very well built. I wish I had seen this one first years ago.
It seems my 3 star rating isn’t showing up so I’m posting it with 5. The instructions are terrible and made putting this together frustrating. There were two gaps im not sure if they were a flaw in our coop itself or in the design. We will have to close those up for winter. The large door was not cut properly so it is a pain to open and close, something else we will need to fix on our own. Also the locks are flimsy so will be replacing those as well. I was a bit annoyed as I wasn’t expecting to need to make any renovations to this coop and the whole frustrating process of putting it together wasn’t great. That’s where this 3 star rating comes from. Besides that it is sturdy and comfortable for my chickens so all in all and all right buy esp if you’re willing to renovate a little.
This cool is all right it is definitely sturdy and all but it was annoying to put together. The instructions aren’t great. The latches aren’t super secure so I would suggest putting new ones on to better lock up your chickens safely. Also the door on ours was not cut properly and is a pain to open and close. So we will have to fix that as well as having had to change the locks. Also there are two spots with little gaps we will have to close up in time for winter, not sure if that was a flaw in our personal coop or the design. All in all this is an all right purchase if you’re willing to modify a bit. I wasn’t expecting to need to so I’m a bit annoyed and putting it together was frustrating so that’s where my rating comes from. It is sturdy though so that’s always good!
Snap Lock™ Regular Chicken Coop (up to 5 chickens)
OverEZ® Medium Chicken Coop Kit (up to 10 chickens)
This is my second OverEZ Chicken Coop Kit. It is easy to assemble and is the most sturdy coop I have ever bought! We love it and will never buy anything else.
My chickens are loving their new chicken coop!!!
I spent about two weeks repainting the coop (I wanted a different color) and redoing some things like the caulk and the nest box lid (which was skewed) but overall a good sturdy coop. I'd have put the window latches on the outside so I don't have to climb into the coop to open/close the windows, and I'm going to add more ventilation, as well as flipping the perches horizontal for my large-breed chickens.
Great product! Would enjoy more vents, perhaps with interior screens. It is important to monitor inside temperature as it seems to absorb heat although under shade, in a covered run.
GREAT COOP. THE RAIN HAS STOP. WE PUT UP THE COOP YESTERDAY. SO FAR SO GOOD. A FEW ISSUES BUT ALL IN ALL EVERYTHING WORKED OUT JUST GREAT.
This is our second OverEz Large Coop, one for me and my chicks and one for my son and his chicks. What an excellent buy! These coops are quality from top to bottom, easy to construct, cozy and safe for chicks, and look great. Customer service has proven exceptional too.
Absolutely perfect for mr four chickens. Providing the ability to change the door latches and hardware so you have configuration options is genius. Thank You
Highly recommend. We looked everywhere and were so glad we choose OverEZ. The coop was easy to put together and much sturdier than other coops we looked at. The customer service is top-notch. Very happy customer here!
So far the door works fine, but installation was tougher than implied -- I had to plane the studs in my OverEZ coop down to fit it. And a 6AaH battery is only going to last 3-4 days! If you look this door up under its manufacturers name, it has an average draw of 2.5 aH per day. So using a battery long term without solar isn't a good option.
This was a well prepared chicken coop. The correct amount of screws, etc. Fit together pretty well. Products used were appropriate and strong.
Only issue was Delivery driver broke the nesting box lid but EZ was very helpful and immediately sent out a new one👍👍
We have not received it yet!
Shipping: Shipping was smooth with no issues. Very good communication with shipping company.
Shipped Product: Bent and stripped nest lid handle that attaches to front of the coup. Random drill holes in the side wall and rear wall. Multiple drill holes not filled near small door handle that holds it open.
Assembly: When complete, the product was not water tight, roof did not line up correctly. Caulking was inconsistent. Additional caulking was need to make water tight. Pre-drilled hole with screws were not in the correct location for the roof (this was not an issue with assembly, the screws and pre-drilled holes were off nearly 2 inches).
Final Product: Final product works after adjustment of screw connection points, additional caulking to reduce water entry, and filling random holes.
Recommendation: I would still recommend this product because it's a good concept but does need better quality control, especially with the price paid for the product.
My Girls Love it!
Excellent chicken coop, my children love living in it.
Simple instructions and good quality. The screws that are provided with this strip out and are horrible. Just use a-25 deck screws 4 in Long and it goes together perfect
