The 4 x 8 Dutch coop, with its easily accessible nest boxes, works on the same principle as all our other coops.

You don't have to go into the coop to get the eggs... Simply lift the panel and reach inside.

8 roomy nest boxes are easily accessible from outside the coop. Chickens will naturally share the boxes.

Ventilation

4x8 Dutch Coop

The large window on the front of the coop includes glass panes both top and bottom. Raise the lower pane from inside the coop to take advantage of the screen and allow fresh air inside.

Vinyl coated wire mesh, fastened securely on the coop exterior, covers the screened portion of the window.  Any predator would be hard pressed to chew through this barrier.  Chickens stay safe!

Inside the 4x8 Dutch Coop - Nest Boxes

A generous 54" w x 7" h cut-out on the side of the coop allows in even more light and fresh air. Vinyl coated mesh covers the opening and protects the chickens inside the coop from would-be predators.  A hinged wood panel with twist latch allows you to close it tightly when the weather turns bad.


Add Wheels

Horizon Structures Chicken Coop 4x8Adding wheels to any chicken coop is a very popular upgrade.  The wheel chassis is bolted securely to the bottom of the coop and takes the place of the pressure-treated wood legs and base.4x8 Dutch Coop Wheel Detail

The coop wheel option for this model consists of 4 heavy-duty pneumatic tires, powder-coated steel wheel chassis with built-in steering mechanism and a sturdy powder-coated steel handle.

Making your coop mobile allows you to move it to a sheltered location to avoid extreme bad weather, gale force winds or floods.  Or, move it closer to your home to reduce the risk of a fox breaking in.
