Look up anything related to chickens on the Internet and guaranteed the results will include a variety of sites extolling the benefits of fresh, free-range eggs and promoting the exploding trend of folks keeping a small chicken house in the backyard. As more and more suburban (and urban) areas allow people to keep a small flock in the backyard, people are discovering just how good the eggs are and how easy it is to get started in small-scale poultry husbandry.
Horizon Structures' now offers a small pre-built chicken house that is an attractive and affordable way for people to get started in this increasingly popular hobby.
About half of their customers have one thing in common - they have never kept a chicken house before. As a result, they have many questions and concerns about the most important part of keeping chickens: the coop. While Horizon Structures certainly don't claim to be poultry experts, they do know a thing or two about building a chicken house. All of their coops are designed with bird comfort and safety in mind.
Jeanne from Wisconsin writes: "Today, we finally got the 6 Rhode Island Reds all set up in the coop. They figured out to go up the ramp at dusk. Even though they are only 8 weeks old, they explored the nest boxes and tried them out, each in her own box with the sixth chicken in and out of all of them. They looked really sweet all lined up as if waiting patiently for their first egg. They love the height inside the coop and flew all around for the first several hours. Now they are snuggled up together on the roost for the night."
"My husband and I noticed the 1x1 wire on the outside of the windows. Thanks- that was a really good idea and you saved us the trouble. We have every predator imaginable here. The large, bright windows with plenty of natural lighting, excellent cross ventilation and easy (human) accessibility were the reason we chose this coop."
Horizon Structures make the coops "people friendly", too…"The raised design was a really good idea that I appreciated more today that I thought I would. I love the fact that I don't have to bend down to care for them and I know they are secure at night. The area under the coop will be a great place to get out of the rain and to take dust baths, I imagine. I love the black, lockable latches and nest box hook- you thought of every detail. The coop is very attractive and built like Fort Knox."
"Anyway, thanks for all your help. We love the coop and so do the "girls." I cannot even think of anything I would change about it."
This satisfied customer echoes the sentiments Horizon Structures claim to hear over and over again - The coops are well-built, attractive and intelligently designed. They incorporate everything one needs so successfully keep chickens happy, healthy and laying the best eggs ever!
