►Round-Top Coops™ Are Different...

Bargain brand coops are not a bargain for long. Our coops are more durable, which means they last. But it also means they're predator safe places for chickens to live. Our coops are methodically thought out and have deliberate advantages that save you time and make a healthier place to keep chickens. They're among the best coops money can buy. We hope you decide they're right for you...but call us if you have questions. Our #1 goal is to make sure our coops are a good fit for your needs and meet your expectations. Here are 10 things to know about Round-Top Coops™.

circles-wood Wood - US Western Red Cedar
Cedar will last outdoors many, many years painted or not. It's not chemically treated yet naturally resists rot and bugs. It's very strong.
circles-hardware Hardware - Exterior Grade Galvanized
Heavy gauge exterior grade hardware is much more predator proof and will last a long time.
circles-wire Wire - Welded Galvanized Livestock
It's at least 4X stronger than hardware cloth found on most every other coop.
circles-predator Joinery - Old School Carpentry
Beautiful, strong, outdoor-proof methods will hold up over time and we guarantee it.
circles-roof Roof - Galvalume™ 5V Crimp
Patented Galvalume™ won't rust, reflects radiant heat, stays cool. Nothing is stronger than metal.

circles-design Designs – Beautiful & Practical
We lean towards highly ventilated, roomy, minimal opening designs with weatherproof roosts and open sunny runs. Sunlight is a disinfectant and stimulates egg production too.
circles-climate Winters Multi-Climate Versatility
Only use when needed. Magnetically attach Storm Panels in freezing winds and snow. Translucent, lets sun in. Healthy.
circles-support Support – Chickens Are Our Passion
We’re basically chicken keeping consultants to our customers. We provide unlimited help. We use our coops every single day.
circles-waterer Waterers – Integrated No-Poop
Convenient, overhead no poop, outside fill, can be freeze-proofed, food grade, hold a lot, can add extras, takes up no run space. Saves time.
circles-feeder Feeders – Integrated No-Poop
Convenient, vertical no poop, outside fill, weather resistant, food grade, hold a lot, takes up minimal run space. Saves time.
If our coops are in your budget, they’re actually a great value. We don’t try to fool you with “free shipping” that we both know isn’t free. Well made coops are very heavy, shipping them is not cheap. We don’t try to trick you about where they’re made, size or capacities of our coops. We respect your intelligence.

Thanks for shopping!

► Product Short Description...

Meet the Leghorn Layer Hen…
She’s not the fanciest hen in the chicken world, but there is without question no more productive egg laying hen than a Leghorn. The only thing close is a Hybrid-Layer which is a Leghorn cross that lays brown rather than white eggs.  Leghorns are almost 100% responsible for the white eggs you find in stores.  They lay more often, longer and on less feed and water than any other breed.  They are relatively small-bodied in comparison to the size of the eggs they lay. They are prized for their eggs, not their meat.  The Round-Top Sustain Chicken Coop™ is purpose built to house 20 Leghorns yielding a dozen eggs or more a day on average.  This coop is designed as a self contained, self sustained system to house hens and several roosters for deployment in Haiti. With roosters and the optional brooder / grow-out box, you can rejuvenate your flock too, setting up a truly self-contained / self-sustained poultry eco-system.  

If you plan to use a dual purpose or other larger bodied birds, you may want to cut back the population to 15 or so.  The coop is set up for multi-climate use and features built-in wing doors on the roost. The run area is a balance of open and covered spaces to both let in disinfecting sunlight and cover for shade and rain protection. Large clear-span doors allow for easy raking of the run or free range turnout. And this coop, like all of our coops, is built to last.  Whether it’s food independence, an educational setting, or just a highly pragmatic way of housing 15-20 hens… it would be hard to beat a Round-Top Sustain™.

► Live Somewhere Really Cold ?

A Bright Way To Keep Out The Cold Winds & Snow In The Winter... Take Them Off When Things Warm Up!

Storm Panels block out snow, wind and wind driven rain but still let critical light in.

Storm Panels block out snow, wind and wind driven rain but still let critical light in.

multi-climate-1Live somewhere cold? No problem, we've got you covered... literally! Almost every breed of adult chicken when kept dry and out of the wind chill are very, very cold hardy... even in sub zero temperatures. So if you can keep the water from freezing, the snow from accumulating in the run areas and keep sub zero winds off your flock...they're good to go. And our panels let in critical light during short winter days.
 Keep The Water From Freezing Too...

Coop waterers are shipped with a slotted cap that allows the water to breathe air as the water goes down.

We make the slot big enough to allow a cord of an immersible heater to go through too.

See the Easy-Fill Waterer accessory page for your model coop for more details. There are links to buy the heaters that fit from Amazon.

What to Expect After the Sale

Whether you're a first time backyard chicken rancher or a seasoned veteran, we want you to have a premiere experience with Urban Coop Company. We realize our coop is a significant investment for most people and take seriously making sure you're satisfied and hope you will tell others.

First Contact - If you don't order from us over the phone, you should expect an email or call after you place your order on our site to let you know we got your order and that we understand everything correctly.

Delivery - Your expected ship time-frame is in your order confirmation email. You should expect to receive  fairly large boxes (2 Mobile, 3 Backyard, 6 Backyard-Duplex, 11 Walk-In... and more if you ordered extensions) to be delivered to your home or other designated place. Each box is from 40-135 lbs but no one part in the box weighs more than 20 lbs. If your boxes were to get rained on, it would certainly be soggy, but no harm would come to your new coop.

Coop Assembly & Setup - Written instructions are provided with every coop and on each coops product page too.  We get calls with questions from less than 5% of customers when they are setting up their new coop. Just know that if for any reason you need help, we answer our phone at all but the rudest of hours and are happy to assist. In the rare event that there is shipping damage, a missing part or a mis-manufactured part, we ship out a new part right away. We hand make your coop so it is possible that we make a mistake.  It is rare, but it does happen. Coop assembly overview videos are available on-line at YouTube.

Getting Your Hens Situated - If you're not already experienced, we expect that we will be one of your main resources for you to get comfortable with keeping hens. We expect that you will contact us with questions about chicken keeping until you know what you need to know to be comfortable. We as a family have hundreds of hens at any point in time, and use our coops to house many of them. Chickens are incredibly hardy and after you get to know how it all works you'll be amazed how little effort it is and how much fun it can be. Each of the instruction sets have particular suggestions for getting started with that coop.

* We do not advocate keeping only 1 bird by itself unless it is for isolation / quarantine reasons.
Note On Counts: Bantams and Silkies are considerably smaller than average sized chickens. Average sized hens are common bred Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, Sex Links, Ameraucanas, Leg Horns, Wyndotts, Asutralorps, most Orpingtons and similar. We consider some of the larger breeds to be Brahmas, Jersey Giants and the like. Many show bred chickens are genetically larger than their common bred relatives. Over crowding any coop can cause health risks to the birds because of (among other things) ventilation concerns and will make it to where you have to clean more frequently. Free range time is during the day-time hours and assumes 2-3 hours per day 50% of the week or more. Space for chickens is a very, very personal decision that takes in factors of perceived humaneness which we of course cannot measure. We offer these numbers as a guide based on our considerable experience, industry standards on ft2/bird and guidance from poultry academia. Rounding down can never hurt (we do not advocate keeping only one bird alone) and we do not recommend going any higher than stated counts.

A little more about how we count...

Combinations are based on (1) reasonable available roost space (2) egg box space and (3) ground impact. When we design a coop we target a minimum of 4 ft2 per averaged sized bird assuming them getting no free range time. This number is for ground impact reasons and assumes you have good drainage and the ground drys up between occasional rains.

The above numbers favor run space regardless of roost or egg box space. Run space is a very, very personal decision. Many coop makers certainly provide less than our 4 ft2 per bird (averaged sized) target for run space.  Our chicken keeping experience says 4 ft2 per hen is an acceptable number for healthy averaged sized hens that are caged 100% of the time and for things not to get too smelly.  If you have the space and the budget, adding run extensions is always a great thing. It can never hurt assuming the additional space is equally predator proof to your main coop.

Our numbers are next controlled by roost space.  In hot weather hens spread out a little, and conversely, in cold weather they will cuddle up more.  The numbers we use are for average sized hens in a broad range of temperatures. Hens are very communal and will often all gang up on one roost bar even if there are two.  Some coops don't even provided roost bars.  Ours do because it is the natural best way for your hens to sleep at night.

Egg box space is not a limiting factor in any of the above stated scenarios.  Certainly chickens have personalities like people, and some hens are more picky and dominant about egg laying privacy, but in general chickens share a space together or just wait their turn for egg laying. Again, hens are very communal creatures.

Egg production ranges assume 5 eggs per week as a low and 6-7 as a high. Some areas of the country have longer off seasons for molting birds. Daylight hours, feed quality and age of hens also effect lay rates. And of course breeds. For example, Leghorns are laying machines compared to most other breeds and will regularly lay an egg every day. Some breeds may only lay 2-3 eggs per week and that is normal for that breed.
