Round-Top Chicken Coops™ have features that assure your success.

Cheap materials and carpentry won't hold up. Round-Top Coops™ are made to be durable, which means they'll last. But it also means they're predator safe strongholds for chickens to live in. Here are 10 things you should know about Round-Top Coops™ that make them better.

  • Wood - Western Red Cedar

    Cedar will last outdoors many, many years. It's not chemically treated yet naturally resists rot and bugs. It's very strong. Native to N. America.

  • Hardware - Exterior Grade Galvanized

    Heavy gauge exterior grade hardware is much more predator proof and will last a long time. Not the flimsy stuff.

  • Wire - Welded Galvanized Livestock

    It's at least 4X stronger than hardware cloth found on most every other coop. A bear might get through but that's about it.

  • Joinery - Old School Carpentry

    Beautiful, strong, outdoor-proof methods will hold up over time and we guarantee it. We're not doing it this way because its fast.

  • Waterers - Integrated No-Poop

    Overhead no poop, outside fill, can be freeze-proofed, food grade, holds a lot, can add extras, takes up no run space. Saves time. Whew!

  • Roof - Galvalume™ 5V Crimp

    Patented Galvalume™ won't rust, reflects radiant heat, stays cool. Nothing is stronger than American Steel.

  • 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.

  • Winters – Multi-Climate Versatility

    Only use when needed. Magnetically attach Storm Panels in freezing winds and snow. Translucent, lets sun in. Healthy.

  • 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.

  • Feeders – Integrated No-Poop

    Convenient, vertical no poop, outside fill, weather resistant, food grade, holds a lot, takes up minimal run space. Saves time. Did we say no-poop!

A self contained mental health machine.

People don't keep chickens because it "saves money". It saves their sanity. Watching and keeping chickens is fun, entertaining and grounds you to the natural world in a way that few other hobbies can. Our different designs solve specific needs, but the quality, durability and craftsmanship (and fun) are all the same in every coop we build.
