|Meet the Leghorn Layer Hen…|
|She’s not the fanciest hen in the chicken world, but there is no more productive egg laying hen than a Leghorn. 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. The Round-Top Sustain Chicken Coop™ is purpose built to house 20 Leghorns yielding a dozen eggs or more a day. This coop was 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, setting up a truly self-contained / self-sustained poultry eco-system.|
- 10 Reasons Urban Coop Company Coops Are Worth More...
Bargain brand coops are not a bargain for long. Our coops are heavier, bigger and more durable, which means they last. But it also means they’re predator safe places for chickens to live. Here are 10 things to know about Urban Coop Company™ Coops.
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.
Hardware - Exterior Grade Galvanized
Heavy gauge exterior grade hardware is much more predator proof and will last a long time.
Wire - Welded Galvanized Livestock
It's at least 4X stronger than hardware cloth found on most every other coop.
Joinery - Old School Carpentry
Beautiful, strong, outdoor-proof methods will hold up over time and we guarantee it.
Roof - Galvalume™ 5V Crimp
Patented Galvalume™ won't rust, reflects radiant heat, stays cool. Nothing is stronger than metal.
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.
Waterers - Integrated No-Poop
Convenient, overhead no poop, outside fill, can be freeze-proofed, food grade, hold a lot, can add extras taks up no run space. Saves time.
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.

- Design Concept
Key Design Concepts for the Sustain Poultry™ Chicken Coop :
The Sustain Poultry™ line is envisioned to be a collection of small flock poultry products with a definite eye towards egg production as the primary goal. The Sustain Model 20 Coop is a product of our desire to create a self regenerating small-flock (17 hens and 3 roosters) in as small as space as reasonable and to produce a dozen eggs per day. It had to be good for high winds and loads of rain (hence low profile and built in roost closure) as Haiti is likely to get when hurricanes pass. It was just conceived as being an egg machine. Up to 20 chickens in standard form and an accommodation for brooding out chicks. Excellent cold or hot climate performance. External access to water, feed and egg collections. Extra emphasis on dealing with rain and high winds. Ships to a customer's door not a freight terminal. Obvious attention to craftsmanship. High predator resistance. Available storm panels for snow use. 10+ year service life performance via cedar and heavy duty galvanized hardware. ~5 Hour assembly by 2 people and with only a cordless drill. Built-in weather protection for roost area. Made in USA and as many materials as possible sourced in N. America. No-Poop 4+ day supply optional waterer that can be freeze protected. No-Poop 4+ day supply optional feeder. Value: If you were to source your own materials, design and build a like quality product, the cost and the time would make our price a better deal.

- Live Somewhere Really Cold?
A Bright Way To Keep Out The Cold Winds & Snow In The Winter… Take Them Off When Things Warm Up! Live somewhere cold? No problem, we’ve got you covered. 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 Storm Panels let in critical light during short winter days. Magnetically attach and detach from wired panels.
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 & Storm Panel accessory pages for your model coop for more details. There are links to buy the heaters that fit from Amazon or other stores.

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.

Delivery – Your expected ship date is shown at checkout and in your order confirmation email. You should expect to receive fairly large boxes to be delivered to your home or other designated place. Each box is from 40-80 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. Some roof metal is shipped in longer boxes. 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 In Their New Home – 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.
- Assembly Support

All needed tools and fasteners are included in the box with a set of current instructions. You provide a cordless drill, a measuring tape and some elbow grease. A small level is handy but not required. A level app on your smartphone will work great!Handyman Hotline: If at anytime you (or your handyman) needs support that the instructions or videos don't answer, just call us. You can even have your handyman call us in advance so that when they show up to assemble your coop they're already up to speed. 6.5M Adobe .PDF File V2 Updated 5/30/17
- Gravity Feeders
A note about gravity style feeders…
Our new EZ-Fill Feeder² is improved and will easily hold a long weekends worth of food. Gravity feeders are a class of feeders that, as the name implies, rely on gravity to dispense feed. Chickens eat, and more falls down. ANY gravity feeder can clog, although our new EZ-Fill Feeders² fight this tendency.
In high humidity areas, with certain feeds, during certain seasons of the year, our feeders can clog too. If a feeder did clog, shaking the feeder will almost all the time dislodge the food. Feed absorbs moisture. Some feeds contain anti-clumping agents to keep them from absorbing moisture during manufacturing and those feeds do best. Many times, more expensive organic feeds do not have anti clumping agents in them, and are in fact, more susceptible to clogging.Experiment with different feeds that are available in your area to discover what’s best. But you will no doubt, sooner or later, need to shake tap or poke at the feed to dislodge it. Customers report feed stored in original paper feed bags clogs less. At least with our Easy-Fill Feeders, you’re doing it from outside the coop 🙂
