Compare Chicken Coops

Carolina Coop

Our "panelized" chicken coops are fabricated in our climate controlled shop and shipped to you in panels (each henhouse wall or run section is a panel). This is to ensure it can get through gates, maneuver through wooded areas or around hardscaping. The advantage is most of the assembly is done, leaving a nice weekend project for you to complete.  Depending on the size of the coop and your skill level, this is typically an 8 hour project for the average homeowner.


Carolina Coop Kits

The Carolina Coop Kit includes NO pre-fabrication prior to shipping. It includes everything you will need to build you coop, piece by piece. All lumber is cut to size and predrilled, roofing is cut to size and predrilled, hardware cloth is cut to size, all hardware, waterproof wood glue, High Density Polyethylene, polycarbonate for windows, and specialty bits are included in your kit.
