Top customer reviews
We have an older model (spring 2013) - a newer one came out with different roofs for the nest boxes (I'll call them NB's). I read the review saying that the coop was great when in pouring rain. I find this surprising since ours leaked into the NB's (at the roof joint) like a sieve - inches of water. The company, however, sent the newer replacement roofs at no cost. This was good! So anyone with this issue should call them.
Other problems are that the perches are too close to the NB's, so the chickens poop into the front of the NB's overnight. This is a pain in the neck as the NB's need to be cleaned more often, esp for clean eggs. Also, I think the NB's are too small. My hens wouldn't nest in them and laid eggs on the floor. When I took out the removable partition between each set of 2 NB's, the hens started using the NB's. But this meant that there were only 2 usable NB's, not 4. If you have 10-12 hens (the advertised size), there may not be enough NB's. This is made worse as there's no place for a feeder (an inside one is, imho, a necessity as wild birds and vermin will easily find outside feed). I put a feeder in one of the NB's (before divider removal). That meant only 1 NB left since the hens won't use the too-small one by the feeder. Sometimes an egg still gets laid on the floor as the 1 NB was in use when the chicken wanted it. Also,the pooping in the NB problem from perches means that they're also pooping in the feeder, since the feeder extends to the front of the NB.
Formex needs to re-design the coop with bigger NB's and either put perches farther from the NB's or make the inside wider. If one of the original NB's is used as a feeder area, then I think 3 NB's would still be enough for 12 hens. Formex could even sell an option for a specially designed inside feeder that fits a NB.
I gave it 3 stars because the coop is, indeed, easy to clean, both inside and outside. And, hopefully, the new roofs won't leak, so it will be weatherproof. Plus no maintenance (ie painting) or repairs (which wooden coops can need) should be needed. I'd definitely recommend making the stand, too. Makes things much easier.
Does not leak. Was easy to put together with the instructions. I'm not a very "handy" person but I had no trouble. I think being made in USA means instructions are written well to be understood by USA customers.
We did build a stand for it and it got blown over so I took the legs off and just let it sit on the frame but I do have it enclosed in a fenced area for protection.
It's easy to take apart and move and then put back together if you remember which side goes where.
Super easy to clean and for egg collection. I have a lot of chickens besides the ones who roost in it at night and some of the other hens use it to lay eggs so nest boxes are fine.
It has Karabiners for locks which I don't usually like because I have trouble making them work but these are great and easy to use.
If you want it off the ground you need to build a frame with legs but it also includes excellent instructions to make the frame.
We don't feed our chickens inside their coops but you could put food in one side of the nest boxes if you wanted to or under it if you have it on a frame with legs.
I will probably buy another one eventually because it's easy to clean, sturdy and will not rot like my wood coops. Here in OR we have a lot of rain.
Shipment arrived quickly via FedEx. Hubby put unit together in about 1/2 hour, with no glitches, other than he said the top was a bit tricky to put on. The unit is so accessible. The trays are easy to get at as are the next boxes. Cleaning will be a breeze. It is well insulated for our below zero winter Montana weather. I like that the roof is grey in color, which will deflect the Summer heat. Hubby also made the stand for me, so I don't have to bend over to care for the coop and collect eggs and also so we can clean it easily when the snow piles up. He added bottom supports to the frame and walls on 3 sides so the chickens would have some shade in the summer and protection from sub zero temps in the winter wind during the daytime.
We bought a feeder to put in one of the nest boxes (Pet Chow Tower--he had to cut the top down to size at an angle to fit the next box, but it will be easy to fill).
My girls love the new coop, too! Because of the unique design, this coop has plenty of space for my 6 large breed chickens but only has a small footprint. My girls run free inside my fenced garden area. I have raised covered beds so I have control over where they go. Not a bug or grasshopper in sight, since they have been patrolling the garden area for me. They are like the chicken police! Free fertilizer and a clean up crew for each raised bed when I am through with it.
We tore down our old wooden A frame coop that we built in favor of this Formex Snap Lock Coop. A bit pricey, but you wont be disappointed if you get it.
