Rated 1 out of 5 by emue although pretty, dangerous for chickens
This coop is quite lovely in its rustic look, however it would not be safe for chickens. The type of wire mesh used in this coop is wrong type. Chicken coops should always be made with hard wire cloth to prevent rodents and predators from getting into the coop. this is pretty basic chicken keeping knowledge. This very basic design flaw makes me question the integrity of the rest of the coop.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ajfinn My modern chickens hated this
I was so excited to receive this as a gift, but when I put my chickens in their new home, they basically went berserk. My favorite chicken, Henry, (who is actually a girl obviously but it's a long story) led the rest of the coop into a full-blown mutiny. I think it was the quaint, almost amish design to the coop that really set them off. My chickens are modern chickens- classy ladies who live in this century and aren't about to set themselves back 150 years just to get a little street cred with the hipster chicks over in Williamsburg with their organic, local chicken feed and ironic waddles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chiquita22 Not safe for chickens
Although this coop is adorable, "chicken" wire is not as predator proof as 1/2" hardware cloth. A raccoon can put its fingers through a space that is greater than 1/2" and pull the chicken (or portions of) through the fencing. It's not pretty. This coop is too expensive to have to retrofit with the proper wire.
