This review is from: Chicken Coops Imperial Marlborough Large Chicken Coop Suitable 6 to 8 Birds Depending on Size (Misc.)
My 4 ex-battery hens already had an Amazon-bought coop and integrated run. I got these hens to weed my garden, which hens are very good at. Each day, I let them free-range, until the day I had to rescue two that almost found their way out of the garden on to the main road. After that, I kept them in a 7' run during the day, and home to their coop at night. They only had a plastic covering on part of their run if it rained, and nowhere to lay their eggs.
Then I saw the moveable chicken pen from Omlet (ASIN:/B005FLMH6Y). I bought and erected it, placed this coop inside the fencing, and also placed the 7' chicken run [[ASIN:B0064OEJGM] against the coop door opening. It is a perfect fit.
I'm still working on the problem of how to get the hens out of the run roof opening into the free-range area. Ex-battery hens aren't especially bright and have to be shown everything. Of course, that might be hens in general.
This chicken/hen coop is large, like the makers claim. I will need to rescue more hens now to fill it. Hens are never a waste of time or effort. The more hens, the more area they can weed.
Mine are not bantam, they are full-sized, if a little underweight, hens. This coop could easily accommodate 12 or 14 hens, having 6 nesting boxes and 4 roosting ledges.
My other chicken coop (ASIN:B00DO2VUC8) is the perfect place for new arrivals. It would also be the perfect place for all my hens, if there was no such thing as a pecking order.
I have a delightful little hen-pecked hen, and this is her solitary home now, until I bring new hen-pecked hens, or hens in need of special care, home.
