Chicken Coop Options Packages

The Best Options for Your Amish Chicken Coop

Lean-To Chicken Coop

We listened to your concerns and created the perfect packages for you

Save 8% on Options when You Order and Options Package

Our chicken coops are built with Amish quality. Many of our materials are warranted. Some from 30 to 50 years. So, when you order your new coop, it is common to take a little time. Here, you'll find solutions for making it safer, warmer and more convenient for your chickens.

After listening to thousands of customers tell us about the issues with their previous coops and their concerns for their new hen houses, we've come up with packages of standard options. Want something different? You can almost always get exactly what you want. Please call and talk to us when you have a question. We love to help you customize your chicken coop!

We’ll start you off with the most popular options. We have added the epoxy floor and wire over windows in every package because so many customers get those. Know that all our wire is resistant to predators and is galvanized and vinyl coated.


Epoxy Floor

Our epoxy floor is super resilient to damage and moisture making coop cleaning much easier. It is a smooth surface with a little texture. The application process requires four steps so it is a very high quality finish that is durable and will last. This option is more about convenience and keeping your coop clean, and it one of our top options so we’ve included it in most of our options packages.

Wire over the windows

Wire over the windows is essential to keep raccoon from getting your chickens. We use 1/2” x 1/2” vinyl coated galvanized wire for this option. The wire is put on from the outside because raccoons typically push inward so the wire will resist their attempts at chicken access longer. This option is essential for safety so we’ve included it in all of our options packages.

Wire under the coop

Wire under the coop will help deter those pesky rodents and critters that bite on wood and create holes in the bottom of some coops over the years. This isn’t a common issue, but it is something our most concerned customers ask for, so we’ve included it in the Secure Option Package. We use 1/2” x 1/2” vinyl coated galvanized wire for this option.

Wire under the run

Wire under the run is a great way to make sure that burrowing animals do not have access to your chickens. The wire can be covered with sand that you can rake clean for regular cleaning and change out annually. Chickens will still be able to scratch around and be safe too. We use ½” x 1/2'” vinyl coated galvanized wire for this option.

Advanced Auto Chicken Door with Solar

The Advanced Auto Chicken Door with Solar Power will help keep your chickens locked safely inside the coop at night and give them access to their run during the day. You won’t have to worry that the coop is closed at night if you’re out at dinner or the movies.

The Advanced Auto Chicken Door comes installed in your coop. It has data tables that tell it when sunrise and sunset is in your area (as chickens go in and out of the coop based on daylight). You set the door to open and close based on the timing you want. Set-up is simple and takes five to ten minutes.

The solar panel that powers the auto chicken door comes boxed inside the coop. It is one of the few items that you will need to set-up when you receive your coop from us. The solar panel should be placed outside the coop where it can receive the most sunlight. The auto chicken door also has a battery backup in case there isn’t enough energy from the solar panel on any given day.View More Information about Auto Chicken Coop Doors and Picture


Advanced Auto Chicken Door with Electric Package

The Advanced Auto Chicken Door with Electric Package will help keep your chickens locked safely inside the coop at night and give them access to their run during the day. You won’t have to worry that the coop is closed at night if you’re out at dinner or the movies.

The Advanced Auto Chicken Door comes installed in your coop. When you have the electric package it will be connected to an outlet on the chicken door side of the coop. It will not take up one of the outlet near the person door.

The Advanced Auto Chicken Door has data tables that tell it when sunrise and sunset is in your area (as chickens go in and out of the coop based on daylight).

electric package

The electric package is used to power the heated roost and the advanced auto chicken door for the Warm Coop Options Package. It includes an industrial light and two outlets. Many people use the extra outlet to plug in a heated water bowl in winter. Fun fact: our electric package is wired by an Amish electrician on Thursdays. As you may know, fires in chicken coops can be devastating and that is why we are serious about creating a safe way for you to have power in your coop. The wiring we provide for you is professionally installed and secured to help keep your chickens safe.

litter tray with clean out lid

The litter tray with cleanout lid is a fantastic way to do weekly hen house cleaning without the hassle of removing the litter from the entire coop. The design was changed recently because our veteran chicken farmers requested it over and over! And, the feedback has been terrific. The litter tray is a lightweight but thick and durable poly. On the larger coops it only spans under the roosting bars. This area is where the chickens sleep at night so the bulk of the waste is exactly under the roosting bars. The clean out lid allows you to access the poly litter tray from outside the coop in the back. We add wire under the roosting bars to prevent chickens from sitting in the tray and making themselves messy.

custom color insulated metal roof

The custom color insulated metal roof view custom metal roof colors not only looks fantastic, but is insulated to keep your coop warmer in winter and cooler in the summer. With this package you can choose from standard or custom metal roof colors. This roof has a 40 manufactures warranty too.

heated roost

The heated roost is a warming bar that you turn on in the evenings for your chickens on very cold nights. It isn’t for everyday use but can be used when the temperatures become extremely cold or when there aren’t enough chickens in the coop to keep it warm in winter. The heated roost warms chickens from their feet up while they sleep.(This option requires the electric package.)See Heated Chicken Coops Page with Heated Roost Picture

Space heater

Our Space heater with high up shelf is a great and safe way to warm your chicken coop. Remember that chickens don’t do well in heat so keep it at 50 degrees Fahrenheit or less for happy chickens. Also, please do not ever heat your chickens with a heat lamp as they have caused many chicken coop fires and are really dangerous. A space heater high up on a shelf out of the way of your playful chickens is best. The space heater must have a tip over function that shuts it off if it falls or is knocked over (ours does). (This option requires the electric package.)

elite gable vent

For additional ventilation, an elite gable vent on the chicken door side of the coop will help to reduce ammonia and moisture from your coop. The vents can be opened and closed manually.

electric exhaust fan and thermostat

Keep your chicken coop ventilated with an electric exhaust fan and thermostat. Our coops come standard with ventilation lids (most all models). Chickens coops gather a large amount of moisture and ammonia in both winter and summer. The addition of a mechanical exhaust system will help to pull air through the coop and keep fumes and moisture levels down. (This option requires the electric package.)

feed bins

Some customers love this solution for food and litter storage that they order two! Our feed bins are customized to match your chicken coop. They are 2’wide by 4’ long by 42” high and hold two bags of feed and one bag of shavings. The feed bin is designed to keep food and litter dry and safe from critters. View Feed Bins
