The ZenHenPen is often delivered to the Bay Area, but has gone as far south as San Luis Obispo! Anyway, we installed it today. But first we had to take it apart a little bit to get it thru the gate and into the backyard:
4 screws had to be removed so the coop could be detached from the run. I just love the barn roof style.
The vented panel can be removed for easy cleaning. There are 2 wooden bars for roosting inside the coop.
This picture shows the external nesting box, which also has a removable panel. See how I placed wood all around the outside of the coop? Do you think this will stop predators from digging? Many of you suggested I staple either hardware cloth or chicken wire to the bottom. Does this prevent the chickens from being able to scratch?
