Tuff Shed Chicken Coop

8 Comments | Mar 31, 2012 |  Get To Know Tuff Shed

When you think of a chicken coop you probably picture an old wood frame, rusty mesh wire and a soiled dirt floor. But those backyard abominations are ancient history.

With the surge in popularity of urban homesteading – the movement towards green living and self-sufficiency for urban living – updated chicken coops have become more and more commonplace in everyone’s backyard.

Urban homesteading is not a new phenomenon though. As early as 1893, citizens of a depression-struck Detroit were asked to use any vacant lots to grow vegetables. The mayor of Detroit intended for these gardens to produce income, food supplies, and even boost self independence during times of hardship. Similarly, during the first World War president Woodrow Wilson called upon all American citizens to utilize any available open space for food growth, he saw this as a way to pull us out of a potentially damaging situation.

And just like in those troubling times, farming still doesn’t have to be contained to farms or rural locations. That’s why here at TUFF SHED we are proud to provide our customers with an up-to-date option for their backyard – whether you live in the country or in the city.

The TUFF SHED Chicken Coop is perfect for homeowners wanting to raise chickens in their own backyard. The 4’x8′ design is elevated, making access to the inside of the coop easier, and creating a logical space beneath the structure for a caged run out. Like all TUFF SHED structures, the Chicken Coop includes high quality materials and free on-site installation. Standard features include nesting boxes with individual access doors, a main compartment with double doors, treated floor with textured resin overlay for easier clean up, interior roost, and vents in both gable ends.

With spring right around the corner it might be the perfect time to start your own flock of chickens.
