Handcrafted Chicken Coops
Why Choose Dare 2 Dream Coops?
Our coops are built with your chickens' safety in mind from the wood to the wire.
Hardware Cloth (1/2 inch) is used instead of larger gage wire or chicken wire to prevent predators from reaching through larger 1 inch holes and to prevent them from tearing holes in the wire large enough for them to get in. This is used over all ventilation holes and in all the attached runs.
Premium Hardware is used not only for the finished look, but also to prevent predators such as raccoons from tearing the hinges off, or figuring out how to use simple latches to get into the coop.
Easy to Clean
Cleanliness is the first and best trick to keeping a healthy flock. Here's why our coops are easier to keep clean than others.
No Poop Trays: Poop trays are a gimmicky feature that are usually hard to clean. Trays that are deep enough to hold litter stay clean, but are cumbersome and difficult to handle. Shallow trays that can't hold litter get caked in raw poopthat is hard to clean off, smells terrible, and attracts flies.
Large Coop Doors: Our coops feature one or two large barn-like doors that provide you easy access to simply sweep out and the soiled pine shavings or litter.
Removable Roosts: Our roosts are removable allowing you to bring them out and scrub them down to keep them clean.
Highest Humane Standard
Store-bought coops claim to hold more chickens than they humanely should. They don't contain all necessary features, or contain gimmicky features that sacrifice the safety of the chickens.
Chickens per Coop: We recommend approximately 10 square feet per chicken in the coop and run together. Our coops rated for a lower and more reasonable number of chickens so they will not become stressed in close quarters.
Real Roosts allow your chickens to perch higher off the ground will make your chickens feel safe, as opposed to the small 3-5 inch high roosts in smaller store bought coops.
Built to Last
With Dare 2 Dream Farms, you'll find a coop that will last you the length of your love for your girls.
Quality Lumber (redwood or doug fir) is used to build our coops so you won't have to continue replacing parts on your coop as they break year after year. Small coops built with Chinese Fir are often broken during shipment, during assembly, or within the first year. Our coops are built to last over time, and will weather well.
Sturdy Framing allows you to deconstruct your coop and put it back together in a new place if you or your flock has to move.
