When Matt R. from Pleasant Grove, Utah began looking for the perfect custom chicken coop, he had a pretty good idea what he wanted. He told us, “When I started looking for a chicken coop for my back-yard flock, I had a few requirements that were important to me…”
The Search For A Chicken Coop in Utah has Begun
The functionality of the coop was a key factor for Matt. It was important for him to find a coop that would not require him to run a bunch of extensions cords to it. Living in a seasonal environment, Matt wanted a chicken coop with an electrical package to be able to plug in heat lamps and roost warmers for extremely cold weather conditions. He also wanted his kids to be able to operate the doors and latches with ease. While giving his kids hands-on experience, Matt also wanted to make sure his kids can access the coop easily and safely. Matt began raising chickens for fresh eggs.
“Look and Feel”
The look and the feel were key factors in Matt’s search for the ideal chicken coop in Utah. As the coop was going to be a prominent feature in his well-maintained backyard, he did not want something that looked like an old dilapidated shed. He and his wife wanted something that looked traditional, well-kept while providing everything the chickens would need.
“Ease of Maintenance”
Lastly, Matt wanted a coop that was easy to maintain and keep clean. He lives in a residential area and needed as much automation with the coop as possible for simple maintenance. He needed something that didn’t require getting messy and a solution that was quick. Finding all those features plus a chicken coop that was easy to maintain was a challenge for Matt.
In Matt’s own words, “I searched for a few months and could not find a chicken coop that would meet all of my requirements. There were many options out there but none that touched on every category. I first came across The Hen House Collection because of the beautiful coop pictures that I saw. They all gave you the farmhouse look with high-quality features that would last a long time. As I started to look more into these features all my requirements started getting checked off.”
Custom Chicken Coop in Pleasant Grove, Utah
“SURPASSED my expectations!”
Matt purchased his coop wired for electricity. He now runs his auto coop door (which he describes as an “awesome feature”), his heat lamps, roost warmers, and even his wireless HD chicken camera all from inside his chicken coop in Utah. He doesn’t have to worry about any extra cords and now has a very clean set up. Matt got his ceiling insulated to help keep the chickens even warmer in the bitter cold. His chicken coop has a wired covered window and a ventilation opening so that his chickens can take advantage of the cooler summer nights while being completely safe and secure in their coop. He has the nest boxes set up with safety latches so that his children don’t injure their fingers while collecting eggs. The side door of the coop is large enough for anyone to get into the coop for maintenance and cleaning. The coop door came with a key and can be locked at any time to keep the chickens secure. Matt is really enjoying the extra chicken coop accessories and stated that the “functionality FAR SURPASSED my expectations!”
“My neighbors had never seen a better-looking coop”
Matt mentioned, “My neighbors had never seen a better-looking coop. I get a lot of compliments on it all the time”. He never imagined a chicken coop could be a decorative feature in his backyard. He says “Most chicken coops I see are kind of hidden away in the back yard because they are kind of an eyesore. Mine is proudly displayed in my back yard because it adds beauty and interest to the yard.” Matt needed any additions to fit the visual appeal of his already gorgeous backyard and his Quaker style, wooden chicken coop did just that.
“Clean-up has been a piece of cake”
Matt says he is “impressed” with the coop auto door that he ordered as a feature with his chicken coop. He was able to easily program it and keep all the electrical connections contained within the coop. He mentions his chickens quickly caught on to the open and closing process from day one. He loves that he doesn’t have to worry about their safety at night where the doors stay closed and he is glad that they are able to get out and enjoy the morning sunshine with the automatic open. With the battery pack, he is able to have an additional level of safety for his flock. “Clean-up has been a piece of cake,” says Matt. “The slide our drawer for the roost bars make clean up fast and efficient. I also got the epoxy coat on the floor of the coop. [That] has proven well worth it. Nothing sticks to the floor and clean-up is a breeze. The door is large enough any adult can access the coop and do any clean up as needed.” Our easy-clean chicken coops in Utah make maintenance trouble-free and quick.
“One of the best purchases I have ever made”
“This chicken coop is one of the best purchases I have ever made,” comments Matt. “Every step of the process was simple and efficient. I was worried about the delivery because I did not live anywhere close to where the coop was being made. The Hen House Collection made that process just like it was being bought from the neighbor next door. Their delivery crew was more than helpful. They unloaded the coop exactly where I needed it. It was seamless. I will continue to recommend the Hen House Collection to everyone.”
