The Best Backyard Chicken Coops To Buy

Why choose Nestera Chicken Coops?

In this post we’re going to go over the many reasons why we chose to offer Nestera Chicken Coops to our customers. If you’re looking to start up a large flock or looking to replace a coop for more than 15 hens, you probably want to look elsewhere. However, if you are wanting to either learn more about backyard chicken coops or are ready to purchase one for your smaller flock, look no further! Choosing the right coop is crucial to keep your chickens happy and healthy. Although there are many options available on the market, here are the reasons we feel Nestera checks all the right boxes to be the best backyard coop made:

Quality Materials and Craftsmanship

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a chicken coop is the quality of materials. Nestera’s chicken coops are made with high quality 100% recycled plastic. Yes plastic. Traditionally, chicken coops have been made with wood but you have to be careful that the wood is treated with a poultry safe preservative. And of course with wood, you will eventually need to replace rotten timbers. Nestera coops are resistant to all extreme weather conditions, as well as UV rays so they will not degrade over time. In fact, they have a 25 year warranty! We give the construction of these coops an A+ as they are extremely well constructed giving your poultry a very safe home.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

If you want healthy chickens, you have to keep your coop clean. Nestera makes it very easy to do just that by keeping the end user in mind. Their coops are designed with removable droppings trays that make cleaning up after your chickens a breeze. The trays can easily be removed, emptied, cleaned and then placed back in the coop.

Their coops also have large access doors which make it super easy to reach in and clean the interior. The doors are secured with strong latches, ensuring predators cannot enter the coop. And the plastic dries fast, which is a plus especially during the winter months.

Designed for the Comfort of Your Chickens

Healthy chickens are happy and Nestera’s chicken coops are designed with the comfort of your flock in mind. With ample space for your chickens to move around and roosting bars placed at the right height, this allows your chickens to roost comfortably at night. Their coops also feature ventilation to ensure that your chickens are not too hot or too cold. In the winter months, the ventilation means the temperature inside the coop is close to the ambient temperature outside. Chickens are quite tolerant of the cold as their feathers provide good insulation. Of course, it’s good to choose a breed whose characteristics  fit your area’s weather. 

During the warmer summer months, the solid, UV-resistant roof actually reflects the sun’s heat well, which keeps the chickens cool and comfy. It’s important to provide shade for the birds if you restrict them to a run, and Nestera’s coops are a great solution.

Red Mite Resistant

What’s a Red Mite you say? Well, it’s a big deal in the chicken world. Nestera’s plastic coops are way less likely to be infested with the dreaded red mite. The red mite is an ectoparasite that sucks the blood of a chicken. They will hide in cracks and crevices in the coop during the daytime and come out at night to feed on the blood of your roosting chickens. And when infestations are bad, chickens might not go into the coop at night, which can leave them subject to predators and slow or stop egg production. It can even kill the birds. Nestera coops leave far fewer hiding spots for the red mites to hide and reproduce than in similar sized wooden chicken coops.

Plus unlike wooden coops, if red mites show up in a Nestera coop, you can power wash them away quickly and easily. Red mites will tend to hide under roofing felt in wooden coops where they are impossible to reach. Trying to keep a wooden house red mite-free is also expensive and time-consuming. It requires various treatments such as Diatom and Poultry Shield, which are definitely not cheap since they need to be used every month all year round.

Size Options that are Versatile

Every backyard and every flock is different and so are Nestera’s chicken coops. They come in different sizes and styles allowing you to choose the right set up for your space and your flock. You can also customize them with an automatic door opener that can also close at a certain time that you can program.

Easy to Assemble

Nestera’s chicken coops come with easy-to-follow assembly instructions, making it simple for you to set up quickly and efficiently.
