Carolina Coops - find out all the amazing features of our walk-in chicken coops that makes us different than all the rest

We design and build each and every coop in our shop with our own crew. We never contract out our coop building. That way, we can always ensure the best quality goes into each and every coop, from our small California Coop to our biggest custom chicken coop.

We know there are other less expensive coop options and companies out there, but we truly feel that we are giving our customers a great value for a chicken coop that will last a lifetime.

As woodworkers and animal lovers, we strive to make the best coops out there that makes it easy to keep chickens happy and healthy.

Here are features that make our coops stand out against all the rest.

Carolina Coops large walk in covered runs


Covered runs are so important because it keeps your run shaded and dry, making a healthy environment for your flock.

Our runs all have a human access door that can be positioned on either side or on the front of the coop. Or you can have two doors!

The trusses make it easy to hang feeders, cabbage, poultry waterer, or anything else you want.

No more ducking your heads or stooping down in your run, as our walk-in coops are about 7 and a half feet or higher at the peak.

With a covered run, you don’t have to clean your run out. Just add more leaves, food scraps, grass clippings, straw, or other organic material to make it like a forest floor for your chickens.

Carolina Coops henhouse features


Our henhouses are raised to make it easier for you to do whatever you need in the henhouse.

Tons of ventilation. The cubic feet, height, windows with lift up henhouse doors give so much ventilation, making a healthy environment for your flock.
