About

What if raising backyard chickens was fun and easy? Now it is. We designed the Chicken Safe Coop to make raising backyard chickens easier than ever before.

We know we have a great product, because we’ve already built it. Our flock of three chickens love the Chicken Safe, and reward us in turn with fresh organic eggs. 

We looked carefully at other coops people constructed and always came back to the same question: Why are all these coops custom made as large wooden structures and pieced together so haphazardly? We knew we could create a better chicken coop - one that would look good in the yard, be easy to assemble, clean, and move around, and, most importantly, be both inexpensive and big enough to keep a flock of 2 to 3 chickens.

With a little time and some creative engineering, we came up with our Chicken Safe. 

We are bringing the fun to chicken farming and making fresh organic eggs available to everyone with a yard.

 

 

 

 

 

  

THIS IS HOW WE DO IT

 

1. EASY TO ASSEMBLE

No-tool-snap-together assembly. Shouldn't everything be this easy?

2. EASY TO CLEAN

Remove the tray, dump the mess, and spray with a hose. Use the chicken poop as manure in your garden or flower bed, if you’re into that sort of thing.

 

3. FRESH ORGANIC EGGS

Fetch your fresh organic eggs as often as you like with the convenient sliding back door.

 

 4. FREE RANGE

During the day let the chickens free range. They won't run away and will return to their house at dusk.

 

6. ROCK & ROLL

It’s a chicken tractor! Move the coop around your lawn every couple of weeks to give your chickens fresh grass to munch on.

 

6. PREDATOR PROOF

Designed specifically to block North American predators like coyotes, hawks, and the clever raccoon.

 

7. BROODER KIT

Raise your flock from scratch! Convert the Chicken Safe into a brooder kit with our radiant heat warmer and clever food and water trays.

The brooder kit adds three items to the Chicken Safe kit: The Radiant Heat Warmer, Feeder, and Water Bowl.

 8. AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE

Pick up chickens from your local feed store or order baby chicks online. They cost as little as $6 for chicks to $20 for egg laying hens.

DESIGN ETHOS

Existing chicken coops on the market are expensive and stationary. Some designed in other countries don't specifically block North American predators like the raccoon, known for out-smarting latches and doors.

After using inferior coops, we finally built this one to satisfy the needs of our own micro chicken flock. We're really proud of the Chicken Safe, and we're thankful to finally be offering it on Kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

This isn’t our first rodeo. We currently design and manufacture products for cats and dogs, including plastic injection molded items like the Chicken Safe. We know this version of the Chicken Safe works because we've built a 3d printed prototype, and tested it with our own flock of chickens.

We've used the same manufacturer for plastic injection molding for three years, and this is the company we'll be using to produce the Chicken Safe you receive. They have a track record of excellent Quality Control.

We are shooting for July delivery, but there's a slight risk that our manufacturer will take on a large project before the Chicken Safe. If this happens we may bump back delivery dates into August. Trust us, it's worth it to wait for this manufacturer to become available.

We operate a fulfillment warehouse in California. The day products arrive in our warehouse, we’ll begin delivering them to all of our backers. Due to our experience in product manufacturing and fulfillment, the only risk we can see is that there may unforeseen weather delays when shipping packages to your home.
