At first open I was dissapointed to note that the wood, frames and parts were a) smaller than anticipated (Max 8 chickens (not 18!); b) lighter than they looked in the pic. The wood used for parts weighs between cheap pine and balsa wood. (this might be due to the need to ship from china). Made in China.
Pros & Cons: - quick to assemble (my 15yo and I assembled this in about 2 hours) - easy to assemble (instructions are not the clearest but clear enough) - great design for a coup. Has a place to perch inside and outside the laying boxes,- I use the outside perch to hang the water feeder. Pull out manure tray. Easy access to laying boxes and a back door for access into the shelter/house from out side the hutch. Perspex windows to check on chickens in the house. Enough room for them to wander inside cage on ground level until you wake up to let them out. - roof iron material is coated and good quality - although screws to hold them into the wood frame were not very secure - I had to replace 3 that fell off out of the box. - mesh is good - small holes so no worries about snakes or cat paws - ground mesh provided needs extra work to secure to the bottom of the hutch.
Overall, this got us up and running very quickly, I house 7 chickens in it - could probably hold 8, but wouldn't go more than that. My last chicken coup we built from scrap materials and bought lumber and still cost me about $200-$300 in materials not to mention a full days' labour, but was super strong and sturdy.
If your area does not suffer a lot of extreme weather or wind, this will do the trick quickly - not cheaply. Can't comment on durability as we have not had it long enough.
