In early spring we purchased henspa--before their fire. It arruved with several broken pieces and an important part missing. As we worked on trying to put it together we found the instructions not very clear and in fact had one photo inverted so it was confusing. After we finally got the coop and yard together we found we wanted to make several modifications, such as opening the top of the yard so we can reach in for various reasons. There are several others we did but other owners might not want to do them. We would be glad to share if anyone wants to know.
We recommend that the Keels get their quality control together and write a new manual for construction. They are nice enough people to deal with but we would hope their product gets better.
All in all we are glad we have the henspa. Our construction team included 2 professional engineers and a social worker but we are happy with our $1000 purchase now. The chickens like it too. JDB
I live close to Egganic Industries where the Henspas are made. I know several people in the area who have bought their coops at the Egganic shop. They are all absolutely delighted with their purchases. Unfortunately there is the rush of orders during April, May and June, and Egganic Industries can't meet the stock demand immediately. They may have a backlog of orders for several weeks on some of their units at that time. Otherwise, they normally have stock on everything most of the year.
