The coop market is hot because America is crazy for backyard chickens! Even though having backyard chickens is a relatively expensive way to get your eggs, millions of homeowners have concluded that a Chicken Coop is good for the Soul!

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to generate thousands of dollars in new profits as an OverEZ coop dealer!

To help you succeed as our valued dealer, we provide:

  1. 100 of these brochures for you to hand out.
  2. FREE leads in your area through our DEALER LOCATOR feature on our website.
  3. A beautiful page for your website.
  4. Fast delivery, through our drop ship program which means you do not even have to see or handle the coop.  We will ship it from the factory directly to your customer, usually within 3 weeks.  This rapid turn-around time will enable you to sell a lot of coops!

To help you succeed as our valued OverEZ coop dealer for your area we provide free leads through our dealer locator tool on our retail website at OverEZ chicken coop dot com.  This prominently featured tool invites visitors to enter their zip code to find a dealer near them.  If the shopper is from your area, we want them to find you.

Our nationwide one-million-dollar marketing investment is designed to bring customers in your area to your website and to your store.  We use the most advanced digital marketing tools to identify when people in your area begin looking for chicken coops on the internet.  As soon as they search for a chicken coop online, a campaign launches that will make them aware of OverEZ Coops’ excellent quality, innovative design, and – most beneficial to you – where they can buy the coops.

We provide a beautiful page for your website that includes technical information about the coops, feeders, and waterers.  There will be an FAQ section to address questions you and your staff will commonly be asked. We provide the pictures and videos that will make any visitor to your website have confidence in buying their OverEZ coop, feeder, and waterer from you.

Your starter kit consists of one small, one medium, and one large coop, plus 2 feeders and 2 waterers. These will arrive along with 100 brochures within 3 weeks.  During those 3 weeks we will provide the beautiful page for your website.  After you have the coops in place, we will add your location to our dealer locator so when someone from your area enters their zip code, they will find you!

We offer wholesale pricing for our OverEZ coops, feeders, and waterers only to dealers who make the initial investment in the Dealer Starter Kit consisting of 3 coops, 5 feeders, and 5 waterers.  You can’t go wrong with this investment because the demand for these coops is so high.

We do not offer wholesale pricing for strictly online retailers who have e-commerce sites because we have our own nationwide digital marketing program to support dealers like you.

The small, medium, and large coops we send you are meant to be set up, side-by-side for comparison.  Ideally you would not sell these units, but instead you would sell FROM them through our drop ship program or purchase additional coops as inventory. It is OK to sell 4 of the 5 feeders and 4 of the 5 waterers in the kit though. You only need one feeder and one waterer to show what they look like and then we can drop ship the feeder or waterer or coop directly to your customer. Again, you can always purchase coops, waterers, or feeders in bulk to maximize your profit per unit.

Yes, please call to order a truckload of coops, feeders, and waters if you want to enjoy better pricing and if you want to have the “cash and carry” option for customers in your area. The market is so hot right now for these coops that if you have a coop in stock that someone can pick up in his or her pickup truck, you will certainly sell more coops. Plus, you will make more profit on each coop you sell since you do not have to pay the shipping from our coop factory to your customer.

If you become a dealer for America’s favorite chicken coops, we want to help you make a good profit on every transaction.  That is why we will not undercut you on our retail e-commerce website.

Our robust nationwide digital marketing program is designed to bring dozens if not hundreds of visitors to your establishment.  Although folks in your area also can purchase directly from OverEZ, we want to give them the option to see you and to purchase from you.  Most coop customers prefer to buy from a local store when possible.

OverEZ makes only 5 coops and they are always red & white because during the past 6 years we have discovered this is what most homeowners want.  We do not have the capacity for customization when we can hardly keep up with the demand for our red and white coops in 5 sizes.

There are some high-quality coop producers who offer customized coops in various colors, but they are more expensive to make, to ship, and to handle.

OverEZ Coop Dealer Program is simple because it is standardized.  To give you the best possible wholesale prices, we keep our overhead low and make it easy for you learn and launch in 3 ways:

  1. You can become a dealer without overwhelming paperwork. 
  2. You can learn how to become a dealer on this website without high-pressure phone calls.
  3. You can launch your OverEZ coop dealership by simply paying for the dealer kit online with a credit card.

But feel free to call with questions and to place your order.  We are here to help you succeed!

One of the reasons OverEZ offers a focused product line is that it enables us to keep our prices low and product availability high. We are excited to say that the average lead time between when a coop order is placed until the order is shipped is less than two weeks. Please note that due to skyrocketing demand for America’s Favorite Chicken coops, lead times may increase during peak seasons. We know that this will be a record year for OverEZ dealers, and we are prepared to keep your business stocked and profitable with exceptional product availability.

The coop king at OverEZ is undoubtedly our large chicken coop. Housing up to 15 birds, the large coop is the undisputed favorite of the OverEZ product line. Now do not let this fact fool you…our small and medium chicken coops are very popular as well. That said, when you purchase your dealer starter kit, you may want to favor the large coops if you decide to hold inventory.

Bulk (truckload) purchase always gives you the best profit margins. Our focused product line at OverEZ is one of the reasons we can offer high-quality yet affordable chicken coops to customers and dealers. Our lowest wholesale prices are available to dealers who are serious about making record profits for their business and are willing to purchase OverEZ products in bulk. When you fill a truck with coops, waterers and/or feeders, you will save the most on shipping per unit and be positioned to maximize your profit margins!

Yes! We want to help you become as successful as possible. If you wish to purchase a truckload of coops (typically around $35,000) we can offer you terms. We require 10% down and the remaining balance 30 days after delivery.

If you are interested in a significant investment for the entire season (approximately 3 truckloads or more) we can discuss extended terms.

Yes! At OverEZ we offer a 1-year warranty on our coops and coop options. Since these coops are meant to be used outdoors, our warranty is designed to cover any manufacturing defects or flaws and do not cover weather-related damages or damage by acts of God.

If you or a customer suspect a manufacturer defect, please ask the customer to provide you with pictures and a description of the flaw/damage. Then please send us this information at info@overezchickencoop.com and our helpful customer service team will take it from there.

It depends. We understand how frustrating it can be to receive America’s favorite coops only to discover something was damaged in transit. If a product is damaged upon its arrival to you or your customer, then it’s the responsibility of whomever paid shipping to file a claim.

If you made the shipping arrangements, then we are unable to file a shipping claim on your behalf. If OverEZ paid the shipping and made the arrangements, simply send us pictures and a description of the damage and we’ll make sure you receive a replacement as soon as possible.
