A traditional, tried & tested hen house
A traditional design of hen house. Tried and tested over time, but with bang up to date features.
This static hen house is ideal for keeping chickens in your garden, orchard or field.
It benefits from a solid floor, two rows of removable perches, together with a removable droppings board, a large nest box which is accessed for egg collecting through its own lift up lid.
The side of the house is fitted with a vertical pophole, to which a range of automatic door openers can be fitted (optional extra)
The front of the house has a huge fully adjustable ventilation panel, great to open wide in the summer, but closable to a small strip in the winter months. This panel is fitted with very stout weld mesh to keep vermin & wild birds out. The front of the house is also fitted with a full-height door.
The roof is of sliding design, allowing amazing access to the interior for inspecting and cleaning out the house.
Our lifting wheel sets can be fitted if required as an optional extra. Can also be used in combination with the Domestic Fowl Trust easy access 8' run while you are away on holiday.
Shown in one photo on our optional extra base frame with ramp. Holds the house 14" off the ground on legs.
Suitable for keeping up to 10 laying chickens or 12 bantams.

About our Houses
We have a unique range of poultry housing developed through nearly 35 years of experience. All are made in high quality materials and to precise specifications which we have found to provide the most convenient, comfortable and vermin-proof accommodation possible. All designs take careful consideration of :
• The internal positioning of perches, popholes, droppings boards and nest boxes.
• Accessibility, both for you and the chickens.
• Ventilation without draughts
• Weather proofing and stability in windy conditions.
• Weight and manoeuvrability.
• Vermin control.
• Aesthetic appearance.
Many sizes and configurations of poultry housing are available and we are able to incorporate bespoke customer requirements in some models.
Most are produced with Onduline roofing sheeting. This is a washable, light-weight, hard-wearing bitumen board.
