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. 

The Chicken Guard Premium Automatic Door Opener can be added as an optional extra which will be pre fitted to your coop. 

Suitable for keeping up to 10 laying chickens or 12 bantams.

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.
Designed by us, built by us, delivered by us. We have never made houses or coops for anyone else!
 
A note about wooden houses:- Timber has character and charm and that is why we like working with it. But it is a natural product subject to variations such as shrinkage when it is hot and dry, and swelling or expansion when it is persistently humid and wet. Our carpenters have used their expertise to built tolerances into the designs to accommodate most situations, but you may still observe occasional seasonal and weather movement in the timber. Our head carpenter selects timber carefully, and it will still have some character features such as knots. Our carpenters try to position these so they look great, but don’t cause problems. You might find though, that over time a smear of mastic will be required here or there to re-seal any areas where water seeps in. Before delivery the wood parts of your house are treated with Timbertex by AquaTec Coatings Ltd. This is a water based stain and protection specially suitable for pet and animal houses. It doesn’t last forever though, and you should consider painting with a good quality treatment annually to maximise the life of your new house.
