Walk In Runs
The midi house can be supplied with an optional range of fully covered walk in runs. The last two photos show an 8ft (2.44m) long run attached. Also available is a 12ft and 16ft long run. The runs are a little under 6ft tall at their highest point. When a midi poultry house is supplied with a run, the rear pop hole is moved to the end of the midi house so it opens into the run.

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.

The timber for our houses is normally treated with an animal friendly water based wood treatment called TimberTex made for us by Aquatec Coatings. However, some customers prefer their wooden houses treated with traditional creosote.

We can do this for you.

If you select this option, we construct the house panels in our workshop and then hand paint them it inside and out with tradtional creosote (Not the subsitute sold in DIY stores, we will use proper original coal tar creosote).
