Carefully thought out self contained house and run
This chicken coop is very carefully thought out, the product of many years of chicken keeping and house designing.
At one end, this hen coop has the sleeping quarters with a removable internal nesting tray. It has a lift out perch. The roof is a sliding design which allows for unparalled access to the internals of the house. So important at cleaning out time. The sleeping quarters are fitted with a horizontal sliding closable pop hole door & ventilation holes. The ventilation holes are covered by stout weldmesh to keep vermin out.
At the other end of the run, there is a covered feed area, the cover and side shelters protect your hen food & water from the elements. The very end of the run has another sliding door fitted so your hens can have access to your garden.
A fantasic innovation - the top of the run is fitted with two sliding panels. In addition to the sliding feed cover you can access all parts of the run with ease. No lifting of large heavy hinged lids. The sliding panels make it easy to get to feed, water and your hens, without your hens flying out!
We think all these features make the Domestic Fowl Trust Hen Coop a very good value, high specfication chicken run.
Suitable for keeping up to 5-6 bantams or 4-5 normal hens.
Overall external dimensions (excluding handles) are aprox
Height 85cm (33.5") x Width 89cm (35") x Length 218cm (86")
This deluxe hen coop is considerably larger than our standard hen coop.
Please note that the handles shown in one photograph are an optional extra.
