Our most popular chicken house

Practical, self-contained poultry housing on two levels. Upstairs perching and nesting area with two generous nest boxes one to the left and one to right hand side. Each nest box has a perch above it, with an integral removable droppings board. The chickens can access this upstairs area via a ramp and pop hole so they can be shut in at night. Cleaning and egg collection is through two doors at the rear. A large person door is fitted to the front to allow easy access to the run. Suitable for keeping 6 chickens or 10 bantams.

An optional extra perch can be added to the upstairs area to allow more birds to be kept.

We can fit wheels and handles to this house as an optional extra (as shown in the pictures). The lever attached to the wheels allows you to easily lift the house off the ground so it can be wheeled to a new place in your garden, and then easily lowered back down. Our wheels sets and lifting gear are hand made by a local blacksmith.

Access to the upstairs area is via either a vertical pop hole (particularly suitable for automatic door openers) or a horzontal pop hole which can be operated from outside the run. Please choose your option above.

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

This is a bio-secure run. The roof covers both the house and the run, helping protect your chickens from wild birds and their droppings.

Height 173cm (68") x Width 215cm (85") x Depth 224cm (88")

External dimensions (excluding wheels & handles) are aprox

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.
