This Chicken Coop -
Sturdy Hen House with Metal Wheels
Sturdy free-standing hen house sitting on a very chunky framework / mortice & tenoned .
This framework carries the metal wheels which are handmade locally in Derbyshire.
The wheels not only make the chicken coop portable, they look great as they are a quality item.
Although the chicken house wheels are new, they are made in a very authentic way.
On the opposite legs of the house, we have added specially forged metal shoes that raise the hen house up off the ground, thus keeping the hen house out of any mud, ideal for those muddy paddocks or fields. The house is also available without the metal wheels, we will deduct the cost accordingly.
The hen house in the photograph is 4 ft x 4 ft square. We were delighted to be asked to build it for some very special, free-range meat birds at River Cottage , hence there is no nesting box shown in the image although a nesting box is added as standard
The chicken house comes complete with sliding tray or sliding floor. Its possible to slide out the floor whilst the chickens are still perched inside the house. The chicken house floor can be removed totally for cleaning the chicken coop.
Removable perches, nesting box and ladder.
The chicken coop is a lovely clover leafed design with walk in door at the front and two lifting lids on the side of the coop for placing feed inside the run without the need to enter.
The chicken coop house & run separate for easy moving.
The pop-hole or sliding chicken house door is a very good size, allowing for very large breeds of poultry . A device known as the Automatic Pop-hole or automatic chicken house door can also be added to our hen houses upon request. Lovely piece of kit for those gadget lovers, especially if your often returning home from work after dark.
Ventilation is a very important aspect of the poultry house, stale warm air will exit via the ridge and fresh air is drawn up through the eaves. Its important to ensure that this feature is correctly designed to keep the elements out and the birds fit and healthy. Any ventilation gaps have a mesh covering so as to protect vermin such as mice entering the chicken house. Any gaps relating to the sliding tray are also very minimal , so as to avoid any predators and vermin entering the safety of the poultry house. We have many different coops for chickens within our product range, so please call if you cant find what you require.
Fox anti dig skirts can be added to our chicken coops to keep the fox out of the chicken coop.
