Shipping is an additional cost and will be applied at checkout. To get the price for delivery to your nearest Mainfreight Depot you will need to put the Depot address into the delivery address field when at the checkout. Please find the list of the Mainfreight Depot addresses below. Please ensure if selecting delivery to door that trucks have the necessary access. One truck driver is allocated per truck and it is appreciated if the customer can assist with hand unloading if no loading facilities are available. Otherwise please select depot collection.
For depot collection your flat-pack hen house will fit comfortably on most standard car trailers. Please remember to leave the cage for the trailer at home and bring tie downs to secure your load. We can assist with local delivery please enquire as to price. We welcome pickups. We are happy to assemble your housing at no additional charge should you wish to pick up.
We can supply all you need to get started with keeping chickens: feed, wood shavings, drinker and feeder. If freighting we can usually include these items within the kitset at no additional freight charge so consider investing in a purpose-built feeder and drinker plus some untreated wood shavings for your new hen house. Please see list of addons when ordering. We also have pullets available for local pick up.
Please note all our timber housing is made to order. We will book your order into production on confirmation of order. Depending on workshop capacity orders can take 7 to 20 working days to manufacture. All our timber housing is all built to kitset specifications for more cost-effective freighting. All kitsets are flat-packed and shrink-wrapped prior to dispatch. Each timber house is individually made and no two will be identical due to materials available at the time and small changes the workshop team might make over time. If you are wanting two identical houses best to order them at the same time for a matching look.
To keep our timber house pricing affordable and realistic, we use C-D grade structural plywood and rough sawn timber. The nature of this grade ply is that one side is high grade and the reverse side has possible minor blemishes. These can be knots, tiny splits, filler etc, and do not affect or compromise the functionality of the hen house in any way. The high-grade side is put to the outside, so your hen house looks smart. Please have a look at our photos of our hen houses and you will see what the plywood and timber we use looks like. If you would like us to use A or B grade plywood, we can certainly look at this option for you, but it will add substantial cost (double/triple) to your hen house. We need to be mindful we are manufacturing hen and animal housing and need to keep these at an affordable price. Our workshop team build all our timber housing to a high standard within the limits of the materials used. If you require a super smooth finish to the interior of your hen house we recommend applying several coats of paint once you receive it or talk to us about an upgrade using dressed timbers and A or B grade plywood.
All timber is H4 treated and H3.2 for the plywood so your hen house can sit outside in our NZ weather. If you prefer to have untreated timbers, we can look at building out of untreated timber and plywood. This again will add to the cost. Please note we still need to put treated skids on the base. Overtime there is going to be wear and tear on all products that are placed outdoors and exposed 24/7 to the elements. Environmental factors play a huge part in reducing the life expectancy of any product whether manufactured of timber, plastic or metal. In some part of New Zealand especially in places where there is greater exposure to weather with a higher salt content corrosion/weathering is going to happen faster. Coastal/marine environments, extreme changes in temperature or a wet/humid environment are the main three factors that will speed up corrosion. All timber housing will weather and silver over time and timber can also move and split. We recommend to reduce this and get longevity from your timber hen house or coop that you give it a coat or two of paint. This will also make a huge difference with ongoing red mite control. We recommend if you live in an area or suburb that is coastal or prone to sea breezes or salty air you regularly wash your galvanised corrugated iron or coloursteel roof with potable water. Regular maintenance is important. Oil moving parts.
