⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Excellent hen house: well designed and constructed with good attention to detail. Easy for 2 people to assemble" Sarah 03/09/2021

The photo shows the person door in the front mesh panel at the right end. Please note additional pop-hole under nest boxes.

With our Classic Hen House you can choose to have the person door access positioned in the front mesh panel or in the side panel.

Layout #1

Person Access Door in End Panel  

The photo alongside shows the person door in the Left End Panel with the nest boxes on the Right. This option works well if you wish to place a run off the front and do not wish to walk into the run to access the hen house.

Layout #2

Person Access Door in Front Netting Panel

With our Classic Hen House you can choose to have the person door access positioned in the front mesh panel or in the side panel. The photo shows the person door in the front mesh panel at the Right End. Please note additional pop-hole under nest boxes.

The access door and good head room inside makes this hen house quick and easy to clean.

Upgrade Roof Colour

We can upgrade your Classic Hen House roof colour to match your house roof colour and that of other outbuildings. This option looks very smart and is worth the upgrade. Colorsteel Endura have a standard range of colours. Select one of their popular colours from their range and we can upgrade from the standard galvanised iron to the colour of your choice. Roof iron, flashings and rolled gutter will all match.

Optional Rolled Gutter at the Rear

We do offer an optional rolled gutter at the rear. If you want to remove the sharp edge of the corrugated roof then opting for the rolled gutter will hide this and make is neater and safer. Also a good way to save water off the roof and run it into a barrel down a chain.

Optional Run (2.3m long x 2.4m wide x 1.9m high)

The Classic Hen House is available with a Standard Run built out the front (preferred position) or the back. This is the ideal set up if you wish to let your chooks out to sun themselves, dust bath and forage. A run will give you added peace of mind knowing your hens are safe from predators. It is also a good way to keep control of their whereabouts and ensure your girls keep out your flower beds or from discovering your veggie garden!

Optional Extended Run (2.3m long x 2.4m wide x 1.9m high)

We can also provide the Extended Run - Size : 4.6m long x 2.4m wide x 1.9m high for those wanting to give their chooks a little more space! If you would like a run we recommend placing your hen house person door in the end panel.  If you require a customised run to suit your requirements we are happy to assist. Top netting panel is optional - helps to keep the light breeds in and the sparrows out!

Classic hen house

We have no complaints,we have raised house of ground about 300mm to avoid water issues from neighbors run off,gravel ramp to pop door and no issues, using wood shaving inside and no issues, a little problem with perch rails sliding when chooks leave the rail but that's not a big issue as I'll make some blocks to stop sliding but still allow for removal for cleaning,we have also retained part of the run from old house for extra area during rain or when the bloody Hawks are about,so yep all good thank you,cheers Frank, p.s.we run 16 brown shaver and large free range area,hope this helps for future enquiries
