Well made, good solid chook house. Chooks took to it straight away. They didn’t even need any help with the ramp..
Brilliant, I’d be cosy in there myself! Kia ora
Chickens love their new bedroom!
My ladies love their new coop, it’s well made, nice to look at and super cosy. Thanks
We have 5 chickens and painted it white - love it. Easy to put together and nice and solid. Thank you!
The henhouse arrived promptly,went together easily, and the hens worked out how to scale the ramp and explore the house very quickly. Thank you for a quality product. Jane Woodhall
I was a little sceptical regards to some reviewers claiming they erected the Deluxe Hen House in 3 quarters of an hour. Putting it together took a little more time than that, but not that long. The screw together system was fast and efficient and I only needed help with one section of it. I have to say I am very impressed. The interior has got a warm sunny feel to it and my hens have no problem laying in the generous sized laying boxes. They also enjoy getting out of the odd rainy day beneath the house itself. In short, a very good buy for the asking price, and I'd recommend this to all prospective buyers. Also good communication from Appletons during the purchase. Thanks for the excellent product.
i am thrilled with with my Deluxe Coup and 1.9m high run. I assembled it all in one afternoon on my own. (62 yr old granny) Also purchased the step on feeder and Easy Care Drinker. I found all the little notes scribbled in pencil on the timber, very helpful. Many thanks.
The chook house was very easy to assemble, I did however get a stainless steel tray made up to fit the floor, this will make it more easy to clean and protect the wooden floor.We also purchased the drinker and the starter kit, which get the chook house up to a good start.Everything from Appletons is first class and we are very happy!
After installing our deluxe hen house, enclosed run and Omlet fencing we took charge of three hens from our friends who are heading overseas. The hens seem very happy in their new home and we have had four eggs in the first few days so all good there! Thank you for very fast processing of our order which enabled us to get up and running in record time.

900mm High Enclosed Run
The Deluxe Raised Hen House is available with an optional enclosed 0.9m high run off the front. The run will give your chooks access to a secure outside space all day. This option will give you added peace of mind knowing your hens are safe from predators and visiting dogs or a good way to ensure your girls stay off your immaculate flower beds or from discovering your vegetable garden. The optional run is separate to the house so each can be moved individually to a new area if required.
The run is app. 2.4m wide by 2.7m long and 0.9m high. The Deluxe Raised Hen House will then sit flush up to one of the panels. There will be a rectangular opening in this panel so the chooks can access the run via the pop hole in the house. Please note the pop-hole/door to the hen house will swing inwards on all models ordered with the run. This allows for easy closing and opening of the hen house without having to go into the run. The run panel that sits up to the hen house will also accommodate a hinged door to the run plus a chook pop-hole so the chooks can free range from the run into the garden/paddock. Three netting roof panels are included to make the run fully enclosed. Please note photo shows only two panels on roof.
