Please note our timber hen and animal housing is no longer available for purchase. We have enjoyed building these for the last 15+ years and offering them to NZ poultry keepers and lifestylers as a quality housing option. Sadly, due to material shortages, huge price increases and labour shortages brought on by Covid we can no longer afford to supply them to our valued customers for the foreseeable future.
