Mansion™ and Double Run Spring Package
“I had always fancied having chickens, watching them peck about and collecting warm eggs… and when we moved from Sydney to a rural area in Tasmania my dream came true! We finally had a day of lovely weather on Saturday to construct the Mansion coop with the double Mansion run and were surprised how easy it was! The step-by-step instructions were very clear. Previous construction projects almost ended in divorce The coop is sturdy, beautiful and well constructed. Every detail has been considered. We love it!”– Susan Moore, TAS

What you need to know
In order for chickens to lay eggs, they require nesting boxes that are comfy, cosy and tidy. They have to be elevated, shaded and free of draughts, with one side left open. This provides your hens with a calm, secluded environment in which to lay eggs. We have the perfect solution – all of our nesting boxes are custom built with these features in mind so you will have happy, healthy, egg-laying hens! The Mansion features 6 nesting boxes; 1 box per 3 hens is ample because they love to share. We’ve also made it easy for you to access your fresh eggs with an external nesting box lid. If you are like us and care about the quality, size, colour and frequency of your eggs, then click here to download our Ultimate Eggs Handbook.
Perches are often overlooked, but they are a critical part of your hen’s daily activities, like roosting! Not any perch will do, we have custom built 50mm perfectly shaped perches to suit your hens’ feet. Anything smaller can cause your hens to have sore feet and create further problems. Placement of perches is also important, as chooks need to feel secure when they snuggle up for the night. We have designed our perches to be perfectly placed, encouraging natural roosting instincts. Interested to know more about why perfect perches matter? Then click here to download your free eBook, Perch Importance: Chickens Need A Good Roost To Sleep. Add extra pleasure to your flappy family’s coop with our specially designed Chicken Swing perch where your chickens can – and will – sit and swing for hours!
All our timber is chemical free, weather resistant, mould resistant and termite/white-ant resistant to ensure you have a coop that stands the test of time in the harsh Australian climate. We only use A grade timber which is kiln dried slowly over months to make sure it’s perfectly prepared for a life of longevity. If you want to know more, download our timber information sheet here. When building a house, the stronger and thicker the timber, the better the home – the same applies to our chicken coops. This is why you will notice that our coops weigh far more than any others on the market. This strength and durability allows us to comfortably offer a warranty. When your coop arrives, ideally before assembly you will need to paint it. Painting will provide a superior longer lasting quality finish and is what we recommend! Painting the coop is just part of the fun, particularly if you get the whole family involved! Check out what others have done here!
Unfortunately, any feathered friend is vulnerable to nasty predators. Therefore, we use 10mm x 10mm galvanised wire mesh, which is fixed firmly in place to stop animals like snakes and rats from getting in. We have also added sliding bolts to help prevent prying creatures pushing the doors open. If you have particularly inquisitive pets, be sure to keep your chickens safe by adding a perimeter fence and concrete base. Talk to us if you have questions – live chat now, or call! Be sure to have a look at our Auto Door Opener, Motion Sensor Light and Wire Mesh Flooring for the ultimate in security add-ons for your coop.

Good ventilation is essential for happy productive hens. The Mansion Chicken Coop benefits from sliding windows, high ceilings and a capped off chimney to ensure an airy, draught-free environment for all seasons.
Cleaning your Backyard Chicken Coop is a bok-bok-breeze. The cleaning tray slides out in with a removable 30mm deep steel tray insert allowing for easy cleaning with zero fuss. It’s common to have nasty ‘poo traps’ in other chicken coops and this can cause problems for you and your hens. We have ensured that these traps don’t exist during our design phase. Even the perches are removable! The end result is a well-designed chicken coop that is easy to clean and more hygienic.

Asphalt rubber roofing makes for a magnificent water barrier. We design our roofs to be oversized so the rain falls off and away from the chicken coop, keeping it dry and comfy for your chooks.
