Did you know there are certain fundamentals that chickens require in order to lay eggs regularly? They may seem simple, but the humble hen is quite particular about her food, nesting area and perches and is also sensitive to climate and stress.  We have built The Penthouse Chicken Coop to cater to all your hens’ needs – and yours!

What you need to know

Egg Collection

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 Penthouse features 3 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

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!

Timber

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. Remember your coop arrives raw, you will need to paint it prior to assembly with Duluxe Exterior House Paint to ensure your warranty is valid. 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!

Security

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. Download your free eBook – The Ultimate Predator Prevention Handbook.

Ventilation

Good ventilation is essential for happy productive hens. The Penthouse Chicken Coop benefits from sliding windows, high ceilings and a capped off chimney to ensure an airy, draught-free environment for all seasons.

Cleaning

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.

Roof

Tongue & groove timber style cladding 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.

    :

    We have erected our coop and our four girls love it and so do we. The girls are laying beautiful eggs and when I let them out to free range they climb the outside ramp to go to bed. Thank you we are very happy with their Penthouse.

    :

    We bought the penthouse for both of our girls (we like to give our family lots of space) and it has pride of place in their garden. It was easy to put together and we have comfort that the ladies are safe and happy. We open it for them from 6am and close it up around 5pm so that the puppies can run around and Telie and Weezie stay safe. We have an enforced time share roster for the backyard, until the puppies get a bit older and get used to the ladies. The ladies love the puppies and look forward to them visiting around their home when they jump in ready for bed. They especially love the horses and spend most of the day with them in the horse yards and stables. It is never a problem asking the girls to go to bed, they happily follow us and jump in. It seems that everyone loves the Penthouse because as soon as we open up in the morning, the ducks, the magpies, the apostle birds and the doves are all lined up to jump in and help with the house cleaning.

    The Penthouse is a great coop easy to put together, easy to keep clean and is an excellent run and house for the chickens. I love the ease of access to collect the eggs which makes it a user friendly coop for any backyard.

    :

    The ease of putting the coop together was just amazing. It was straight forward and practically took no time at all. It all came together so well and is so well made. We have fox issues in our area I can rest assured knowing that our girls are safe. I love the ease of the cleaning. The poop tray just slides out and I bin the hay and hose the tray and it’s good to go, love it! We painted our coop with a stain. I personally like the natural look and it goes well with our backyard and surroundings.
