Did you know there are certain fundamentals that chickens require in order to lay eggs regularly?

- Heavy duty timber: 30mm thick with 12mm cladding (twice that of other coops)

- Width: 1.43m
- Height: Run: 1.2m / Hutch: 1.57m / Chimney: 1.8m

Even the fussiest hen will be a happy productive layer in our Backyard Chicken CoopTM
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 Penthouse has three nesting boxes – one box per three hens is more than adequate as hens love to share. Accessing your fresh eggs is even easier with the external nesting box lid. This stops your hens sleeping and pooping on them (which is unhygienic!)
The perches in chicken coops are a critical component in your hen’s health, and can often be overlooked. Thankfully, we have custom built 50mm perches, perfectly shaped to your hen’s feet. Anything too small or large will cause your hens to get sore feet and could create more problems. We have positioned two sets of perches at different heights to replicate their natural environment – birds like to roost up high naturally. 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!
To ensure your coop withstands the harsh Australian climate, we only use timber that is weather resistant, mould resistant, termite/white-ant resistant and chemical free. Thick A-grade timber that has been slowly kiln dried is used – this guarantees it for a long life in your backyard. You wouldn’t use anything less to build your home, so the same applies to our chicken coops! This is evident in the weight of our coops too – they weigh more than others on the market. We are so confident with the strength and durability of our coops, that we can comfortably offer you a warranty. When your coop arrives, ideally before assembly you will need to paint or oil it. Painting will provide a superior longer lasting quality finish and is what we recommend! However if you prefer to oil your coop, you will need to use “Intergrain UltraDeck” which can purchased from us, or at any hardware store. We have tested a range of different oils and this meets our standards of protection. Painting the coop is just part of the fun, particularly if you get the whole family involved! Check out what others are doing here.
Unfortunately, any feathered friend is subject 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 locks, sliding bolts and padlocks to help prevent prying creatures pushing the doors open. If you have particularly inquisitive pets, be sure to keep your chicken’s safe by adding a perimeter fence and concrete base. Talk to us if you have questions – live chat now, or call! Lastly, make sure you 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 Penthouse Chicken Coop benefits from sliding windows, high ceilings and a capped off chimney to ensure a well ventilated environment that is free from draughts during all seasons. Ceiling fans and air conditioning coming soon (might take a while).
No need to get out the high pressure hose or leaf blower – we have built the next best thing. All cleaning trays slide out easily, and come with removable 30mm deep steel tray inserts. This ensures cleaning is a breeze and avoids the possibility of nasty ‘poo traps’ that other chicken coops have. These cause problems for you and your hens, so we have guaranteed during the design phase that these traps don’t exist. Even the perches can be removed! This means that you have the best-designed chicken coop in the neighbourhood that is not only easy to clean, but hygienic too. Try our All Natural Homemade Chicken Coop Cleaner! Less time cleaning equals more time for you to enjoy your new coop!
In order to keep your hens safe and dry, we have built our coops with tongue and groove style timber cladding, ensuring the ultimate water barrier. Also, our roofs are designed to be oversized ensuring the rain falls off and away from the chicken coop. We’re sure your hens will appreciate this – plus the edges are smooth so kids are safe too!
