Eggcitingly we also offer express services. If you have a birthday or something where you need it urgently, we can organise a faster delivery service and can quote on a price on application, just email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware, that there will be some dispatch and delivery delays around public holidays. Please allow an extra three working days from time of dispatch, to give both our warehouse team, and couriers to catch up after some time away. Thanks for your patience and understanding with this.
No – we can organise an authority to leave the delivery, so you don’t need to be home and the courier will leave it in a safe place. If you would however prefer to be a sign for only, we can also arrange this.
Its ok! Sometimes couriers will do a split delivery. If the remainder of your order is not delivered the following working day, please email us at email@example.com with what is missing, and we will follow up with the couriers to ensure everything to you as soon as possible.
We use a very comprehensive freight calculator to source the most affordable freight cost for you using over 4 major logistics companies Australia wide to ensure this.

We endeavour to deliver to every address in Australia, however some addresses that are remote or difficult to access (some islands for instance) need to be quoted on a Price on Application basis, but we will make sure we can get it to you – we have never had an order we could not deliver! If it is easier, we can always for you to collect from a certain collection area.
We use a great courier networks and on forwarding agents that usually know your local areas quite well. Due to the size of the goods, and the courier systems, unfortunately, we do not deliver to PO boxes.
From time-to-time circumstances outside our control will lead to delays in delivery times. Wherever possible we will indicate potential delays on an affected products details page. If there are any delays we will be sure to keep you updated at all times – we want to get your chicken goods to you as quickly as you do!
While there may be slight increase in price with added accessories, it does work out much cheaper to order all your chicken goodies at the same time, as ordering additional extras on their own later down the track will not be as cost effective.

You can track this all via our online customer portal which you will get access to with your login and password via email also Or, feel free to email our friendly staff at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get straight back to you with an update!

If the words ‘flat pack’ and ‘assembly’ make you nauseous, no need to stress – we can arrange assembly for you! Upon ordering we send a work order through to an affiliate company who will allocate someone in your area to come and do all the dirty work for you! They will contact you when they are available to coordinate an assembly day and time to work for your needs
All of our coops will come flat packed – all panels’ are complete, wire mesh attached and holes are pre-drilled. We have made assembly as easy as possible, and upon ordering you will have access to set up instructions and a video to follow along with. If you ever do have dramas – we always have someone online you can chat with for assistance
You bet there is! We like to give our customers the best chance of a successful, stress free assembly, so offer both written instructions and an assembly video for your viewing pleasure
While it is possible to put together all of our coops on your own, to make it a quicker and easier process, we suggest having two sets of hands available. As the old adage goes ‘many hands make light work’!
Just a Philips head drill will ensure the job is done in a jiffy!
All of our instructions can be found on our customer portal, along with assembly videos. You would have received a link to our customer portal with your invoice on order, along with the password for access.
In short – yes! To elaborate, we cannot stress the importance of painting your coop enough! As our coops come in the raw timber form, it does need to be painted using a high quality exterior house paint to ensure it is well protected against our ever changing Australian climate. We want to ensure that you and your chickens get the longest life from your coop, and painting is the best way to assure this. We have found Dulux exterior house paint works best with our coops and 2-3 coats will get you the best finish. Paint inside and out keep your coop strong and provide the best protection. Have fun with it, and send us through some photos of your creations once they are done
When it comes to keeping your chickens safe, and any unwanted visitors out of your coop, we always suggest putting your coop on a base or footing, or using a flooring with your coop. This works to keep burrowing predators out of your coop, and will also give your coop a longer life by lifting it up off the ground and out of any moisture.
There are a number of different flooring options for your coop depending on how permanent you want it to be, and how much you wish to spend. Some of the most popular options are below:
Concrete BaseWire Mesh FlooringPavers/TilesTimber Sleepers
Once you purchase a new Backyard Chicken Coop, you will gain access to our online customer portal which details how to best achieve each of these options, and you will also get access to foundations guides for each of our coops, to outline the measurements required for your purchased coop.
To keep your coop looking spick and span for many years to come, we suggest painting your coop every 2-3 years. Like above 2-3 coats is best to ensure your chickens will be house proud
Nope! Our coops will be all ready to go with painting – no primers, no sanding – no trouble!
Painting prior to assembly is the easiest option – no craning your neck and popping your bank out to get into all the little nooks and crannies. Paint all the panels back and front, just be cautious of any sliding tracks for doors so they don’t stick when putting the coop together.
You sure can! We have a PayID, so you can safely and securely transfer straight from our account to yours. Ask our staff for our unique PayID when completing an order and we can help you out!
