    Excellent coop

    This is a brilliant coop. After suffering a terrible red mite infestation we needed a plastic coop. A search for something just right lead to Greenfrog Designs. Their customer service is second to none, answering any questions we had quickly. The coop arrived a little bit quicker than the estimated delivery date given. It was easy for two people to put together and is so quick and easy to clean out. Our chickens love it and all 8 of them fit in nicely, with plenty of room. All in all I can't recommend this coop enough, I wish we had bought it in the first place rather than wasting our money on a wooden coop

    Large Chicken House

    I now have 5, and they are great. Easy to clean, plenty of room even for large hens. Fun colours, not so big that there in your view. And the automatic opening devise makes life so easy. Highly recommend.

    Great but bits missing

    We really like this product. You need a fair bit of space and patience to assemble. Unfortunately there were quite a few items missing from the order - washers, screws, pins, pulley cord, which was a bit frustrating. [GFD - Unfortunately, we left out the bag of fixings, but they were sent on immediately we were informed. Sorry for that.]

    Brilliant

    Well designed concept manufactured to a high standard. After getting through 2 wooden coops over recent years this is a revelation. We've recently experienced heavy snow and high winds in Cumbria. The interior of the coop has remained dry and the structure is completely stable. Maybe a stand would be useful. I've stood mine on large plastic pots to eliminate rodent problems. Thanks [GFD - Our Lodge design is identical with integral legs !!]

    yes, it’s easy to clean BUT....

    Have had this house for a little over two years now. Yes it’s easy to clean. But an absolute beggar to put together. The design of the nest box lid leaves a lot to be desired: the overlap is far too short and water creeps under and ends up dribbling inside. I thought at first it was due to condensation - which it does get especially in cold weather - but it is much worse during wet weather. Also, the removable nest box lid lets rain in during the time it is open to collect eggs. To be honest, I’m not ‘sold’ on it.... the larger wooden one I have for other hens seems much more airy in the summer and cosy in the winter and no obvious condensation.

    Happy Hens!!

    Hi, Really happy with the ease that this went together. My girls have all taken up residence (first night I had to 'encourage' them in). Auto door is fantastic - no more cold, wet trips into the hen run in my PJs! I have one question - I have the large house which came without legs. The local ratties (I live next door to a common) have taken up residence underneath the house. Will they be able to gnaw through the floor? If so, do you have any suggestions? The girls used to live in an Eglu Go Up so we didn't have this problem. (GFD - Rats are always a problem with houses on ground, so never feed the birds in the coop. Rats shouldn't gnaw their way in, but could do so. You can always raise the house on a few bricks or blocks.)

    CHICKEN HEAVEN

    Love the design, easy to follow instructions, my 6 girls love it, easy to clean, everything about this hen house is brilliant.

FEATURES of your Recycled Plastic Chicken Coop from Green Frog Designs

Interior: This chicken house has two nest boxes and two removable wooden perches. The nest box is cleverly located on the side of the coop to provide even more internal space for your chickens.

Door: The door is designed so that it won’t trap dirt in the door slots, and it can be easily opened and closed manually, or with a Chickenguard automatic door opener. The door is very safe for chickens and is too small for foxes to gain entry.

Easy Access and Cleaning: The nest box lid can be easily removed to gain access to freshly laid eggs using quick-release pins. For routine cleaning, the full width back panel detaches in the same way in seconds. The smooth plastic interior allows dirt to be effortlessly removed using a brush in just a fraction of the time of other poultry coops available on the market. For more thorough cleaning, the roof detaches in seconds to provide even further access, and more stubborn dirt can be removed using a hose or pressure washer. Unlike wooden coops, plastic dries in minutes, which is particularly useful in winter.

Ventilation: Our poultry products feature adjustable air vents to provide the chickens with constant air flow, preventing respiratory issues and reducing moisture content within the coop. At least one vent should be open permanently.

Assembly: This product is delivered flat-packed and can be quickly assembled by following the comprehensive instructions in the user guide, or by watching our assembly YouTube video- you should allow about an hour for this if it is the first time you have assembled one of our houses. Most parts are held together using clips made from our own waste plastic, though quick release clips (linch pins) and some other parts are metal. The house features carry handles on the roof so it can be easily moved around a garden once assembled. If you ever need to relocate your coop to a different address, it is just as easily dismantled and will not be damaged during the process.

CAPACITY - Coop suitable for 8 large chickens or 15 bantams

Poultry Club of Great Britain Guidelines indicate that this house is suitable for a maximum of eight large fowl or 15 bantams.

Soil Association Guidelines which require a little more space per bird, suggest that this house is ideal for up to 6 larger birds or 10 bantams.

Both of these guidelines can be followed, and it is always recommended to provide your birds with a little more extra space, if possible.

OPTIONAL EXTRAS

Droppings Trays - In certain atmospheric conditions or if the chickens come into the house after being outside in the rain, condensation can form inside the house. Normally, this evaporates or drains straight out of the chicken house and is not a problem at all. However, if you use an absorbent bedding material such as newspaper or wood shavings, this will 'wick up' any moisture. This moisture will react with the droppings to give off ammonia, which is not good for the respiratory health of your birds. The solution is really quite simple, and it is to use droppings trays to contain the bedding.  


Droppings trays also make it easier to clean your hen house. They are easy to handle, and you can simply tip the droppings and shavings into a wheelbarrow or garden refuse sack.

Our droppings trays for our chicken coops are made from black recycled plastic (ABS - the same material used for car bumpers). We use 2.5mm thick ABS, which make trays quite rigid and surprisingly tough. The trays are approximately 25mm (one inch) deep, so hold a good quantity of bedding, such as wood shavings. The surfaces are smooth, and they have sloping sides, so they are easy to clean and can be stacked if required. Please note that the trays are not an exact fit, and there will be small gaps between the edges of the trays and the sides of the house.

Top tip: we generally find that wood shavings are preferable to newspaper as a bedding/litter material.

Automatic Door Opener - This house has been designed to work with a Chickenguard Automatic Opener. This simply bolts to the front of the house (holes are pre-drilled for you) and the cord attaches to a split ring in the door, replacing the manual draw cord and handle.
We supply the Chickenguard Premium opener, which has the following features:

- Auto Open - Specify Time or Light Level
- Auto Close - Specify Time or Light Level
- Manual Open and Close - Large Buttons
- Simple to set up and reliable to use
- Weatherproof housing
- Runs on 4 x AA batteries with low battery warning
- UK designed and manufactured
- 3 Year warranty

The Chickenguard opener can be bought with this product or can be bought later (see our Spares/Accessories section). It costs more to buy later, as extra shipping costs will be incurred.

We're proud to produce and sell eco-friendly chicken coops made from recycled plastic. Green Frog's chicken coops are manufactured in the UK. And if you're buying in the UK, we'll ship your chicken house to you for free*
