    Large chicken house

    The house is excellent, well made, sturdy, weatherproof, and a doddle to clean. I wanted to mark it 4.5 but the star system wouldnt allow me too! The only reason i havnt marked it 5 is the door. It is excellent from a security point of view but it rather resembles a guillotene and i would prefer it was secured whilst open by something more substancial than string. Very pleased it is UK made and out of recycled materials. Hens seem very happy with it! Would never buy a wooden one again. Found the assembly instructions easy follow having given up waiting for my son to put it together!

    Finally a well designed coop!

    This is brilliant! Easy to construct, well thought out and good to look at. My only suggestions would be a hinged laying hatch lid rather than the lynch (which really do lynch your fingers!) pins, and slightly higher perches. Otherwise it is damn near perfect, clearly designed by people who either keep chickens or know people who do. I would recommend this to anyone with no hesitation. My points are very minor compared to the overall excellence of the product.

    Good replacement chuck house

    Bought the large chicken house to replace yet another (cheap) rotten wooden one, as it looked a neater design than some of the other recycled plastic ones available. Put together simply and quickly in about an hour and chucks happily took to it. Having just paid £100 to have a ton of plastic wrap recycled, I would like it to have been cheaper, but that's just the farmer in me. Very impressed with the design and engineering of it. I might fabricate a hinge for it yet though. ;)

    new purchase

    Just bought the house. Pretty easy to erect and loved the clips rather than using screws. Only surprise was that the nest box lid is not attached with a hinge, just feels a bit awkward and could be 'fun' in windy weather! (GFD - Don't worry, it won't blow off !!! Hinges tend to rust, break or get stiff)

    Great chicken house

    Excellent house, girls and boy seem to like it. We put it up on blocks so they have space underneath to shelter from the weather. The only thing I can pick with is that there were some fixings missing, (which I should have rung about on the day it arrived), but my husband got them easily in our local agricultural merchants.

    Nest box hinge required.

    I had this product bought for me, though am not too sure if I would have chosen it myself. My main gripe is the lid must be removed completely in order to collect the eggs. Given that overall the design is not too bad, I can't understand why a hinge was not included. (GFD - It is a deliberate design feature to eliminate hinges, which are a major cause of problems: they rust, stiffen and break. It only takes a second to remove the lid.)

    Very pleased!

    I bought this following a very helpful discussion with Adrian about our siting of the house. I'm not the most practical person but I managed to put this together on my own ( albeit with the help of an ancient magnifying glass to read the instructions and see the diagrams!). Don't know why other reviewers want a hinged nest box - its quick to remove and will make cleaning very easy. No reviews from hens yet -new Cuckoo Marans moving in next week - and if they don't like it ...well they are dual purpose birds....

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*
