Chicken Lodge Large - Made from 100% Recycled Plastic

The Green Frog Designs Chicken Lodge Large is the perfect coop for both beginners and experienced chicken keepers. This large hen house will comfortably accommodate up to eight large fowl or fifteen bantams.

All our chicken coops are designed and manufactured in the UK using 100% recycled plastic waste. This means that our housing is extremely durable, effortless to clean and is eco-friendly, too!

Every Green Frog poultry coop is built to last and is for sale with a 25-year warranty included.

Chicken Lodge or Chicken House?

Our Chicken Lodge comes complete with a 23cm stand to raise your chicken coop off the ground, providing extra protection from predators, reducing the risk of frostbite in the winter, and making it even easier to collect eggs. Click here to view our Large Chicken House, which is available at ground level or with a 45cm stand.

 

FEATURES of your Recycled Plastic Chicken Coop from Green Frog Designs

Interior: This chicken lodge 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 or lodges. 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 fifteen 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 lodge after being outside in the rain, condensation can form inside the coop. Normally, this evaporates or drains straight out of the chicken lodge 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 coop.

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

 

Automatic Door Opener - This lodge 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*

    Brilliant Product

    This is a marvelous product. We have been going through rather expensive wooden coops for years, they never last, and are difficult to clean. What a joy it was to receive this, it is so easy to clean and looks very smart in the garden. The fact that it is made in the UK and from recycled plastics is another bonus.

    Easy to clean and wash out to eliminate red mites.

    Chicken Lodge Large

    I chose this coop to replace my little wooden one following a bout of red mite, plus the wooden one didn't stand up to wet weather at all well and got mouldy on the inside roof. This was fairly straightforward to assemble - the video helped. I did spend rather alot of time trimming the plastic hairs from the edges though! I requested to have the nest boxes on the left side (as opposed to right as per the picture) and got sent the correct configuration. I also have it raised higher off the ground on breeze blocks, so the access and overall cleaning out is wonderfully easy and gives extra run space to my 4 hennies. The gals prefer to perch in this coop too (they were all squishing into the nesting boxes in the wooden one!). It is expensive but roomy and very solid and I see it lasting for years. Am confident it's keeping them warm enough in cold weather - hopefully the vents will keep it cool in hot weather. Overall very happy with it!

    Prompt delivery and very easy to assemble with the help of my 5 year old granddaughter. My 7 hens took to it from day one

    I love it!

    I am so pleased with my coop and keep raving about it to any poor soul who will listen. It was dead easy to put together, so easy to clean with the trays and so far we've been red-mite-free. The chickenguard door means I don't have to get up at dawn. It also feels properly sturdy. The girls are happy too - they trot up to bed without a fuss, signalling their happiness with a daily egg. And I do like sneaking the back off when they're asleep to watch them all dozing on the perch. Even the lynchpins have such a pleasing little snap to them! Wouldn't be without it.

    Lodge Large

    My hens are thrilled with their new accommodation. It's so easy to clean out, ten minutes tops. During the recent heavy rain and wind their house was dry, even in the doorway. I also got the automatic door meaning I'm not stressing that the hens aren't looked after when I'm out or away relying on a teenager to get up or remember them. I also pleased to be reusing plastic waste.

    Chicken Lodge Large

    I have two of these. They are sooo easy to assemble and disasemble for cleaning and moving around. The are sturdy and smart. My chickens love sitting underneath and have had no trouble adapting to their new environment. I recently purchased the trays which certainly make cleaning out easy. Would have liked to have plastic perches as well but a minor criticism. Customer service excellent. Many thanks to GreenFrogDesigns
