Chicken Lodge Medium - Made from 100% Recycled Plastic

The Green Frog Designs Chicken Lodge Medium is the perfect coop for both beginners and experienced chicken keepers. This mid-sized hen house will comfortably accommodate up to five large fowl or nine 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 Medium 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 5 large chickens or 9 bantams

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

Soil Association Guidelines which require a little more space per bird, suggest that this house is ideal for up to 4 larger birds or 7 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.

    Great chicken coop

    Really easy to put together with very few tools needed. Took less than two hours and managed it in my own. Looks great, really sturdy. The chickens haven’t moved in yet but looks like it’s going to be really easy to clean and access.

    Chicken Lodge

    I’d seen our friends Lodge and spotted a product I liked. It is well designed. Assembly shows how neatly a recycled material can be re-purposed, cut accurately and be cleverly and simply connected. Those pins are great. After a very short while I left our 11-year-old to complete the job. 4 things I look for in a coop are water tightness, ventilation, ease of access for cleaning, security and longevity, all integral parts of the Greenfrog Lodge. Add to that it can be disassembled, deep cleaned and may well still be a functioning coop in 50 years’ time, would’ve said 100+ but we’ll need to see what the weather up here does to it! Superb coop, robust and fit for purpose!

    Chicken Lodge Medium Blue

    Great product - this is my first ever coop, but I bought it knowing that a friend has had one for 8+ years and it is still going strong.

    Great product

    This is my first coop so I don't have anything to compare it to but it ticks all the boxes for me. Its made of recycled plastic so no guilt. It took myself and my son about an hour to put together. Its sturdy and very easy to clean.

    Great chicken house

    This is an amazing product. It is so very easy to clean, simple to remove all parts when needed, the chickens love it and the electric door really makes it all very easy. I strongly recommend this...only our rabbits are very jealous and now want one too!

    Chicken Lodge Medium

    I am extremely pleased with the medium chicken lodge, purchased a few weeks ago. It was fairly straight forward to assemble using a combination of the instruction sheet and video. It probably took 2 of us about 2 hours. I bought it because of a problem with red mite in my old wooden chicken hut. After 3 weeks I did find a few red mite in the hole in one of the perches but they were easily cleaned away and there has been no sign of the little horrors since! The hens are much happier. I would have awarded 5 stars except that the ramp has started to bend (maybe my hens are too fat!). It's not really a problem but perhaps the ramp should be reinforced or made of thicker plastic? All in all I think that this is an excellent product.

    Chicken Lodge Medium

    Had my lodge for a few weeks now and I’m very pleased with it. It was relatively straightforward to assemble (two of us). It’s very sturdy and I’m confident it will be durable as the material appears robust. It’s so easy to clean compared to wooden coop and dries super quick which will be particularly good in winter months.

    Chicken Lodge Medium

    I have 2 mediums and the large version. I also have 3 other coops from other companies. I must say that I wouldn't buy any other than Green Frog coops in future. They are easy to erect, take apart and move. They are easy to clean and extremely durable. My hens and cockerels have taken to them straight away. They have completely removed my fear of vermin attack. The best I have found and I can't think of any improvements.

    Excellent product!

    Not only is this chicken coop excellent, the customer service is just as good! Mr Morgan was not only very helpful but also accommodating. I received the coop just in time for my daughters 7th birthday. My daughter was over the moon and helped me to build it as it is not that difficult to build. Highly recommended!
