Want to know what to look out for when buying a chicken coop?
Here are our hints and tips to help you choose the right home for your chickens.
Through keeping chickens for 16 years, building and buying several houses during this time, it soon became apparent that there are very few good chicken coops for sale available to the back garden keeper; that considers chicken welfare and being user friendly for the owner.
After much thought and planning Chicken School set to work designing the perfect and Chicken School Dormitory 1 was created. We were fortunate to be approached by the UK’s leading manufacturer of quality timber garden buildings, but since moved it to a local supplier. Enterprise Works is a supported business which provides real employment opportunities for people with both physical and learning disabilities.
We worked together to make the prototype which was tested in our own garden at Chicken School and now we have the answer to all your housing requirements, a purpose built chicken house offering the perfect design for chicken welfare and the keeper.
There are so many types of houses on the market. Houses are not cheap. It can be a mine field to ensure the breed & house is suitable for you, your family, garden & lifestyle.
Back garden keepers usually keep small numbers of chickens in houses with runs attached to give them predator protection while they are at work etc. Some people have a house which is moved regularly others have static houses.
