This coop looks good but it takes a while to weatherproof and assemble. Why isn’t the wood already treated? - needing just a top coat rather than three coats. I fear that it will take a lot of maintenance and repainting over time, especially the rails on the ground. The design could also be better. In particular, the entry ramp leaves a large hole for bedding to fall down - having a raised “lip” around the hole would be an improvement Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop

We use our Boughton Coop to house three young Bantam chicks. I have designed some furniture myself in the past but have rarely come across such a well ordered, thoughtful and beautiful structure. It says in the assembly manual that you need two people to put it together but I managed to do it on my own and all things lined up perfectly (IKEA eat your heart out!). It looks great in our garden and I am currently painting it green to blend in a bit more and preserve it. Although expensive it is well worth the money and will meet our, and our chicken's, needs for many years to come. Review for: Extreme Temperature Jacket for Boughton Chicken Coop

Not the same quality as the original at all and I think the necessity to treat timber before use should be writ larger. Confused about block that holds perch as it’s loose. At no point is there an Instruction for securing it. I have done so however with a rogue screw left over. Review for: Extreme Temperature Jacket for Boughton Chicken Coop

Chicken coop bought by Stephen Wearden was for me and I have 5 hens living comfortably in there. We have added extra chicken wire coming out from the bottom to make it extra fox proof. Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop
I bought a Boughton and am delighted with it. It is beautifully designed and easy to assemble with sensible pictures of the assembly stages.
May I offer four suggestions?
1 It should be possible within the price for you to tanalise [not sure of spelling] the timber. However, I have put preservative on the outside of mine and it really looks good in green.
2 The instructions miss off one stage at the end. I realised this when I had a loose part and two screws left. The perch support needs the screws from underneath.
3 I cut and fitted a 4' broom handle [£2 from B+Q] for a downstairs perch across the coop.. The bantams love it.
4 The coop is ideal for no more than 2 or 3 bantams if no extra run is attached.
Hope these comments are helpful.

Some of the panels were split through and were replaced. It’s a pity this is now made of using a soft wood, even with wood preservative not sure it will last as long as my old original one has.
However Polly was extremely helpful in replacing parts that were split through. Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop
