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.
Purchased coop as liked look of it , when coop arrived it was far better quality then anticipated so easy to assemble took less then an hour , fantastic coop houses my 4 Chickens and would recommend highly
I have had my enclosure and coop for nearly 10 years and it’s not showing it’s age a great credit to the quality materials used. We have just moved our whole enclosure and it looks close to new.
The arc was delivered promptly and went together very easily.
Three rescue hens settled in very quickly, laying well!
We bought this coop for our three chickens
I bought this model because I didn't want plastic but it came with an enormous amount of polystyrene that won't fit in my bin. It is sturdy and well make but I think the wood should have been treated in the factory. The postage was outrageously expensive considering it too nearly 2 weeks to arrive.The design is really good except the rope is too slippery and the hook doesnt stay in place. It is easy to clean and collect eggs.
Great chicken coupe. Straight forward to assemble. Strong and attractive in the garden.
This is a profoundly good hen house. We tried to purchase a competitor first. It arrived and we sent it back. This Ark arrived and it has been a joy. Yes, the wood is not hard wood and yes there is an issue with painting around the mesh but the design is terrific and the quality is top notch.
The design of this coop is excellent, second to none. The build quality has unfortunately fallen over the years however. The coop I purchased new, will undoubtedly be outlived by the older coops that I've bought second hand. Symptomatic of most things nowadays sadly. An average of 5 stars is very misleading, using the 'mean' average would give a more accurate rating.
I bought the Boughton Chicken coop after spending several years researching different products. It's a great design which makes it easy to clean and look after the chickens. However, the wood is not pressure treated which meant it took about five days to paint. It was also really difficult to paint the wood behind the metal wire, and I'm not sure how long it will last without treating it again every couple of years. Although it's a great design I'm disappointed that the wood is not pressure treated and would have preferred spending more money on one that is.
