Mobile chicken coop - Ruth,

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.

What a [s]coop! - John,

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. John Murfitt Cornwall

Good service , shame the wood is not as good as the original - Jill,

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.

Highly recommended - Carlene,

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.

I'm delighted with this arc. - Rebecca,

The arc was delivered promptly and went together very easily. Three rescue hens settled in very quickly, laying well!

Fantastic design - Caitlin,

We bought this coop for our three chickens

Bit cramped for 3 hens, better for bantams - Lysbeth,

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 coupe - Jennifer,

Great chicken coupe. Straight forward to assemble. Strong and attractive in the garden.

Very good hen house - Simon,

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.
