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

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

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. Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop

Great chicken coupe. Straight forward to assemble. Strong and attractive in the garden. Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop
After painting it with a few coats in the garage and assembling on the patio we have sturdy functional house and run area for three lively bantams who have taken to it rapidly. Thanks Review for: Boughton Chicken Coop
