The Sussex Chicken House has a unique look and has been specifically designed to give your hens’ protection not only from pesky predators but also the wet and windy weather we so often experience.
A lot of thought has gone into the latest version of our popular Sussex Chicken House. We’ve increase the size by 15% and it now has an amazing 19.64 square feet of secure space in one practical and self contained coop.
There is also an extendable run that conveniently fits the Sussex. So you always have the option of easily increasing the size of the secure run – without any hassle or D.I.Y skills.
The long slanted felt free roof provides the perfect cover even in driving rain, keeping your hens and their food dry. This is one of the reasons why so many people have chosen the Sussex coop in the past.
The raised sleeping and laying area now has over 7.24 square feet of space which is big enough to hold up to 4 or 5 hens
The large nesting box can be unbolted – a feature which allows you to conveniently access the internal housing area of the chicken house, making it quick and even easier for you to clean.
We’ve also increased the depth of the pull out tray so any bedding you place in it doesn’t spill out when it is removed. The large door to the run and the smaller one to the raised housing area make all areas easily accessible.
The large nesting box provides a cozy area for your birds to lay. Its high position and lift up lid allows you to easily collect your eggs, without disturbing your hens.
Two thin slits above the nesting box provide the housing area with the all important draft free ventilation which is needed to keep your hens healthy.
Four mini Perspex windows allow lots of light into the internal area of the coop which will keep your hens happy.
The two large correctly designed and fully removable perches are purposely positioned high to encourage your hens to roost at night and not to sleep in the nesting boxes.
The Sussex coop has a clever door opening mechanism which allows the door to the run to be conveniently opened from the outside.
A handy little ramp allows your hens’ easy access in and out of the housing area. It has been raised enough to give your birds more ground in which to scratch around in underneath, as well as keeping things dry.
We’ve also upgraded the protective mesh. All our coops and runs use strong chicken wire that is on average 50% thicker than the standard stuff found on many of the other online suppliers products.
Our chicken wire is set deep within the framework and not simply stapled on. This extra effort means that overall the Sussex is stronger and your hens should be much better protected.
The Sussex chicken house has been created by expert designers and manufactured by experienced carpenters. The workmanship that has gone into producing this coop for you is evident in the way it has been beautifully finished and the attention to detail.
All the woodwork has been jointed, sanded, glued, bolted and finished to the highest standards. The wood we use in this product is highly durable and scented softwood which is noted for its resistance to decay and rot.
The superb quality and beautiful design of the Sussex means that it will look fantastic in any garden, and is guaranteed to give you and your chickens many years of pleasure.

Our wooden coops are treated with a base coat of wood preservative.The wood we use in this product is a highly durable and scented softwood which is noted for its resistance to decay and rot.
As with all outdoor wooden structures we strongly recommend that you treat your coop with a high quality varnish or wood preservative before exposing it to the elements and that you re-treat it at least once a year (preferably before the winter season) to maintain the applied preservative and water repellent properties. There are many popular products available with Cuprinol , Ronseal and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.
We also recommend that you try and position your chicken coop in a protected area which is not overly exposed to high winds and the elements.
